THE YOGA OF THE BHAGAVAD GITA sheds a fascinating light on the true intent of India's beloved scripture. Yogananda shows how the warriors doing battle on the field of Kurukshetra are intended metaphorically to represent the negative tendencies of the human ego pitted against the divine qualities latent in each soul. He describes how each of us, through applying the profound wisdom of yoga, can achieve material and spiritual victory on the battlefield of daily life.
This concise and inspiring new book is a compilation of selections from Paramahansa Yogananda's in-depth, critically acclaimed – volume translation of and commentary on the Bhagavad Gita (God Talks With Arjuna). It presents truth-seekers with an ideal introduction to the Gita's timeless and universal teachings – the liberating path of right action and meditation to achieve a permanent state of higher consciousness.
Along with its companion volume The Yoga of Jesus, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the time-proven wisdom of the ages - including the millions of yoga practitioners who are ready to go beyond physical exercises to experience the spiritual depths and true essence of India's ancient science of inner peace, joy and divine union.
