The Bhagavad Gita (With DVD): Book Description/Backcover
Includes DVD Talks on The Bhagavad Gita Watch Eknath Easwaran - warm, lively, inspiring - discuss timeless messages from The Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita, The Song of the Lord, is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Eknath Easwarans reliable, readable version has consistently been the bestselling translation. Easwarans introduction places the Gita in its historical setting and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Chapter introductions give clear explanations of key concepts, and notes and a glossary explain Sanskrit terms. The Bhagavad Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. But, as Easwaran points out, the Gita is not what it seems - its not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gitas subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage to live a life that is meaningful, fulfilling, and worthwhile.
