Publisher's Summary

The search for higher truth must be conducted in the midst of the forces of life, with all its demands and seductions. So teaches The Bhagavad Gita, an ancient text which has been called the quintessence of the spirituality of India. In it, the great warrior Arjuna contemplates the meaning of life, just moments before entering the battlefield. Why do I exist, why should I fight against my loved ones, and where shall I go after I die, he asks himself in search for knowledge of the Absolute.


What the Critics Say

Hearing the Bhagavad Gita, rather than reading it, helps one understand why many cultures to this very day refuse to commit their sacred texts to writing, believing that script would profane them. (Huston Smith, author of The Religions of Man)

I enjoyed listening to this through my fasting period and also because I could stop and rewind when needed, it’s very insightful but I have to say the reader is very monotone and to some extent pushed you to a little sense of sleepiness but with focus and concentration its a good listen.
