The Spiritual Import of the Mahabharata and The Bhagavadgita
The Spiritual Import of the Mahabharata and The Bhagavadgita
Description
Preface

Rare is the opportunity for a spiritual seeker to hear words of wisdom spoken by a great sage. Speakers may be many, but true sages are few. His Holiness Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj was a learned and wise saint of the very highest order of attainment, and he was a person who had the marvelous gift to impart his wisdom to others in a clear and precise way. While his language can at times be highly philosophical in nature, the clarity and essential simplicity of his message nevertheless shines through.

To say that Swami Krishnananda was a lover of the Mahabharata and the Bhagavadgita would be a tremendous understatement. The Bhagavadgita was a presence that filled his very being and was with him every step of the way. Swamiji spoke many times on its import and message and gave other the inspiration and understanding to delve into this great gospel of Sri Krishna.

The residents and visitors to the Sivananda Ashram in Rishikesh had many opportunities to hear Swami Krishnananda's enlightening teachings, as he typically spoke every Sunday at the evening Satsanga on various topics that were helpful and inspiring to the listeners. The talks that are included in this book come from Satsangas held between 3 June 1979 and 3 February 1980. Swami Krishnananda takes the listeners through the Mahabharata and through each of the chapters of the Bhagavadgita in successive talks, elucidating the main points in each chapter and giving insight and guidance for all. Always and in every case his teachings are practical and applicable in daily life. He takes the highest truths given in the Bhagavadgita and makes them relevant to every spiritual seeker. Not only his teachings, but also his very life are both wonderful gifts to all seekers of Truth.

May the blessings of Lord Krishna and Holy Master Sri Swami Sivanandaji Maharaj be on all those who take to the study of this valuable book.

Back of the Book

His Holiness Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj is one of the foremost exponents of the Mahabharata and the Bhagavadgita. Fully established in the highest awareness, Swamiji is a living example of how God Almighty takes human form to answer the call of sincere spiritual seekers. As the manifestation of Sri Krishna, Swamiji's exposition of lord Krishna's teachings transforms the very being of all who come in contact with these divine thoughts.

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.
