The Charm And Power of The Gita
The Charm And Power of The Gita
Description
Publisher's Note

The Charm and Power of the Gita, by Swami Ranganathanandaji, currently President, Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission, consists of two parts: Part one, 'An Introduction to the Study of the Gita', was formerly published as a small booklet to introduce the Bhagavad Gita to thinking people of the modern world who are busy with the various duties of their different vocations. Part two,' The Charm and power of the gita', was an illuminating talk given on this great scripture.

The three chapters in Part one were originally lectures delivered by the author in February-March 1946 under the auspices of the now defunct Ramakrishna Society, Hyderabad, Sind, Pakistan. They subsequently appeared in May and June 1946 and February 1947 issues of the Vedanta Kesari, a monthly journal of the Ramakrishna Order published from Sri Ramakrishna Math, Mylapore, Chennai. Later, in 1950, these articles were put together and published as a booklet by the Ramakrishna Mission, Shillong. In 1969 this booklet was republished by the Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture, and finally in 1991 by us. Part two is a highly informative introductory chapter from the author's Universal Message of the Bhagavad Gita, a three-volume lecture-based work (now being published) containing verse-to-verse exposition of the whole scripture in the light of modern thought and modern requirements.

We believe that this published in this new form will give the readers a comprehensive idea of the Gita and its message, and enable them to find strength and inspiration to face the varied problems in their day-to-day lives.

Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
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 !
