This is the Hindi translation of the Bhagavad Gita by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. The Bhagavad Gita is presented as a conversation between Arjuna and Krishna, a man and a god, a seeker and a knower. Every instant in the Gita is universal in nature. It is not just an event which happened a long time ago. It’s a perennial phenomenon which is happening every day. That is the beauty of this knowledge. It’s not limited to time and space. It’s the eternal song (Gita), because its values hold good for all generations, for people all over. This ancient Indian text is about the search for serenity, calmness, and permanence in a world of rapidly changing ethics and morals. With the simplest of words , Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, takes the reader from amidst the contradictions and the confusion towards action.
On the first day of the war, Arjuna asks Lord Krishna, his charioteer, to take the chariot between both the armies. On both the sides are family, friends, Gurus, elders, near and dear ones he has grown up with. Victory at the cost of the lives of his kinsmen drives a shudder through the brave warrior. He expresses his inability to fight and slay his kith and kin. Lord Krishna puts on the mantle of a Guru and counsels and guides Arjuna. The conversation between both of them is the Bhagavad Gita.
This book is a compilation of a series of talks on some of the chapters of the Bhagavad Gita, by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Gurudev demystifies these immensely powerful verses and makes them easier to blend into daily living.
