Revealing the deeper meaning of the Gita's hidden symbology, this book shows how the warriors doing battle on the field of Kurukshetra represent the negative tendencies of the human ego pitted against the divine qualities of the soul, and how the science of Yoga can help us achieve the joy of material and spiritual victory on the battlefield of daily life. Features Paramahansa Yogananda's original translation of the Bhagavad Gita for the first time in sequential form. Includes: Using self-analysis and introspection for continuous personal growth, Yoga methods for creating a life of peace and inner harmony, Understanding the psychological forces that help - and those that hinder - spiritual progress, Creating an ideal balance of material and spiritual goals, How to experience the deeper states of meditation and divine illumination.

This is a significantly abridged version of Paramahansa Yogananda's complete Gita commentary "God Talks to Arjuna". To that extent, it provides an more accessible introduction to the Gita for the curious. If you're not sure, start with this read. Sri Yogananda's massive commentary, however, is highly recommended to those already familiar with Vedantic theology. That it was written from a higher level of consciousness than what the vast majority of mankind will ever experience is self-evident. Although, many of it's explanations are not new (as other qualified commentators have brought forth similar interpretations), the subtlety and sheer depth of this revelation is, at times, overwhelming! Nearly every sentence opens a new door that lets more of the light of Spirit shine through.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
