The Bhagavad Gita

Nataraja Guru (Author)
Synopsis Indisputably one of the world’s best-known books, the Bhagavad Gita embodies the quintessence of classical Upanishadic philosophy, presented in the form of a dialogue between Krishna, the archetypal teacher, and Arjuna, the archetypal human being caught in the grip of a monumental crisis. For anyone like Arjuna who has ever paused to ponder the meaning of life, the work is as relevant today as it was when it was written. By stripping away the manifold biases — both subtle and obvious — that have coloured other commentaries, Guru Nitya has uncovered the perennial philosophy at the heart of this great classic. In an original, easy to understand format, his commentary divides each of the Gitas eighteen chapters into three sections: the first elucidating the basic concepts involved; the second including Sanskrit text in Roman script along with the English meaning of each word or phrase and Nataraja Guru’s lucid and revolutionary English translation; and the third carrying explanatory notes and comments in the form of a dialogue between a teacher and student. The breakthrough of this interpretation of the Gita is in its transcendence of sectarian dogma to reveal the work as a fully developed scientific psychology, whose keen insights and vivid reasoning can be readily appreciated by the twenty-first century mind.

About the author

Nataraja Guru

Nataraja Guru was born in Bangalore in 1895. After graduation from the University of Madras he became a close disciple of the Guru Narayana (1854-1928). As the disciple-successor of Narayana Guru he is a representative of the same pure, direct vertical line of succession of philosophical revaluators extending back through time to the most ancient phase of the history of human thought. Nataraja Guru studied under Henri Bergson at the Sorbonne at Paris, where he took his Doctorate in Educational Psychology. In 1923 he founded the Narayana Gurukula Foundations, a Guru-disciple foundation for the preservation of the type of life and global attitude suggested in this book, and in line with the Advaita Vedanta Ashramas of India. In 1951, Nataraja Guru was himself publilcly acknowledged as a Guru uniquely qualified to present the teaching and attitude expressed by his Master. He has translated into English and commented on all the major works of Narayana Guru, and has written on a wide variety of subjects, employing throughout a protolinguistic or structural approach which could be said to be his unique contribution to the perennial wisdom-heritage of mankind.
