This book underscores that the Gita is not for abandoning active life but
for reconstructing. The book focuses particularly on the modern man. It does not
deal with an imaginary or an ideal situation but with man's real life. It
recognises that man is caught up in a whirlpool of conflicting values and tries
to resolve and reconcile them. The book explores various dimensions of man's
life - as an individual, as a family member, as a social being and as a
businessman, as well.
The book selects only a few chapters and shlokas and
brings out the principal teachings of the Gita which are of direct relevance in
the context of contemporary modern life.
Excerpts from the
"Parables and metaphors in the Gita have been used as in other ancient
scritures and literature to explain the subtle meanings in a simple manner
to the reader.
.....Separate chapters have been devoted to different ingredients of Karma
.....A Perusal of the relevant chapters would make it
clear to the reader and convince him or her of the efficacy of different
concepts of the Gita." - from the Introduction
