This book gives knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe.
At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder:
Why should he fight?
What is the meaning of his life?
Where is he going after death?
In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path. Prior to this there were dozens of Bhagavad-gita translations available in the West, but no Western devotees. This despite the fact that the Krishna’s ultimate instruction in the Gita is ‘become My Devotee.’ Now there are thousands of devotees worldwide. Judge for yourself.
Discover the potency of a pure message delivered as it is by a pure devotee of Krishna. Bhagavad-gita’s 700 concise verses are elaborately explained to provide a definitive guide to the science of self-realisation. Find out why Bhagavad-gita has provided spiritual nourishment to great thinkers such as Gandhi, Einstein, Huxley, Thoreau, Kant, Goethe, and Schopenhauer.
