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.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
