Paths to God Book Review:

For centuries, readers have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths. As profound and powerful as this classic text has been for generations of seekers, integrating its lessons into the ordinary patterns of our lives can ultimately seem beyond our reach. Now, in a fascinating series of reflections, anecdotes, stories, and exercises, Ram Dass gives us a unique and accessible road map for experiencing divinity in everyday life. In the engaging, conversational style that has made his teachings so popular for decades, Ram Dass traces our journey of consciousness as it is reflected in one of Hinduism’s most sacred texts. The Gita teaches a system of yogas, or “paths for coming to union with God.” In Paths to God, Ram Dass brings the heart of that system to light for a Western audience and translates the Gita’s principles into the manual for living the yoga of contemporary life. While being a guide to the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, Paths to God is also a template for expanding our definition of ourselves and allowing us to appreciate a new level of meaning in our lives.

Living the Bhagavad Gita Book Review:

‘Armed with yoga, stand and fight’ In this startlingly original book, Braja Sorensen combines the teachings of Sri Krishna and the sage Patanjali to emphasize the real purpose of yoga: it is a way of life, and its goal is the union with the Divine. It is yoga, through progressive stages of inner growth, that Krishna is actually teaching Arjuna on the battlefield as he addresses the prince’s fears, doubts and dilemmas. And the questions that Arjuna asks Krishna are as relevant and pressing for the modern reader as they were centuries ago: Why am I suffering? How do I find peace within? How do I comprehend the difference between right and wrong? Who am I, and how do I understand myself? What is the purpose of life? Braja Sorensen presents a lucid analysis of the multiple meanings of the word ‘yoga’ that Krishna teaches in the Bhagavad Gita, for its every verse is about yoga. The yogic journey is a process of training and refining the mind, senses and emotions, until the very consciousness is altered and ready to meet the Divine. Patanjali, meanwhile, explains the link between the body, mind and soul, and how the practice of yoga affects each. Living the Bhagavad Gita brings to you the life-changing qualities that Krishna taught, and shows you how the Bhagavad Gita is the finest guide to understanding life, love and relationships, the body, mind and senses, and the nature of the soul.

Essence of the Bhagavad Gita Book Review:

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.

The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living Volume 1 Book Review:

A comprehensive manual for living a spiritual life, based on a verse-by-verse commentary on India’s timeless scripture – from the author of its best-selling translation. This ebook includes all three volumes in this series. The Bhagavad Gita is set on the battlefield of an apocalyptic war between good and evil. Faced with a dire moral dilemma, the warrior prince Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Easwaran points out that Arjuna’s crisis is acutely modern. The Gita’s battlefield is the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage. Arjuna represents each of us, and Sri Krishna is the Lord, instructing us in eighteen chapters of lofty wisdom as we face the social, environmental, and global challenges that threaten our world today. Easwaran is a spiritual teacher and author of deep insight and warmth. His verse-by-verse commentary interprets the Gita’s teachings for modern readers, explaining the Sanskrit concepts and philosophy and applying them with practicality, wisdom, and humor to every aspect of our work, our relationships, and our lives. With everyday anecdotes, stories, and examples, he shows that the changes we long to see in the world start with the transformation of our own consciousness. The practical exercises recommended by Easwaran to achieve transformation are part of a spiritual program he developed for his own life. They are accessible to people from all backgrounds and cultures. Urging us to adopt a higher image of the human being, he assures us that peace and unity are within reach. Each volume of this series covers six chapters of the Gita. Each may be read on its own, but all three volumes together form an in-depth, verse-by-verse explanation of this ancient scripture and its relevance today. Included are instructions in Easwaran's universal eight-point program of passage meditation. Volume 1: The first six chapters of the Gita explore the concept of the innermost Self and source of wisdom in each of us. Easwaran explains how we can begin to transform ourselves, even as householders engaged in busy lives. Volume 2: The next six chapters of the Gita go beyond the individual Self to explore the Supreme Reality underlying all creation. Easwaran builds a bridge across the seeming divide between scientific knowledge and spiritual wisdom, and explains how the concept of the unity of life can help us in all our relationships. Volume 3: The final six chapters put forth an urgent appeal for us to begin to see that all of us are one – to make the connection between the Self within and the Reality underlying all creation. Global in scope, the emphasis is on what we can do to make a difference to heal our environment and establish peace in the world. Easwaran’s commentary is for all students of the Gita, whatever their background, and for anyone who is trying to find a path to wisdom, love, and kindness in themselves and our troubled world. Written as an authoritative, accessible guide to a much-loved scripture, it is a handbook for finding peace and clarity within. This second edition incorporates revisions made across all three volumes following the author’s final instructions.

