About This Book

Eknath Easwaran points out, the Gita is not what it seems -it's not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. "The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gita's 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. The Bhagavad Gita, 'The Song of the Lord,' is the best known of all the Indian scriptures and Eknath Easwaran's reliable, readable version has consistently been the bestselling translation. 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. Easwaran's 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.
