Description

The Bhagavad Gita, one of India's most influential scriptures, opens with the warrior-prince Arjuna frozen in indecision on the battlefield. He turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. For Easwaran, Arjuna's dilemma represents our own human condition: torn between opposing forces and confused about how to live.

In this completely new book from the author of the best-selling translation of the Gita, Easwaran gives his clear, compelling explanation of its teachings. Based on talks with close students towards the end of his life, this publication is the culmination of forty years of teaching the Gita in the West.

The Gita needs an interpreter of Easwaran's scholarship and experience to point out the meaning behind the words. He highlights the key themes, explains the terminology, and shares his favorite verses. He also reveals the Gita's startling insights into the problems threatening our modern civilization. Like the warrior-prince Arjuna, we must each make wise choices, and in this modern, original interpretation Easwaran shows how the Gita points a way forward for us - both as individuals and in our global society today.

Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...

"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us. He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with that all-important business contact."
