9781586380199: The Bhagavad Gita, 2nd Edition

Easwaran’s best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita is reliable, readable, and profound. His 55-page introduction places the Gita in its historical context, presents key concepts, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. This edition includes chapter introductions, notes and a Sanskrit glossary.

Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. He is a gifted teacher and an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism. 

The 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. Yet 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 if he or she is to emerge from life victorious.”

From the Publisher:

In this translation, the Bhagavad Gita stands out as a book of choices direct, practical, universal. Previously archaic and inaccessible, this ancient scripture is now treated afresh, showing its relevance to our times. The Bhagavad Gita portrays the meeting of man and God. On the morning of battle, facing the forces of greed, anger, and hatred, the legendary prince Arjuna loses his nerve and refuses to fight. His friend Krishna, who represents the Lord within knows better: "Your very nature will drive you to fight." The Gita, according to Easwaran, "distills the loftiest truths of India's ancient wisdom into simple, memorable poetry that haunts the mind and informs the affairs of everyday life."

From the Back Cover:

"No one in modern times is more qualified - no, make that 'as qualified' - to translate the epochal Classics of Indian Spirituality than Eknath Easwaran. And the reason is clear. It is impossible to get to the heart of these classics unless you live them, and he did live them. My admiration of the man and his works is boundless." Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions

Descripción Nilgiri Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Second Edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Bhagavad Gita, The Song of the Lord, is probably the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Easwaran s clear, accessible translation is the best-selling edition. The Gita opens dramatically, with prince Arjuna collapsing in anguish on the brink of a war that he doesn t want to fight. Arjuna has lost his way on the battlefield of life, and turns to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, the Lord himself. Krishna replies in 700 verses of sublime instruction on living and dying, loving and working, and the nature of the soul. This book includes an extensive and very readable introduction, which places the Gita in its historical setting, explains the key concepts, and brings out the universality of its teachings. Individual chapter introductions prepare the reader for the main themes, and notes, a Sanskrit glossary, and an index are included. Although the battlefield is a perfect backdrop, for Easwaran the Gita s subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage. Arjuna s dilemma is acutely modern, and the Gita s message remains as relevant for us now as it was for ancient India. Nº de ref. de la librería AA99781586380199
