    Without Fear of Understanding

    Religion or the religious is not the focus of this particular translation. This book is truly for those of us that struggle within ourselves to 'know thyself'. The war spoken about in the book is the war that we all can somehow relate to, the dualities, the fears, the skepticism and then realization of the incomprehensible. The beauty in the Bhagavad Gita resembles the poetry of life, calm but forceful, stern while also sympathetic and compassionate. This book does'nt question an individuals beliefs, but it somehow insures that there is a belief, and offers different perceptions toward our own personal outlooks. In my opinion, The Bhagavad Gita was'nt designed for the highly intelligent or the remarkably ignorant, but intended for the people who have an 'unexplainable ' love for The Creator....because ultimately it will be those people who will grasp a true understanding of it.

    A premise of the victory of war starts a poem about heaven and life on earth for us.

    It begins with questions and they are answered with dignity and might. It gave me confidence to read material that previously had not existed in my soul. The passages about heaven were sublime.
