The Bhagwad Gita has inspired the lives of millions of people down the ages. Every now and then a new relevance, a new meaning is given to the eighteen beautiful chapters taken from the Mahabharat. In his book, The Glory of the Gita, the author has based his interpretation on stories from the ancient text of the Padma Purana. He has explained the symbolic benefits of reading the Gita, the divine benefits of chanting the mantras, by offering us a glimpse into an ancient civilisation about which one has scant knowledge. The book, through its adapted stories, hopes to reach out to the younger generation, who generally seem quite oblivious to the divine goodness of the Gita and its philosophy. Though a slim volume, it is a novel reading experience.
