The Bhagavad Gita is a unique text. Short but power packed, it is part philosophy, part self help and part poetry. Translations can be tantalizingly enigmatic, and commentaries can suck the life out of its verses. This book has explanations where needed and presents Arjuna’s reaction to Krishna’s teachings, in poetry. Arjuna gets little air time in the Gita. As Everyman, he voices our dilemmas on being human and trying to follow the path of the Gita.
