A spiritual treasure house of wisdom, the Bhagavad Gita is said to contain the essence of every Upanishad. Its pages enshrine the sacred lore of ancient India.
The teaching opens with Arjuna's indecision on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. He slumps in his chariot, confused over duty, and refuses to fight. The sincere disciple's despair moves the Lord to reveal wisdom that is as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago; like Arjuna, we each face the battlefield of life and mind. Stand up and fight! the Lord tells us. Surrender only to me.
In these eighteen chapters from the epic Mahabharata, the Lord reveals the secrets of action, devotion, meditation, and renunciation. Whatever our mental or emotional tendencies may be, we will inevitably awaken. These timeless verses offer mystical wisdom on how to live a virtuous life, as we seek victory.
Victory lives within. We need only conquer the worldly confusion of grief, fear, lust, and fury. The Bhagavad Gita offers divine guidance on how to overcome our sorrows of mind and realize the joy of divine bliss. This volume contains an English translation, transliteration, and Devanagari. A comprehensive introduction explores the scripture's cultural, historical, and psychological context. The book is an offering to the Lord who lives in your heart.
