Gita is the second solo studio album by Brazilian musician Raul Seixas. It was released in 1974, shortly after he returned to Brazil (he was exiled in the United States by orders of the military régime). Gita is one of Raul's more critically acclaimed albums, selling more than 600,000 copies and receiving a Gold Certification by ABPD.

The album shares its name with the religious Hindu epic poem Bhagavad Gita. The eponymous track also references the Bhagavad Gita heavily. It was voted by the Brazilian edition of Rolling Stone to be the 72nd greatest Brazilian song.[1] Despite the lyrics being original, the musical arrangement is a version of the song "No expectations" by the Rolling Stones.
