Bhagavad-gītā attributed to Abū al-Fayż ibn Mubārak Fayżī (Fayyāżī)

[Preliminary Entry] A versified Persian adaptation of the Bhagavad-gītā that retains the division into eighteen chapters (adhyāyas) of the Sankrit Bhagavadgītā. The text survives in many manuscript copies and is frequently attributed to Fayżī. But we lack any confirmation of this authorship, and the text’s style is not consistent with Fayżī’s other works.
