No words can justify the legacy of this granth...this is a life changing book and the interpretation of sri sri paramhansa yogananda ji proves him to be a sage of highest order. I particularly find myself interested in the arjuna-krishna conversation since those lessons are for life,this book exactly quenches my thirst of providing me that part in a very convincing and efficient way
Even a little reading experience of this book will make you wonder how profound the truths of life can be. This book is not about a battle that was fought thousands of years ago, but about the battle that's being fought right now within each one of us. Paramahansa Yogananda has presented Lord Krishna's teachings in a way that can be applied in daily life to attain all that we're really looking for. Such a blessing it is to read a passage daily, meditate on it, and apply it during the day.
A Book much needed in this kali yuga fully occupied in peoples mind by ego conciousness (Tamasa Character) and to come out of this self designed trap by each individual. Much needed and need to be made mandatory in School Eduaction whihc has become factories for making racing horses to achieve high paid jobs rather than man with good virtues.
Its huge and I dont think any other commentary on Gita in modern time has gone into such depth. Swamiji has exceptional knowledge on the subject and I have no way to quantify that. But one thing I must say, I am not sure how I would ever complete the entire book. I know Gita is not just another book and you go and read end to end, rather its a book that you would refer whenever you want for whatever reason. I think, this book would justify that never ending requirement. The two sets of books comes with a beautiful box. Unfortunately I got a torn one and I can not use it anyway. That is the reason, I have given 4 star in stead of 5 star.
It's surely one of the treasure yogananda gave to the mankind . Yogananda has special way of delivering the eternal truths profoundly. Subtle phrases and the esoteric meaning behind the scenes are explained very clearly. For every truth seeker this book lets you understand life which eventually changes your perception and take you closure to the source (God) . Another great book asusual from yogananda.
To understand the Inner meaning of Every verses of Bhagavad gita one should read the genuine one. I.e. the book which touches the real inner meaning in a very direct way. For this purpose i can suggest the following commentry on Bhagavadgita—GOD TALKS WITH ARJUNA : THE BHAGAVAD GITA by SRI SRI PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA.
Swami yogananda amazing work, beautifully presented. Simply reading slots does not give u compete value, the teachings of Lord Krishna to Arjuna is very important to apply in life, to help in the path of reaching moksha. Lahiri mahasaya character is a beautiful pictorial representation, if there was a book on that I would have bought it too. I am cherishing to read this book, which is a nectar
No commentary on Gita can be as deep as Guruji's God Talks with Arjuna. It is different from every other commentary. Highly recommended for every spiritual seekers. Read it slowly and try to understand every word of it. It will change the way you view the world. Very inspiring!
The Gita dictated as it is meant to be , simple and precise. The most difficult part of translating is not taking away true to the core meaning of what has to be conveyed and it can't be any better than this , must read for not only for every Hindu but every human
