Back of Book:

Annie Besant unfolds in this book the spiritual message of the Bhagavadgita, after having studied it deeply, translated it into English and, more than anything, also practised yoga. She points out:

'The Bhagavadgita, in its very essence, is that which it is called at the end of each of the adhyayas (chapters)-a Yoga-sastra. Unless we can learn yoga from this volume, it will, for us, have failed in its purpose.'

Guidance can be found here for learning yoga in its many aspects.

About the Author:

Annie Besant (1847-1933), second President of the Theosophical Society (1907-1933) was described as a 'Diamond Soul', for she had many brilliant facts to her character. She was an outstanding orator of her time, a champion of human freedom, educationist, philanthropist and author with more than three hundred books and pamphlets to her credit. She also guided thousands of men and women all over the world in their spiritual quest.

In her earlier days in England, she did remarkable work as a Freethinker and Fabian socialist, and supported many noble causes including women's suffrage. From 1893, she lived in India and worked indefatigably for the cultural and spiritual renaissance of the country. She organized the Home Rule movement and inspired Indians with a dynamic vision of India's future.
