Additional Information

The Bhagavad Gita, "The Song of the Lord", is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Easwaran's reliable and accessible version has consistently been the best-selling translation. Easwaran's introduction places the Gita in its historical setting and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Chapter introductions give clear explanations of key concepts in that chapter. To listen to the scripture without the introductions, listeners should start at track 044. 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. But 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" to live a life that is meaningful, fulfilling, and worthwhile. This audio recording is a complete and unabridged reading of Eknath Easwaran's book The Bhagavad Gita.

Music composed by Jan She.

“Be fearless and pure; never waver in your determination or your dedication to the spiritual life. Give freely. Be self-controlled, sincere, truthful, loving, and full of the desire to serve… Learn to be detached and to take joy in renunciation. Do not get angry or harm any living creature, but be compassionate and gentle; show good will to all. Cultivate vigor, patience, will, purity; avoid malice and pride. Then, you will achieve your destiny.”

~ Krishna from The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita is incredible.

A principal book of Hinduism, inspiration to Gandhi and overall “must-read” for any big thinking seeker, if you haven’t read it yet, I *highly* recommend you add it to your list.

The Bhagavad Gita is believed to have been written between the 5th and 2nd centuries BCE and its 700 verses are part of the longer Mahabharata.

I was absolutely mesmerized by The Bhagavad Gita. The poem was written thousands of years before Christ yet it expresses a well developed and empathic spiritual philosophy. Under my awe, I felt cheated. Why was I not expose to this type of literature as a child? Why was I taught to view everything the world didn't really exist before 1776?
I bought the Gita along with the Dhammapada on amazon. I also have the other book in the series (Upanishads). It has been a great experience for me to study these books and use them as a guide for daily living.

Eknath Easwaran's introduction to the concepts of Hinduism is outstanding. The description of Jnana Yoga (path of knowledge), Bhakti Yoga (path of devotion) and Karma Yoga(path of selfless action) is lucid and inspires one to practice. I have combined my readings with regular meditation - Contemplation on the verses, how to apply them and applying effort towards practicing them in your life makes your life meaningful. For readers who are new to Hindu/Buddhist concepts of karma and reincarnation , the introduction has a wealth of information. The description of the three gunas (Tamas, Rajas, Sattva) that influence our personality is exemplary. Having a little bit of a background in Sanskrit, I can draw parallels between 'Sattva guna' and the popular Buddhist term... Read more
