India's timeless and most practical scripture, set on a battlefield in mythic war between good and evil, has a practical appeal for modern times. It is a practical manual for everyone who aims at goodness in the world of conflict and change.

Ten years in the making, The Bhagavad Gita For Daily Living distills insight and understanding that have made Eknath Easwaran one of the best loved teachers in the world. This verse-by-verse translation and commentary illustrates Gita’s lofty insight with everyday events and contemporary problems familiar to all of us. The first volume of The Bhagavad Gita For Daily Living concentrates on the individual: the nature of our innermost self, how it can be discovered in the depths of consciousness, and how this discovery transforms daily living.

The introduction outlines Eknath Easwaran’s eight-point program and includes full instructions in how to meditate. The second volume builds bridge between scientific knowledge and spiritual understanding by the indivisible unity governing all creation. Easwaran illustrates the steps we can take to realise this unity and heal divisions within society and in ourselves. The third volume is global in scope but its emphasis is on individuals: what you and I can do. Easwaran presents life as a feel where actions and desires are sown like seeds, which germinate, grow and yield fruit that eventually scatters more seeds.

This vast network of cause and effect is what is meant by the Sanskrit word Karma, and Easwaran offers many examples to illustrate its immense reach "how everyday choices, taken together, can lead a society to violence and waste or to a higher way of living.

Because of its freedom from sectarian bias, The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living is to be preferred to other translations....For college, university, and public libraries.'-Choice.

About the Author:

Born into an ancient matrilineal Hindu family in Kerala state. South India, Eknath Easwaran regards his mother's mother as his spiritual teacher. She taught him by her selfless example how to find complete fulfillment in the family context. Easwaran was chairman of the English department of a well-known Indian university when he came to the United States on the Fulbright exchange program. Here, as in India, his humor and humanness soon made him a teacher of enormous appeal. In 1960 he established the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Berkeley, California- "to move." as he puts it, "from education for degrees to education for living." As the Center's director, he continues to teach meditation in the greater San Francisco Bay Area to those who want to lead active, spiritually fulfilling lives in the midst of family, friends, and society. Easwaran brings to this volume a rare combination of literary skill, scholarship, and spiritual wisdom.

His Sanskrit comes from one of the purest traditions in India, and for almost twenty years he followed a successful career as a writer, lecturer, and teacher of English literature. But it is essentially the stamp of personal experience that makes Easwaran's presentation of the spiritual life so effective. In this book, without metaphysics or philosophy, he illustrates the practicality of the Bhagavad Gita with familiar anecdotes from daily living. Besides The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Easwaran has written Meditation, Gandhi the Man. Dialogue with Death, and Conquest of Mind. His translations of India's spiritual classics appear in The Bhagavad Gita, The Dhammapada, and The Upanishads. He has compiled God Makes the Rivers to Flow, an anthology of passages for meditation from the world's great scriptures and mystics, and writes for The Little Lamp, the journal of the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation.
