Bhagavad Gita - The Divine Song
A New Translation and Commentary
A template for living both profound and practical, the Bhagavad Gita has for millennia provided sincere seekers with nothing less than a roadmap to enlightenment.
Set on a battlefield at the onset of a terrible war, the warrior-prince Arjuna, overcome by despair and on the verge of giving up, seeks guidance from his charioteer and divine mentor, Krishna.
What follows is a remarkable and life-changing dialogue, dealing with themes of life and death, the nature of the self and creation, purpose, duty, devotion and freedom from worldly suffering.
Rory Mackay's new translation renders the original Sanskrit into clear and understandable English, and comes with an in-depth commentary inspired by the works of Adi Shankara and traditional Advaita Vedanta.
With a timeless message as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago, 'The Divine Song' makes a perfect starting point for both beginner and intermediate students of Vedanta and, indeed, anyone seeking a better, happier and more successful life.
