Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Brian Compton
I've read many of this wonderful man's books, and after finishing his Classics of Indian Spirituality series, had to go further into the Bhagavad Gita with this priceless 3-set Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living. Lots of people have written thoughtful reviews of the first book in the series but few mention this second book. Honestly, I could write chapters on how this easy to read book will help anyone on the spiritual journey.
Amazon - L Humphreys
The Sanskrit, the poem, then the real life example of how to apply this spiritual wisdom is so beautifully written. It doesn't matter how often I read, or how far between reads, every time I open this book it applies perfectly to my life. It is a text for leading the good life with modern day examples. I've given this book to more people than any other and am so grateful it was recommended to me.
M. P. Pandit
A fascinating presentation of the Gita to the modern world. . . . a faithful translation accompanied by a detailed commentary which is the most interesting part of the work. . . . His lectures are full of helpful anecdotes from the lives of eminent saints, yogis, thinkers in the West: one does not like to miss a single page. . . .The author is convincing, authentic and faithful in his exposition
Amazon - Parsotan Singh
This book is helping me, in a very simple way, to better understand the teachings of Bhagavadgita. With great ease, it's making those teachings work for me. For many years I have been looking for Bhagavadgita with this type of commentary. Example: Lord Krishna addressed Arjuna as the "Destroyer of the enemy." That 'enemy' is my ego which is hurting me, and not a person or something physical, as commonly interpreted.
Amazon - Rich Heart
Immensely inspirational. The author makes it easily readable and practically useable for those who are being introduced to the profound insights in the Bhagavad Gita. I find it to be spiritual in nature as opposed to being religious . . . tapping into universal Truths which are timeless and without cultural constraints. Highly recommended.
