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

Dr. Julius J. Lipper has been teaching Indian and comparative religion at the university of Cambridge ofr many years and is at present Director of the Dharam Hinduja Institute of Indic Research.

Testimonials
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
