Given to Rishi Agastya by Lord Hayagriva certainly,
Hayagriva an incarnation of Lord Vishnu does be,
He who the storehouse of complete knowledge be.
Agastya, sad with ignorant, pleasure seekers be,
Worshipped Devi Kamakshi - revered Devi Shakti,
Pleading for a solution to uplift masses clearly,
Hayagriva appeared, advised him, worship Devi.
Lalita Sahasranama stotra the best way does be,
To attain both spiritual, material upliftment truly,
Conveyed by sage Vyasya Maharishi certainly,
By vagdevatas under Laita's direction definitely.
Other Sahasranamas composed by Vyasa Maharishi,
Hayagriva has taught thousand Lalita names holy,
Lalita Sahasranama also Rahasya Nama Sahasra be,
Phala Stuti the effect of chanting it unquestionably.

Arjuna’s struggle in the Bhagavad Gita is acutely modern. He has lost his way on the battlefield of life and turns to find the path again by asking direct, uncompromising questions of his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, the Lord himself. Krishna replies in 700 verses of sublime instruction on living and dying, loving and working, and the nature of the soul.
Easwaran shows the Gita’s relevance to us today as we strive, like Arjuna, to do what is right.
“No one in modern times is more qualified – no, make that ‘as qualified’ – to translate the epochal Classics of Indian Spirituality than Eknath Easwaran. And the reason is clear. It is impossible to get to the heart of those classics unless you live them, and he did live them. My admiration of the man and his works is boundless.” – Huston Smith, author of The World’s Religions.
