Product Description

Nilgiri Press

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.”
