More Description

Providing a text and detailed commentary on one of Hindu's most important scriptures, which is a dialogue between Arjuna the man and Krishna the God, major Hindu concepts are examined in depth in this comprehensive work. Showing that Yoga is the key feature of the Gita, the book also states that it has its own interpretation of what that yoga should be: thus, yoga features not only in each of the pathways of knowledge, desireless action and devotion, but in the way in which the divine is understood. The chapters of the Bhagavad Gita therefore describe Arjuna's despondency followed by the Yoga of Sankhya, and also include action, knowledge, renunciation, meditation, and knowledge and realization. The book also contains detailed notes to the Gita chapters, a further reading section, and a combined glossary and index of Sanskrit terms.
