Summary

The Glorious Bhagavad Gita renders in English all eighteen chapters of this holy spiritual text from 3500 years ago, filled with esoteric and practical wisdom about a wide variety of life questions and experiences, recited to a meter and tune based on the Sanskrit version as sung by Anandamayi Ma.
The discourse takes place in the middle of a battle scene of the Mahabharata saga. As the Bhagavad Gita begins, the great warrior Arjuna is despondent to see his friends and relatives arrayed in battle before his chariot, intending to fight against his side in this war. In the midst of this dilemna, Arjuna refuses to fight and takes refuge in his friend Krishna, who then reveals his cosmic, universal form and teaches Arjuna the great wisdom of life, death, and enlightenment.
Chapter 1 sets the stage with names of all the warriors and instruments of war that were gathered before Arjuna on the battlefield, and the subsequent chapters elucidate the Bhagavad Gita teachings and wisdom.

Really loved this

Really loved this personal effort and rendition of a book I am learning about. Our little baby Amadeus calms down when it's on which I think is testament to this piece of genuine heartfelt warmth.

Just for certain people

No one I know would have liked this except me--and I love it. The "melody" sticks in your head though, and if you are expecting a "song" to rhyme, you have to overcome that.
