In this companion to his best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita, Easwaran explores the essential themes of this much-loved Indian scripture. Placing the Gita in a modern context, Easwaran shows how this classic text sheds light on the nature of reality, the illusion of separateness, the search for identity, and the meaning of yoga. The key message of the Gita is how to resolve our conflicts and live in harmony with the deep unity of life, through the principles of yoga and the practice of meditation. Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition and learned Sanskrit from an early age. A foremost translator and interpreter of the Gita, he taught classes on it for forty years, while living out the principles of the Gita in the midst of a busy family and community life. In the Gita, Sri Krishna, the Lord, doesn’t tell the warrior prince Arjuna what to do: he shows Arjuna his choices and then leaves it to Arjuna to decide. Easwaran, too, shows us clearly how these teachings still apply to us – and how, like Arjuna, we must take courage and act wisely if we want our world to thrive.

This book is based on the truth and guides one to take on the path of truth, which alone can give one the salvation from the vicious circle of Birth and death. I have tried my level best to summarise the divine knowledge or the essence of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita which was preached by the supreme lord Shree Krishna to Arjuna on the battle field of Kurukshetra. Also, I have included all the knowledge that I have gained over the years by attending various Satsangs and Bhagavad Kathas by the grace of my Sadgurudev/Spiritual master and the lord Shree Krishna. In this age of kali or ignorance, when people are running after material desires and have no time to read our religious texts,this short book can show them the right direction treading upon which they can realize the truth or can actually know the true purpose of their existence.
Ramana Maharshi sprach einmal mit einem Gelehrten über die Bhagavad Gita. Einer seiner Devotees meinte, dass es unmöglich sei, sich alle 700 Verse zu merken, und fragte, ob es nicht einen Vers gäbe, den man sich als Essenz der Gita merken könne. Ramana wies auf Kapitel X, Vers 20 hin: „Ich bin das Selbst, o Gudakesa, das im Herzen aller Lebewesen wohnt. Ich bin der Anfang, die Mitte und auch das Ende aller Lebewesen.“ Später wählte er 42 Verse aus der Bhagavad Gita aus und ordnete sie neu.
