Publisher's Summary

Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change people's lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita: Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda shares the profound insights of Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by one of his few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda. This revelation of India's best-loved scripture approaches it from an entirely fresh perspective, showing its deep allegorical meaning as well as its down-to-earth practicality. The themes presented are universal: how to achieve victory in life in union with the divine; how to prepare for life's "final exam", death, and what happens afterward; and how to triumph over all pain and suffering.

This books shows one of the clear contrasts between the abrahamic and eastern faith in the role and nature of good. There is no mention of the angry and vengeful god but the predominant focus is on a form of pseudoscientific explanation for the soul and it's interaction with the body. A nice read for any enthusiast in religion.
