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.
