The Hindu Philosophy of Conduct (Vol III)
The Hindu Philosophy of Conduct (Vol III)
Description
From the Jacket

The Hindu Philosophy of Conduct, lectures on the Bhagavadgita brings out clearly in a distinctive style and in a cogent manner translations and all explanations wherever required in a scientific temper with a modern outlook to widen the Indian thought with a fresh outlook merging the old thoughts of the East with the new ones of the West.

Gita is recognized as the scriptural authority and all its religious, moral instructions are to be taken as the mandate of God for the betterment, welfare, and progress of the human community, Sri Krsna explains with a strikingly catholic approach and upholds the doctrine of human conduct of Arjuna.

It is difficult to get salvation by studying all the scriptures. Sri Krsna explains the path of Karma and Jnama yogas according to their particular sphere of life and points out that pure bhakti to the Lord guided by duty with non-attachment will be ultimate means of salvation. The chief doctrine of the Bhagavad-Gita is Karmanyevadhikarasthe M.A. Phalesu Kadacana.
