Banyen's Description: 

Th Bhagavad Gita has been called India’s greatest contribution to the world. For more than five thousand years, this great scripture has instructed millions on how to live with serenity and wisdom in the midst of “the battle of life.” In these pages, Jack Hawley brings these perennial instructions to Western seekers in a beautiful prose version that makes the story of the Gita clear and exciting, and makes its truths understandable and easy to apply to our busy lives today.

The Gita is read daily by millions of people in India, as well as throughout the world; it is in the homes of literally hundreds of millions of people, and is considered by a great many to be the finest source of spiritual teaching in the world.

The Gita is more than just a book, more than mere words or concepts. There is an accumulated potency in it. To read the Gita is to be inspired in the true sense of the term: to be “in-spirited,” in inhale the ancient and ever-new breath of spiritual energy.

This translation of the epic mystical poem uses everyday prose to walk the reader through some difficult concepts. Jack Hawley’s Gita is not an abstract classic but a “universal love song” that covers a wide range of topics, from healing inner pain to celebrating life and “liberation through Knowing, Acting, and Loving.”

In the Gita, the Divine comes to His friend man in the middle of a vicious war and carefully expounds the laws and principles that govern life...

These are ideas of extraordinary size and power, with numerous subtleties and shades of thought. Krishna presents each of these huge ideas gradually, piece by piece, chapter after chapter, until the whole picture becomes clear.
