Description
Publisher’s Note

This unique and very special edition of the Bhagavad Gita, the original text of which, according to Hindu believers dates back 5000 years, and over 2300 years according to modern historians, has been compiled and presented to our readers as a commemoration of our Honourable Prime Minister's gift to the then President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama in 2014 during his US visit.

Mahatma Gandhi, even over time remains as a strong force of ideology and his life has been a living demonstration of the very philosophy he so ardently believed in. While many would find the Gita a contradictory text to this deep idea of rooted nonviolence, it is always a fulfilling exercise to pick up The Bhagavad Gita according to Gandhi and remind ourselves of the scope and breadth of this doctrine of karma.

Gandhi referred to the Gita as Anasakti Yoga or the Gospel of Selfless Action and regarded it as a prime source of inspiration. He personally vouched for the accuracy and originality of this translation by Mahadev Desai. Gandhi said, "When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day."

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, while presenting a copy of this version of the Bhagavad Gita to United States President Barack Obama when he visited the White House in September 2014, declared that the Gita would be the gift that he would carry for all world leaders.

There was a lot of buzz about this incident in the media, with all sorts of extreme viewpoints. Whether it was diplomacy or part of a wider cultural habit, Modi's belief in the text of Bhagavad Gita is undeniable.

And for critics and followers alike, this Rare Collectible is a must - read.

I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
