Arjuna asks questions that I think a lot of us do end up asking. The responses and Arjuna's followup questions are quite inspirational. Having Arjuna as a soldier makes things even more interesting. The soldier must deal with the moral questions of a job which involves killing.
I don't know whether I found this easier to read because I'd already learned a lot about the philosophy of yoga before I read it. A lot of yoga texts refer back to this, and for a yogi I think it is great to go back to the beginning and the original meanings of why we're doing all this. Eknath's text does introduce the concepts incredibly well, so the book should be able to stand out on its own without previous knowledge.
It also puts the different paths into perspective. Eknath's discussion covers other philosophies including Christianity in relation to this and allows you to see how much they all have in common.
I am looking to buy other versions now to understand this great work.
Just reading 2 pages from the beginning gives one a fresh outlook. Cannot recommend enough. Buy one today.
No doubt this is one of religions best kept secrets. Stephen Hawking recently pronounced philosophy dead. Well he didn't come across the Gita!
Philosophy isn't dead and neither is the Spirit, on the contrary, she is only hidden away! I opened this book and there she was!!
I have just finished reading it, you see, and what I have just read is, if not genius, then a verisimilitude of genius!
The Gita is the only book I have ever read that explains reincarnation! Seriously, why isn't it more well known? Science won't get us there, philosophy is also a contender.
Eknath Easwaran's translation and commentary is excellent and lodges the 3000 years old concepts with our modern science. It is all in here and so the coming
critique of science will be a mind bender and will have Richard Dawkins ducking for cover!
They should be teaching this at school! Epichol and an epiphany are strong enough words, so ill use them!
A lovely read!
By far the best 'holy' text I have read. Not one single hint at aggression or intolerance, just sound advice for anyone trying to understand 'the distinctly other' and incorporate it into their lives.
