Another Question Suddenly raised in my mind, I know that there is Bhagvad-Gita which is told by Lord Krishna. But I heard about other Gita which is told by lord krishna like Uddhav-Gita, So, Do you know the exact number of the Gita which is told by lord krishna him-self?

Note:The Question is Different from this question: Difference between different types of Gita (Uddhava-Gita, Rudra-Gita etc.)
Because, I want to know the Gita which is told by lord himself with name.

So Please Share your idea with some valid resources like from Our Scriptures. Thanks.

    'Gita' means a song. It is called 'Bhagavad geeta' since He sang it; it literally means 'Song of god'. are you looking for the scriptures or part of scriptures that is known by the name suffixed gita(ending with word 'Gita') and spoken by God? Or are you trying to find out how many times God spoke the knowledge to different people? – Vishal prabhu lawande Jun 2 '16 at 7:29
