The Bhagwat Gita is the main sourcebook on yoga and is a concise summary of India's Vedic wisdom. Yet, remarkably, the setting for this classic spiritual text is an ancient Indian battlefield.

In this interpretation of the Gita, the author explains that the essence of the Gita is the equanimity of mind, which is attained by transcending it because mind consciousness is myopic and only spiritual consciousness abounds in universal love and absolute knowledge.

This best-selling and expanded edition of the most famous and popular of Indian scriptures contextualizes the book culturally and historically and explains the key concepts of Hindu religious thought and the technical vocabulary of yoga. Chapter introductions, notes and a glossary help readers understand the book's message better. Most importantly, the translation uses simple, clear language to impart the poetry, universality and timelessness of the Gita's teachings."
