Do you know any text older than Vedas?

How were Vedas preserved for thousands of years when there were no tape recorders?

Christianity came with Jesus. Islam came with Muhammad. Did Hinduism come with Ram or Krishna?

Who created Vedas?

Are Vedas divine?

Do Vedas allow alcohol consumption – Soma?

Do Vedas ask to kill atheists or non-believers?

Are Vedas corrupted?

Do Vedas have a history like Bible and Quran?

Are Vedas extinct?

…and 100+ such questions and allegations on Hinduism in general and Vedas, in particular, have been answered in this book.

This book serves as a spiritual guide for truth-seekers and as a hammer for crooks. It crushes anti-Hindu arguments of violent cults dreaming of conquering India by hook or crook. It shuts mouths of biased Western Indologists and pseudo-liberal anti-Hindu left lobby in India on the matters of Hinduism. This book along with few others from the author have shifted whole discourse on Hinduism from ‘defending’ position to ‘dominating’ one.

A must read book for every self-respecting Hindu and Non-Hindu alike!

The Bhagavad Gita is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Eknath Easwaran’s best-selling translation is reliable, readable, and profound.

Easwaran's 55-page introduction places the Bhagavad Gita in its historical setting, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Chapter introductions clarify key concepts, and notes and a glossary explain Sanskrit terms.

Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, and learned Sanskrit from a young age. He was a professor of English literature before coming to the West on a Fulbright scholarship. A gifted teacher, he is recognized as an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism.

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. Yet, as 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 if he or she is to emerge from life victorious.”

 

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.
