THE BHAGAVADGITA FOR OUR TIMES
THE BHAGAVADGITA FOR OUR TIMES
Description
About The Book:

The Bhagavadgita is a religious text with an established history that has played and continues to play a most significant role in the lives of countless individuals. It is a text which raises significant questions of interpretation and the transmission of knowledge, of the right action, of culture and approach, and of personal commitment in contrast to the 'objective study' of barriers.

The Bhagavadgita for our Times is a collection of seven essays exploring the meaning and symbolism of this challenging ancient text to reveal how it is still relevant in addressing the problems of the modern world, in terms of Dharma (duty), Kama (desire), Artha (wealth) and Moksa (freedom). Written in language that will be scholars who have contributed to this work pave the way to a deeper understanding of the profound vision contained in the Bhagavadgita

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
