Beschreibung

"It is impossible to get to the heart of those classics unless you live them, and [Easwaran] did live them. My admiration of the man and his works is boundless." - Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions, reviewing Easwaran's translation, The Bhagavad Gita

In this verse-by-verse commentary on India's most famous scripture, Eknath Easwaran, author of the best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita, interprets the Gita's wisdom for modern readers. With everyday stories and touches of humor he shows how this ancient text sheds light on every aspect of our lives. In later chapters he explains how the Gita's insights can be applied to address the social, economic, and environmental problems threatening our world today.

The Bhagavad Gita is set on the battlefield of an apocalyptic war between good and evil. Faced with a dire moral dilemma, the warrior prince Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life.

Easwaran presents Arjuna's crisis as acutely modern. The Gita's battlefield is the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage. Arjuna represents each of us, and Sri Krishna is the Lord, showing us the path to peace and meaning.

The second volume in this three-part series covers chapters 7-12 of the Gita. These chapters go beyond the individual Self to explore the Supreme Reality underlying all creation. Easwaran builds a bridge across the seeming divide between scientific knowledge and spiritual wisdom, and explains how the concept of the unity of life can help us in all our relationships.

Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999) brings to this volume a rare combination of credentials: knowledge of Sanskrit, an intuitive understanding of his Hindu legacy, and a mastery of English. More than two million copies of his books are in print, including his best-selling translations of the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads.
Born in India, Easwaran was a professor of English literature at a leading Indian university when he came to the United States in 1959 on the Fulbright exchange program. He founded the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in 1961 and gave talks on the Indian classics, world mysticism, meditation, and spiritual living for 40 years. His meditation class at UC Berkeley in 1968 was the first accredited course on meditation at any major university.
Easwaran lived what he taught, giving him lasting appeal as a spiritual author and teacher of deep insight and warmth.
