Detailed Information:

THE BHAGAVAD GITA : THE SONG OF THE SUPREME
The Message Of The Bhagavad Gita In Simplified Form

The Bhagavad Gita is a world-scripture with a world message. It is not meant for India alone; it is a "Bible of Humanity".

The Gita has an answer to the problems and perplexities of the modern world. The problems of social, national and international reconstruction will not be solved without an appreciation of those deeper values of life, which the Gita shows, are the very structure of reality. A new Indian nation, a new social order, a new civilization must be built on the essential teachings of the Gita. The wisdom of the Gita is the hope of a new humanity.

Sadhu Vaswani, who was regarded by many as an "embodiment of the Gita", a "living Gita" and who was equally at home in the Eastern and Western traditions of thought, gives is in this book the teaching of the Gita in simple words.

In the Bhagavad Gita, simplicity is combined with wisdom. The essential teaching of the Bhagavad Gita has been overlaid by controversies which scholar and theologians may understand but not lovers of the simple life. In the present volume, the author has simplified the message of the Bhagavad Gita and related it to the experience and aspirations of the common man. "To the vast majority of men", he says, "life seems to be a meaningless muddle. Not many seem to realize that life, at its noblest, is a yatra, a pilgrimage to God: The Infinite is our true home".

A new renaissance of culture and man's spiritual life is humanity's urgent need. The Gita shows the way to a cultural and spiritual renaissance. The Gita stands for social justice for brotherhood of man, for fellowship of nations, for conquest of economic slavery, for creation of new life. The Gita is above all a dispensation of love and freedom.
