For the unversed, J. Robert Oppenheimer was widely influenced by the Hindu sacred book Bhagavad Gita. Multiple reports suggest that Oppenheimer had memorized and deeply understood the core value of the Bhagavad Gita. Moreover, he used to keep a copy of the Hindu Sacred book by his work desk. Furthermore, it is also said that Oppenheimer used to gift the English-translated version of the Bhagavad Gita to his colleagues and friends. Oppenheimer was so influenced by the Hindu Sacred book Bhagavad Gita that he learned Sanskrit in 1933 and first read the Gita in the original language. In fact, after the successful test of the Atomic bomb in the Trinity Test in Mexico, Oppenheimer used a quote from the Bhagavad Gita. He used Lord Krishna's quote when he told Arjuna in the Gita, "Now I have become Death, the destroyer of worlds".
