ABOUT THIS BOOK
The Bhagavad Gita, popularly known as the Gita, is the ‘Sacred Song of God’. In its seven hundred shlokas, the ecstatic joy of devotion, importance of equanimity and the relationship of man with God are described in the most precise poetic language.
The Gita, recited by Krishna to Arjuna as an exhortation while war rages around them, subtly raises the question of whether action or renunciation of action is better, and concludes that the path of action (Karmayoga) is better. At the end, Arjuna declares that his delusions have been destroyed and doubts dispelled, and he is convinced to carry out his duty and follow the path of action.
The message of the Gita is as relevant to the present-day Kurukshetra of daily challenges and opportunities as it was for Arjuna in the great war of the Mahabharata. Art of Life: Timeless Wisdom from the Gita offers a clear understanding of the profound wisdom contained in the Bhagavad Gita, in simple and lucid language.
