The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living: Commentary, Translation, and Sanskrit Text (Volume 1)by Eknath Easwaran
Synopses & Reviews
"This volume originally appeared in a hardcover edition ... under the title The Bhagavad Gita for daily living, chapters 1 through 6, published by the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation."--T.p. verso.
The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Volume 1: The End of Sorrow
Eknath Easwaran is a foremost translator and interpreter of the much-loved
Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. He liked to say that his verse-by-verse
commentary grew like a tree issuing directly from his life, which was so rooted
in the Gita that he found a deep understanding of its teachings in the most
everyday experiences sharing a treat with young children, walking with friends
down a busy street, or watching a mime in San Franciscos Union Square.
Easwaran translates each verse, relates it to our modern lives through stories
and anecdotes, and gives us spiritual exercises that we can use every day.
This first volume in a three-volume set covers chapters 16 of the Gita, and
concentrates on the individual: the nature of our innermost Self, how it can be
discovered in the depths of consciousness, and how this discovery transforms
daily life. The introduction includes instructions in Easwarans universal method
of passage meditation.
