Description

Foreword

 

I needn't mention that the sacred Gita is a quarry, long, broad and deep with gems the value of which cannot be estimated in any way, Dig deeper, cut sideways and take out the material of inestimable value but rarely people reach at the Core, the purport, and the message it has From the very early daye it has been commented upon, but the people, the devotees, finding them incompetent ones to deliver the goods went on writing more and more books, the commentaries. Viewing a few of them, following the same line only with voluminous introductions. explanation to verses, but few referring to previous or later verses, all in the Gita to stress the idea of anyone more clear with a' her examples, each verse being commented upon separately does not, make cleat the meaning or the aim.

 

This one is to follow a new course having the whole of the Gita-picture in the mind. At many places later verses are cited as examples to drive home the idea of any verse or the other way the later verses are explained with reference to the earlier ones

 

The commentator is not a student or a learner of the Gita He, should have the Gita as a whole in his mind to show that he has caught at the heart of the Gita. In XV 1, 2 verses have been locked up in a round-about way though they are in a way controversial in expression.

 

Now as far as possible I have stuck up to the novel method citing later stanzas far earlier ones and citing earlier ones for the later ones to make the meaning easy of comprehension and to show that it is all from Bhagavan Himself.

 

Introduction

 

In preparing this book I have not copied out from anyone of the existing commentaries. Earlier say form 1939 I had been reading the text with a small English translation. For a time I put it off. When I began eading it in 1975 I had to deliberate more and make marginai notes, a word or two at each 'place to note the difference in the interpretation And from that year till date I had occassions to give lectures on the Gita for a day (an hour) during the Ashtami Festival at the Vaikom Sree Siva Temple. I think they liked my lectures. So they called me again and again. On occassions more thann eleve I openly told that the Gita is my special subject. I don't mention the topics I had dealt with.

 

Whenever I get a chance to meet an M· A· in Sanskrit or a stauncn devotee I talk to him about select stanzas (Verses) in the Gita. After a little elucidation they soon become believers in my point of view, that, being substantiated on safer grounds. Hence I was rather prompted to bring out this book which I hope will make the devotees ponder over.

 

I have referred to many a commentary of the Gita both voluminous (with many quotaions) and smaller ones. All follow the same line only with a difference in the expression.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
