The Bhagavadgita: An Introductory Analysis

 
Brajakishore Swain (Author)
Synopsis

The Bhagavadgita holds an assured place among the world's great scriptures. It is one of the most brilliant and pure gems of our ancient sacred books. It would be difficult to find a simpler work in Sanskrit literature or even in all the literature of the world than the Gita, which explains to us in an unambiguous and succinct manner the deep and sacred principles of the sacred science of the Self (Atman), etc.

It is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, narrated in the Bhisma Parva of the Mahabharata. It comprises eighteen discourses of a total of 701 verses. Sri Krishna, during the course of His most instructive and interesting talk with Arjuna, revealed profound, sublime and soul-searching spiritual truths, and expounded the rare secrets of Yoga, Vedanta, Bhakti and Karma.

There are many English translations of the Gita of various scholars along with their personal views expressed in introductions. These introductions present different analysis by different scholars. Of these introductions, only five are included in the present volume which bear a sound academic value. The savants whose introductions included here are: KT Telang, Balgangadhar Tilak, M.K. Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo Ghosh and Dr. S. Radhakrishnan. Hope, scholars, students as well as general readers will get pleasure going through this golden treasure.
