Overview

The inner voice of your soul guides your ultimate journey...

The Gita is one of the world’s most trusted, timeless guides for happiness, meditation, spiritual personal-growth and transformation. One which is ever so relevant today. Beethoven, Jung, Leonard Cohen, Gandhi – these and so many others of the world’s most brilliant scientists, creative-minds and spiritual-teachers, found the Gita a source of Wisdom and inspiration.

Your happiness does not depend on any teacher, guru or religion. Gita’s still, clear voice – echoes the inner voice of your soul, guiding you on an inner-journey that will unleash your full potential. Empowering you to do good in the world, and to be transformed in the process. To change the world around you, by first changing the world within.

This new poetic translation recreates, for the first time, Gita’s mesmerizing melodiousness, letting you tap its intuitive Wisdom. It is also the first translation that speaks directly to men and women alike.

Isaac Bentwich M.D. is a longtime practitioner and teacher of Yoga and Meditation. He is also a Medical Doctor and scientist, who has founded three life-science technology companies, leading revolutions in medicine, genomics, and environment conservation. His work is featured in top-tier scientific and business publications.

In genomics, Dr. Bentwich and his colleagues analyzed the human genome, leading to a landmark discovery of hundreds of novel genes, based on which they delivered novel diagnostic tests, for patients of cancer and other diseases. In conservation, Dr. Bentwich and his team de- veloped an agricultural technology that allows farmers to grow more crop using less water and other resources.

Dr. Bentwich received his Medical Doctor degree from Ben Gurion University, in Israel in 1989. He is also trained in Ayurvedic medicine, and in Yoga therapy.

The vision and innovations that underly each of the companies he founded and led, came through months of silent meditation retreats, in the Galilee and at the foothills of the Himalayas.
His work on this translation of the Gita has spanned twelve years.

Dr. Bentwich has also founded and initially funded Harmonia, a non-profit organization that strives to facilitate inner-growth, through harmony of body, mind and spirit. It works to make broadly available Wisdom teachings of different traditions, with an emphasis on adapting and making these relevant and accessible to contemporary seekers. For those in need, Harmonia strives to provide these teachings freely or significantly subsidized. Its activities include book publication (through Harmonia Publications), online and in-person workshops, and meditation training for school-kids.
