Realization of the Supreme Self: The Bhagavad Gita Yoga-s
Realization of the Supreme Self: The Bhagavad Gita Yoga-s
Description

From the Back of the Book

A practical training method, and not merely a text of revelation and worship-such is the true status of the ancient Sanskrit text Bhagavad Gita.

The special contribution of the Gita is yoga, practical methods for expanding individual consciousness to realize the Kingdom as the supreme Self. This book present the Gita yoga in the light of explanations by Sankara.

The Gita can be misread, as Sankara says. It is not a gradual ascent to the final devotion of the soul to a Lord high above. On the contrary, the first two teaching chapters hardly mention any such lord: they teach the undivided supreme Self. This is a special method of teaching in the Gita, which the present author calls Teaching Down. It is explained here, with other examples from the Gita.

The Gita is directed at the vigorously active, with responsibilities in the world. The actual practices of yoga are given for meeting the shock of the world-energies. The whole basis of Gita yoga is confirmation through experiment, not mere exhortation. This highly significant book presents the Gita as a training manual for spiritual practice.

Testimonials

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!

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.
