The Bhagavad Gita According to Gandhi A Sloka by sloka interpretation of one of the world's most enduring and influential spritual texts by one of the truly great figures of the twentieth century.
Unlike other interpretations, Gandhi's commentary is direct and to the point, not offering an opinion on the meaning of the text, but fleshing out the message, often relating its to his own extraordinary experiences. It is not a manual of dos and don'ts; rather it is a guide to the challenges we all face in our lives. It expounds the profound idea that nothing done in the path of truth is ever lost, there is no harm,no fear in following it.
Gandhi's Gita is also a call to detached service, a gospel of selfless action. It is, in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, 'an empire of thought' that everyone can benefit from regardless of religion, beliefs or background.
The Bhagavad Gita is not a description of war between cousins, but between two natures in us- The Goods and the evil. It is a work which persons belonging to all faiths can read. It teaches nothing but pure ethics. With every age its important words carry a new meaning.
The Bhagavad Gita is a big knowledge feast, it is the very amrita of knowledge. For those who read the gita wit faith, it is like the fabled wish-yielding tree.
