Gita Wisdom


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

It is dawn, just before the start of an epic war. Two armies comprising nearly four million soldiers fill a vast battlefield. Warrior elephants – their armored tusks glistening in the sunlight – trumpet and stomp the ground. Horses tethered to goldplated chariots pull at their reins, anxious for the attack. Soldiers beat drums, rattle spears, ready bows and arrows. Between the two armies, noble prince Arjuna looks out from his chariot and envisions the destruction to come. This war is a last chance for his family to regain the kingdom stolen from them fourteen years before by ruthless cousins. Yet, in these final moments, he falters. He turns to his friend and mentor Krishna, who serves as Arjuna’s charioteer, and confesses to feelings of horror over the lives that will be lost and shame over his participation. What follows is a twohour dialogue, known as the Bhagavad Gita, or “Song of the Supreme Person,” one of the world’s most renowned testimonies to the transformative power of love. In this highly readable introduction to India’s classic yoga text, scholarpractitioner Joshua M. Greene has created a bridge between the Gita’s millennial wisdom and the world we know. Through crisp renderings of verses and insightful commentary, the author sheds a bright light on profound concepts. In the tradition of theologians writing for uninitiated readers, he has provided a compulsively readable edition of the Gita, one that lures readers into the very human dimension of its sacred teachings. JOSHUA M. GREENE received his Masters Degree from Hofstra University and has been teaching Bhagvad Gita for the past twenty years. He is a popular lecturer, Emmy Awardnominated filmmaker, and author of numerous books on paths to enlightenment. In 1982, after spending thirteen years in Hindu ashrams, he returned to the United States and became a communications consultant specializing in peace initiatives. In 2000, he served as Director of Strategic Planning for the United Nations Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders. Greene teaches at Hofstra University and at Jivamukti School in New York.

Essential Wisdom Of The Bhagavad Gita


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Bhagavad Gita, the classic spiritual text more than five thousand years old, has often been called India's greatest contribution to the world. In these pages, Jack Hawley presents the essence of the Gita's teachings in a format accessible to modern readers. The book is organized into chapters that address five important questions spiritual seekers have been grappling with for millennia: Who am I? Why am I here? Who, or what, is the Divinity many call “God”? What is my relationship to that Divinity? Is it even possible to live a spiritual life, and if so, how? Each chapter begins with an introduction by Jack Hawley. The teachings from the Gita follow, arranged under headings relevant to today's seekers, such as “Being the Real You,” “Seeing Divinity in Ordinary Humans,” and “Finding Happiness.” The ancient wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita lives on, helping us today as it has helped countless millions of people through the ages.

Wisdom Of The Gita


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

All the literature of the world is puny and insignificant in front of the Bhagwat Gita- once remarked the famous American writer and philosopher, H.D.Thoreau. This book is an outcome of a deep study of the Gita over a long period and broadly covers the main teachings enshrined in the scripture. In fact,Gita is not merely a holy book meant for reverence and ritual worship, but it is a fountain spring of true knowledge and wisdom and can be considered as a manual for righteous living. This small book acquaints the readers with the fundamentals of life, which include the human body and the soul, pleasure and pain, God and nature, good and evil, the different qualities inherent in human beings, yoga, meditation, desires and similar other aspects. The book has been specially designed for the busy man of the present day, who has no time to read voluminous titles! Some Glimpses: *The Goal of Life: The man who remains same in pain and pleasure, and who is wise makes himself fit for eternal life. *The Charity given as a matter of duty and without expectation of return, to the right and deserving person, at the right time and place is Satvik. *Whatsoever makes the unwavering and unsteady mind wander away, let him restrain and bring it back to the control of the self alone. *A true devotee is one who has no ill-will to any being, who is friendly and compassionate, free from egoism and self sense, even-minded in pain and pleasure, and patient.

The Wisdom Teachings Of The Bhagavad Gita


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Bhagavad Gita ("The Song of God") is one of the world's most revered spiritual works due to its narrative approach, dispensing of practical guidance, and synthesis of non-dual wisdom teachings. However, the Bhagavad Gita is much more than an exemplar of ancient Hindu scripture, it's a gift to humanity in the same way a comprehensive 700-verse compendium on modern medicine would be. It is the essence of the Vedas, an expounder of knowledge and a remedy for human sorrow. In The Wisdom Teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, the author takes a cue from traditional Advaita Vedanta to provide commentary on the Gita in a way that helps unlock the teaching in clear, modern and practical terms. As a result, the reader is offered the original intent and utility of the Gita as a guide for living a life free of suffering.
