BHAGAVAD-GITA FOR BEGINNERS
In the Bhagavad-Gita, one of the most beautiful spiritual texts ever written, the central figure asks God about issues as compelling today as they were thousands of years ago. In Bhagavad Gita for Beginners: The Song of God in Simplified Prose, author Edward Viljoen uses contemporary, simplified language to bring this inspiring work to life.
That which seems to be forcing people to act in selfish–even evil–ways is really the accumulation of desires coming together in a strong, irresistible appetite for self-satisfaction. These desires are rooted in the senses, and sense information can be misleading. More powerful than the senses, though, is the mind. And more powerful than the mind is the will (or intellect), and that which is above it all,–the Real Self, that part of us not deluded by the information of the sense world.
Bhagavad-Gita For Beginners will inspire uninitiated readers of the Bhagavad-Gita to delve into the original text, as well as bring a newly-found clarity and perspective to those already familiar with it.
