This book presents the Gita yoga in the light of explanations by Sankara. The Gita can be misread, as Sankara says. It is not a gradual ascent to the final devotion of the soul to a Lord high above. The whole basis of Gita yoga is confirmation through experiments not mere exhortion. This highly significant book presents the Gita as a training manual for spiritual practice.
This book is an excellent guide accessible to all. While highlighting the heart of the Gita text, the author by means of contemporary examples and illustrations helps to bridge the gap with the modern audience allowing the timeless message and guidance to shine clearly through. The book is aimed very much as a prompt for personal practice and experimentation: in essence the aim of Gita itself. A challenging and inspiring book, one to read and re-read and to use.
