The Gita for the Twenty-First Century
The Gita for the Twenty-First Century
Description
From the Back of the Book

This latest version of Bhagavad-Gita explains how the message of social service has been derived from this universal scripture. Written in a simple style, it will enable common people to obtain a clear understanding of the teachings of the Gita so that they can work efficiently for the good of the society.

Keeping in mind the inter-connected nature of the various chapters of the Gita, ample cross-references are given in this book to help the readers identify the main points of this scripture's basic message. Furthermore, a ten-point summary of this message is also made an integral part of the last chapter, in response to the feedback received from readers who had gone through an earlier draft of this book.

Dr. Satya P. Agarwal is a Social Scientist. His academic honours include five gold medals and numerous merit scholarships and research fellowships at various universities.

The Governor of the State of Maryland conferred upon him " The Governor's Citation", in recognition of his pioneering books as also his contribution to social service.

He is author of several books besides the present one which are widely acclaimed and appreciated by the discerning readers.

Other honours conferred on him include: (i) Kunti Goyal International Award (ii) Special Award of Manas Sangam and (iii) International Tulasi Award.
