"The author 'walks us through' this classic scripture from India in moving prose that reads as smoothly as a child's adventure tale." - The New Times
When Mahatma Gandhi - the "great-souled one," the leader of India who nonviolently freed his country from British rule - died, a now famous photograph was taken of all his possessions: his simple white cotton piece of clothing, his glasses, his sandals, and his well-worn copy of The Bhagavad Gita. It was a book he read daily, a source of endless inspiration to him.
The Gita is read daily by millions of people in India, as well as throughout the world; it is in the homes of literally hundreds of millions of people, and is considered by a great many to be the finest source of spiritual teaching in the world.
When Jack Hawley presented us with this extraordinary prose version of it, which tells the story so clearly and beautifully, everyone in our company felt as if we had been given a great gift - one we feel blessed to be able to publish and share with the world.
There is endless wisdom and inspiration in these pages. The Gita has proven itself over hundreds of generations to be one of the greatest gifts ever given to humanity, one of the greatest scriptures ever written.
Read it straight through, as a magnificent story filled with great teaching. Or simply open it to any page at random, and ponder the words, applying them to your life experience.
This is more than a book, more than the writings of any mortal man or woman. It is Divine revelation, filled with the words of a vast, illuminated soul - and these words can lead you to a far greater life experience, and even to illumination itself.
