The Bhagavad-Gita,”The Song of the Lord”, is probably the best known of all Indian writings, and Easwaran is clear, accessible from translation is the best-seller of the edition.The Gita opens spectacularly, with Prince Arjuna collapsing in anguish at the edge of a war that he does not want to fight.Arjuna lost his way on the battlefield of life, and turns to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, the Lord himself.Krishna responds to 700 sublime verses and instructions on life and death, love and work, and the nature of the soul.This book includes a vast and very readable introduction, which puts the Gita in a historical context, explains the key concepts, and highlights the universality of its teachings.Chapter introductions prepare the reader to the main topics and notes, a Sanskrit glossary and an index are included.Although the battlefield is a perfect backdrop, for Easwaran the subject’s Gita is the war inside, the struggle for self-control that every human being owes wages.Arjuna dilemma is very modern, and the Gita of the message remains relevant today as it was for ancient India.
