The Self-A Biological Introduction to The BHAGAVAD-GITA (Vol-1)
The Resplendent Wisdom
The deepest studies of the phenomenon of Man and his destiny presented millenniums ago in the Bhagavad-Gita assume prime importance today when man stands at a bifurcation point of history, either to a headlong fall to total destruction or an evolutionary advancement to the freedom of a greater civilization. Sri Krishna, our Eternal Companion, our Self, invites us to sit in the chariot beside Arjuna. We hear the tumultuous sounds of drums, conches, the war cry, and as the chariot moves on, we slowly realize that we are being conveyed to an entirely different world, a world within us - of reassurance, inspiration and peace bequeathed by a profound knowledge about ourselves and our relation with the universe.
The book contains a modern assessment of the Bhagavad-Gita as a super biological text of human evolution, higher possibilities and Liberation. A book that unravels the mystery of existence, the Bhagavad-Gita is the beloved text of all who seek to unravel the mystery of existence. This volume covers the first six chapters up to DhyanaYoga – Self-realization through Meditation.
This elegant and illustrated volume of 346 pages is a study of the first six chapters, up to the Dhyana-yoga, the Yoga of Meditation. These chapters deal with the basic features of the whole perennial philosophy. There will be two more volumes of six chapters each, which amplify the basic teaching in the first volume. These volumes will be brought in the near future and the reader may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
