Overview

Prominent perennial classics, like the Odyssey and the Mahabharata, inspire us to understand the significance of life beyond the everyday world. Our spirit needs that kind of nourishment. To that task, Prem Prakash has chosen the beloved Bhagavad Gita and transformed its significant value for the third millennium. In these pages he explains the mythical power of the story and portrays the practical power of the dialogue between Lord Krishna and the warrior Arjuna. This narrative is universal yoga, the everlasting story of ourselves. It looks at our inner conflicts as well as our public opportunities, showing us how to content with life and its obligations while achieving, at the same time, our ultimate destiny.
