The search for higher truth must be conducted in the midst of the forces of life, with all its demands and seductions. So teaches The Bhagavad Gita, an ancient text that has been called the quintessence of the spirituality of India. In it, the great warrior Arjuna contemplates the meaning of life, just moments before entering the battlefield. "Why do I exist? Why should I fight against my loved ones? And where shall I go after I die?" he asks himself in search for knowledge of the Absolute.

I bought this audiobook about 6 months ago and I've probably listened to it 20 times in the car while commuting. I'm now practically an authority since I can quote whole passages. The book is without a doubt the most powerful philosophical work I've ever been exposed to and the narrator is perfect. I would absolutely recommend this anyone interested in finding a new way to view the world. I mind altering and life changing experience for $3.95! Ha!
Don't listen while driving, the narrator will put you to sleep
While another reviewer praised the narrator as "perfect", in my opinion, he is nearly monotonic and very difficult to listen to. I supposed it's hard to read the Gita with a lot of animation in one's voice, but this version just doesn't work for me. I like audiobooks while driving, but I when listening to this in my car, it's dangerous because it makes me sleepy. I find myself having to rewind quite a bit as the narrator drones on without any inflection or change in cadence.
