The Bhagavad Gita: A Thread through the Eighteen Gems Book
  • Author : Dr. A.V. Srinivasan
  • Publisher : Periplus Line
  • Release : 2016-06-27
  • ISBN : 1684199336
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

A re-reading of the Hindu classic, the Bhagavad Gita, a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and his charioteer Lord Krishna. This episode which occurs in the Sanskrit epic, The Mahabharata, is often read for its own sake and given the status of a holy scripture by Hindus. Reviews: "This is a brilliant book that I recommend wholeheartedly. It picks a central thought from each of the Bhagavad Gita's 18 chapters and uses that to communicate deep insights about life and meaning. People who wish to understand the Gita or other Vedic texts will love it, and it will also be useful to those who are experts." Professor Subhash Kak, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK "... Srinivasan's commentary is itself a gem. It combines an accessible, easy style of writing with a rigorous translation by a master of the Sanskrit language (and also includes the original Sanskrit text itself, for those with the ability to follow along and to come to their own conclusions regarding its meaning and import). Including references to earlier interpretations within the Hindu tradition, this work stands in a distinguished lineage of scriptural commentary.... I recommend it highly!" Professor Jeffery Long, Elizabethtown College, PA "This modest volume succeeds admirably in raising the right questions and pointing to insightful answers." Swami Tyagananda, Sri Ramakrishna Vedanta Society, Boston and Hindu Chaplain at MIT and Harvard. "Readers will surely benefit from a study of the book. There is an appendix to the book, containing the text of some earlier publications of the author. The book should certainly be prescribed reading for students, especially the children of non-resident Indians living outside India." Vedanta Kesari; May 2016

Book Description :

The "inward looking" ancient Hindus did indeed marvel at the Cosmos focusing on the universe outside their own self. They believed that the life of a child was, to some extent, influenced by the precise positions of the heavenly bodies at the time of birth. Hence the worship of planets. They set up worship procedures along the lines described here and are still practiced by Hindus around the world. The "Planet Worship" describes the worship with Sanskrit mantras in Devanagari script and transliteration with English translation.
