Being One: the vision and way of the Bhagavad Gita
Bhagavad Gita, a pinnacle in the spiritual literature of the world, was composed more than two thousand years ago by an unknown, sage, poet, philosopher and master of Yoga. The beautiful lyrics of the poem evolves around the perennial questions of human existence and presents us with answers that are profound and often transcends our habitual pattern of thinking.
This book, Being One: the vision and way of the Bhagavad Gita, highlights the modern relevance of the great ancient poem. But it also explores the poem´s historic and philosophical background with reference to the tradition of Yoga, and reflects on the deeper meaning and implications of each of its songs for people at all times. It brings to light the Gita’s grand vision of the oneness of humanity and the oneness within, a oneness which may be discovered through meditation and a harmonious way of life. A special feature of this book is its emphasis on the Gita’s unique literary qualities. The last part of the book examines the way we may live and practice the serene wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita in the midst of our contemporary turbulent world.
