Overview

Here, in one compact volume, is the episode of the great Hindu epic the Mahabharata known as “The Message of the Master” or the “Song of God,” in which Krishna reveals himself to be a god and expounds on the duties of the warrior, the prince, and all those who wish to follow in the path of the divine. This 1907 volume is a compilation of the best English translations available at the turn of the 20th century—edited by one of the most influential thinkers of the early “New Age” movement known as New Thought, which was intensely interested in all manner of spirituality—and serves as a succinct introduction to Hindu philosophy. A beloved guide to living a fulfilling life, this is essential reading for those interested in global religion and comparative mythology.

American writer WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (1862–1932)—aka Theron Q. Dumont—was born in Baltimore and had built up a successful law practice in Pennsylvania before professional burnout led him to the religious New Thought movement. He served as editor of the popular magazine New Thought from 1901 to 1905, and as editor of the journal Advanced Thought from 1916 to 1919. He authored dozens of New Thought books—including Arcane Formula or Mental Alchemy and Vril, or Vital Magnetism—under numerous pseudonyms, some of which are likely still unknown today.
