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

Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India's spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries.
In translating the Gita, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has remained loyal to the intended meaning of Krishna's words, and thus he has unlocked all the secrets of the ancient knowledge of the Gita and placed them before us as an exciting opportunity for self-improvement and spiritual fulfillment.
The Gita is a conversation between Krishna and His dear friend Arjuna. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of his life? Where is he going after death?
In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path.
When we look at Hinduism and Christianity we find totally different ideologies with different doctrines and different gods. But when I studied Bible, I found striking similarities between the teachings of Jesus Christ and Hinduism. In this book I have tried to show those similarities by putting the teachings of Jesus and Krishna together. It is not my intention to show Jesus as a Hindu Guru, I don’t know if He had visited India or not. I have just tried to show that the Consciousness of humanity is same everywhere and prophets of different time and place have expressed the same reality about it. - Saurabh
