Buddhism and Bhagavad-Gita

I remember being approached by someone on campus who asked if I wanted to give a donation in exchange for a book called the Bhagavad-Gita. The cover of the book and the name of the book both sounded "eastern" and I asked what it was - a religion? a part of a religion? what was it? Unforutnately, the person gave me a very vague, general answer that really didn't tell me anything except he had a bitterness toward the university education system.

Anyways, I found a nice article about the differences between Buddhism and the Bhagavad-gita. It's every clear-cut and gives a nice, brief introdution to each of the teachings.
