Paperback ISBN: 1608680142
The Bhagavad Gita has been called India’s greatest contribution to the world. For more than 5,000 years, this great scripture has shown millions in the East how to fill their lives with serenity and love. Now, these ancient secrets have been brought to us in the West in a beautiful prose version that makes the story of the Gita clear and exciting, and makes its truths understandable and easily applied to our busy lives. The Gita is a universal love song sung by God to His friend man. It can’t be confined by any creed. It is a statement of the truths at the core of what we all already believe, only it makes those truths clearer, so they become immediately useful in our daily lives. These truths are for our hearts, not just our heads. The Gita is more than just a book, more than mere words or concepts. There is an accumulated potency in it. To read the Gita is to be inspired in the true sense of the term: to be in-spirited,” to inhale the ancient and ever new breath of spiritual energy.
