The Shri Guru Gita is an ancient set of Indian prayer mantras. The Sanskrit text has only been translated into English by fewer than five teachers, one of whom is Mark Griffin.

The daily recitation of the Shri Guru Gita reveals the mystical truths of human nature and the fast path to the pursuit of enlightenment. Named the "Guru Gita," which means "Song of the Guru," this text is the core section of 352 sutras of a larger ancient Indian text known as the Skanda Purana. These verses are literally a song in praise of the Guru, who is a human spiritual conduit through whom spiritual enlightenment is taught and attained. When the word Guru is used here, it is known to be more than an individual person. Rather, it is a universal principle, a catalyst for enlightenment like no other.

Mark Griffin has selected 108 of these verses for the use of serious seekers - those who are sincerely interested in spiritual training. This fresh, original translation from the Sanskrit is specifically designed for the contemporary seeker. It's important to note that the recitation is in English, as Mark feels that the meaning of these sutras is most important.

This 5.5" x 8.5" perfect-bound book is 174 pages, and contains the English verses in large print, so it is easy to read and recite. This book was used in the "Eat Pray Love" film as it was found to be the most authentic English translation of the prayers that transformed the author, Elizabeth Gilbert, on her journey to India. It also includes the Sanskrit Devanagari text, the Sanskrit transliteration and a guide on how to pronounce the Sanskrit transliteration plus Mark's full introduction and an in-depth 30 page glossary.
