“The Bhagavad-Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind. It is one of the most clear and comprehensive summaries of perennial philosophy ever revealed; hence its enduring value is subject not only to India but to all of humanity.” – Aldous Huxley

The Gita brings to light the positive and negative tendencies that lie within you. They are your higher aspirations and lower desires in life that affect your evolution or devolution. Its chaste philosophy helps you conquer desire and regain the supreme Self. The state of Godhood. The book comprises the text, transliteration, word-meaning, translation and commentary. A useful contribution is the topic-wise division of each chapter which helps you capture the thought-flow and message therein.

The Bhagavad Gita literally means ‘Song of the Lord’. The text begins with the word dharma and ends with the word mama. ‘Mama’ means ‘my’ and ‘dharma’, ‘essential Being’. Together they mean ‘my essential Being’. It signifies the theme of the Gita. That the purpose of life is to realise one’s essential Being. To discover the supreme Self within. Attain spiritual Enlightenment.
