Like a Thousand Suns

Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Vol. 2

The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living is Easwaran’s magnum opus, a practical verse-by-verse commentary on India’s timeless scripture, the Bhagavad Gita.

The Bhagavad Gita is set on a battlefield in a mythic war between good and evil. Easwaran translates each verse, relates it to modern life through stories and anecdotes, and gives spiritual exercises that you can use every day.

This second volume in a three-volume set covers chapters 7–12 of the Gita, and concentrates on the supreme Reality which underlies all creation. Easwaran builds a bridge between scientific knowledge and spiritual wisdom, culminating in the final chapter, The Way of Love.

I've read many of this wonderful man's books, and after finishing his Classics of Indian Spirituality series, had to go further into the Bhagavad Gita with this priceless 3-set Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living. Lots of people have written thoughtful reviews of the first book in the series but few mention this second book. Honestly, I could write chapters on how this easy to read book will help anyone on the spiritual journey. But I would only be repeating much of what was written on the first book in the series.

I wish I could offer you a money back guarantee but obviously that's not possible. If you have any interest in immersing yourself deeper in one of the most important spiritual books ever written, you'd be hard pressed to find a better place to start than this beautiful series. I'd previously struggled through two other translations of the Gita and got little from the effort, but Eknath Easwaran writes in a very readable and understandable way. I know you won't regret the decision to read this series.
