About the Book


The Bhagavad Gita needs no introduction. The universe to which it refers, on the other hand, feels like it could well do with one. Marked by flux, our increasingly incomprehensible global world presents considerable ethical, political and social challenges.


Could the Gita, for all its philosophical abstraction, serve as an introduction to navigating this space of capitalist modernity? What can it tell us about global warming and violence, inequality and suffering, pandemics and the savage oppression of vulnerable groups? Rohit Chopra's masterful examination of the Gita interrogates the relevance of its ideas to these questions and to the present moment.


This book is a timely meditation for a period characterised by crisis while also speaking to a time beyond. It uses the Gita as a lens through which to look at pressing questions of war, difference and uncertainty. Combining philosophical discussion, meticulous research and sharp political insight,


The Gita for a Global World does what that ancient text has done for years—illuminate and provoke while asking each of us to choose how we will act to meet the challenges of the present and future.
