When I first studied Bhagavad Gita I found it difficult to understand and later found contradictions in commentaries of different authors. Sanskrit language is very flexible and different authors of different sects have tried to bend Bhagavad Gita according to their own tradition. I do not claim that I am the only authority to comment on Gita but in this book I have tried to study the verses of Gita according to my spiritual experience. I hope readers will find this study of Gita as easy to understand and yet expressing the right meaning. This study does not oppose any other commentary but at the same time tries not to contaminate Bhagavad Gita according to any sect. - Saurabh

In this companion to his best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita, Easwaran explores the essential themes of this much-loved Indian scripture.
Placing the Gita in a modern context, Easwaran shows how this classic text sheds light on the nature of reality, the illusion of separateness, the search for identity, and the meaning of yoga. The key message of the Gita is how to resolve our conflicts and live in harmony with the deep unity of life, through the principles of yoga and the practice of meditation.
Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition and learned Sanskrit from an early age. A foremost translator and interpreter of the Gita, he taught classes on it for forty years, while living out the principles of the Gita in the midst of a busy family and community life.
In the Gita, Sri Krishna, the Lord, doesn’t tell the warrior prince Arjuna what to do: he shows Arjuna his choices and then leaves it to Arjuna to decide. Easwaran, too, shows us clearly how these teachings still apply to us – and how, like Arjuna, we must take courage and act wisely if we want our world to thrive.
