The Steadfast Wisdom is an English rendering of the “Stitaprajna Darshana” (Marathi), a compilation of the discourses given by Acharya Vinoba Bhave on the last eighteen verses of the second chapter of the Bhavat Gita. The talks were given by Vinoba in Seoni Jail to his fellow-prisoners in 1944 while he was incarcerated as a Satyagrahi in connection with the Indian Freedom Struggle.

About the Author:

Vinoba Bhave was one of the great spiritual leaders and social reformers of modern India, whose work and personal example moved the heart of all Indians, from Prime Ministers to the poor. Born in 1895, at the age of ten he took a vow of lifelong celibacy and service to others. Searching for a way of life that would embody both spiritual truth and practical action, he discovered Gandhi and joined in his work for the regeneration of India.

Vinoba participated in Gandhi’s non-violent resistance (satyagraha) to the British Raj. Later, after independence had been achieved, Vinoba started out on his extraordinary bhoodan (Land Gift) movement. Over a period of twenty years, Vinoba walked the length and breath of India, persuading landlords to give to their poor neighbors a total of over four million aces of land.

Vinoba’s social activism was founded on a lifetime’s study of the spiritual traditions of India, and also of the other major world religions. These memories reveal both the inner and outer life of a great man who has an unwavering commitment to the practice of non-violence, to an engaged spirituality, and to the power of love.

Customer Reviews of The Steadfast Wisdom
Review by BKVinay Pandya: Thursday 09 April, 2009
The book contains the essence of all wisdom on earth. If read after reading "The Talks on the Gita" one won't have to read anything for self development and serving the teeming millions.

The book empowers you to conduct a self search - understand the inner core - and then pick up practical tips for applying the principles in day to day life

I thank the translator as the english rendering will make it available to millions all over the world.

Kudos to you both - the writer and the translator
