Overview

Eknath Easwaran is a foremost translator and interpreter of the much-loved Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. In this last book of his three-volume verse-by-verse commentary on the Gita, covering chapters 13 – 18, Easwaran translates each verse, relates it to our modern lives through stories and anecdotes, and gives us spiritual exercises that we can use every day. He explains the concept of karma, the vast network of cause and effect, and offers many examples to illustrate its immense reach. He shows how everyday choices, taken together, can lead a society to violence and waste, or to a higher way of living. This volume ends with a glorious description of bhakti yoga, the path of devotion.

Instructions in how to use Easwaran’s universal method of passage meditation are included.

Amazon - Janine Bourdo
This book is so easy to read! The author presents examples of the Gita's meaning from many sources and is obviously widely knowledgeable. How often do you find yourself laughing out loud at deep spiritual discussion? You will here.

I have yet to read anyone in addition to Sri Easwaran who can show me how to take the science of yoga from intellectual comprehension to lifestyle integration. Daily reading from this three volume set will change your life. Try it for ninety days, then stop. You'll return to the daily habit. Having a problem? Use the index in the back of the volume: It's marvelous!
Oh, and don't feel like you need to read from first to last page. You can open to any page and find pearls of wisdom.

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
