About the book:

The book is an abridged version of the five thousand - page manuscript and supportive documents. The book highlights message of Karma Yoga of Bhagvad Gita.
This book is a critical analysis of the Bhagvad Gita from the author's personal perspective. The book is divided into 18 sections as per the chapters of the Gita. Each chapter is subdivided thematically which makes it very reader-friendly. The first consists of chapters 1-6 and the second consists of chapters 7-18.
The first volume highlights the importance of Karma consisting of first six chapters including Sankhya Yoga, which is known as mini Bhagavad Gita. This is the chapter wherein the dis-illsioned Arjuna is instructed by Krishna as to how a realised soul will behave. The importance of self-less action and the role of meditation is nicely brought out in this volume.
The second volume consists of chapters from seven to eighteen wherein the role of devotion, the three kinds of Gunas, along with the cosmic vision of the Lord have been highlighted.
Both the volumes have inter-connection and hence they serve as complimentary to one another. Both the volumes are highly informative, interesting, inspiring, incisive, and directly strikes a cord to the reader and creates an indelible impression. The encyclopedic knowledge of the author runs through both the volumes as a common thread. The book is a worth read for any serious aspirant of spirituality and to the inquisitive of the Bhagvad Gita as well.
