About the Book :

India's timeless and most practiced scripture, set on a battlefield in mythic war between good and evil, has a practical appeal for modern times. It is a practical manual for everyone who aims at goodness in the world of conflict and change.

This verse-by-verse translation and commentary illustrates Gita's lofty insight with everyday events and contemporary problems familiar to all of us.

The first volume of The Bhagavad Gita For Daily Living concentrates on the individual; the nature of our innermost self, how it can be discovered in the depths of consciousness, and how this discovery transforms daily living. The introduction outlines Eknath Easwaran's eight point program and includes full instructions in how to meditate.

The second volume builds a bridge between scientific knowledge and spiritual understanding by the indivisible unity governing all creations. Easwaran illustrates the steps we can take to realize this unity and heal divisions within society and in ourselves.

The third volume is global in scope but its emphasis is on individuals; what you and I can do. Easwaran presents life as a field where actions and desires are sown like seeds, which germinate, grow and yield fruit that eventually scatters more seeds. This vast network of cause and effect is what is meant by the Sanskrit word Karma, and Easwaran offers many examples to illustrate its immense reach "how everyday choices, taken together, can lead a society to violence and waste or to a higher way of living.

About the Author :

Born into an ancient matrilineal Hindu family in Kerala state, South India, Eknath Easwaran regards his mother's mother as his spiritual teacher. She taught him by her selfless example how to find complete fulfillment in the family context.

Easwaran was chairman of the English department of a well-known Indian university when he came to United States on the Fullbright exchange program. Here, as in India, his hunor and humanness soon made him a teacher of enormous appeal. In 1961 he established the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Berkeley, California - "to move." As he puts, "from education for degrees to education for living." As the Center's director, he continues to teach meditation in the greater San Francisco Bay Area to those who want to lead active, spiritually fulfilling lives in the midst of family, friends, and society.

Easwaran brings to this volume a rare combination of literary skill, scholarship, and spiritual wisdom. His Sanskrit comes from one of the purest traditions in India, and for almost twenty years he followed a successful career as a writer, lecturer, and teacher of English literature. But it is essentially the stamp of personal experience that makes Easwaran's presentation of the spiritual life so effective. In this book, without metaphysics or philosophy, he illustrates the practically of the Bhagavad Gita with familiar anecdotes from daily living.

Besides the Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Easwaran has written Meditation, Gandhi the Man, Dialogue with Death, and Conquest of Mind. His translations of India's spiritual classics appear in The Bhagavad Gita, The God Makes the Rivers to Flow, an anthology of passages for meditation from the world's great scriptures and mystics, and writes for The Little Lamp, the journal of the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