Bhagavad Gita Essentials Book Review:

Have you ever noticed that, for the mind, questions never cease? Fortunately, this second volume in the ‘JUST LOVE: Questions & Answers’ series contains 200 answers to questions posed to Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda between 2010 and 2013. His answers here cover a wide variety of topics, but most of all, He describes how to handle the mind. Paramahamsa Vishwananda says that, on the spiritual path, the mind can either be our best friend or our worst enemy. That’s why this book focuses particularly on how to overcome the obstacles that the mind places between us and the goal of Life itself: Unconditional Divine Love. This is the only kind of love that will truly fulfill us, and Guruji’s wisdom, recommendations, and spiritual practices all help us to transcend the limits the mind imposes.

Finding Meaning in Life with the Bhagavad Gita Book Review:

Bhagavad Gita is one of the world oldest and most influential spiritual text. It is in the form of a dialogue between prince Arjuna and Krishna, on the great battlefield of Kurukshetra. Arjuna is filled with despair about the violence and death the imminent war will cause and is also grappling with other moral dilemnas. The Krishna-Arjuna dialogues cover a broad range of topics, touching upon ethical concerns and philosophical issues that go far beyond the war that is about to take place. In this beautifully illustrated book, Neema Majmudar, Nandini Mirani and Saloni Jhaveri give us profound insights into the teachings of Lord Krishna by translating, analysing and explaining forty five key verses of the Gita especially chosen for their logic, wisdom and practicality. 'Finding Meaning in Life with the Bhagavad Gita' will enable us to address the larger challenges in life that we have little control over, such as pandemics, wars, and economic crisis, as well as concerns which are unique to each one of us-- the search for meaning in our daily existence, success in our careers, happiness in our personal lives, and also our longing for personal fulfillment. Neema Majmudar has a Master's degree in International Affairs from the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), Columbia University, New York. She has studied the Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Sanskrit with Swami Dayananda Saraswati, a great Vedanta scholar and visionary. She worked for almost twenty years at the United Nations before becoming a full time teacher of Vedanta and the Gita. Neema and her husband, Surya Tahora, conduct regular workshops and retreats on Vedanta. Nandini Mirani has an MBA in finance from Boston University. She serves as an active trustee of the non-profit Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital (MPUH), Gujarat, India. Saloni Jhaveri has an AB in economics from Barnard College. She co-founded and ran a software company for twenty two years. She has been involved with the TImes Litfest as a curator for children's events.

Godsong Book Review:

A fresh, strikingly immediate and elegant verse translation of the classic, with an introduction and helpful guides to each section, by the rising American poet. Born in the United States into a secularized Hindu family, Amit Majmudar puzzled over the many religious traditions on offer, and found that the Bhagavad Gita had much to teach him with its "song of multiplicities." Chief among them is that "its own assertions aren't as important as the relationships between its characters . . . The Gita imagined a relationship in which the soul and God are equals"; it is, he believes, "the greatest poem of friendship . . . in any language." His verse translation captures the many tones and strategies Krishna uses with Arjuna--strict and berating, detached and philosophical, tender and personable. "Listening guides" to each section follow the main text, and expand in accessible terms on the text and what is happening between the lines. Godsong is an instant classic in the field, from a poet of skill, fine intellect, and--perhaps most important--devotion.
