Author: Commentary by Swami Chinmayananda
The Bhagavad Gita is ‘The Lord’s Song’ or the ‘Song Celestial’ as Edwin Arnold calls it. It is the most popular and probably the single most influential text in Hindu philosophy.
It is certainly one of the world’s greatest scriptures.
The message of Geeta is universal in its scope, and it opens the gate of deliverance to all without distinction. Lord Krishna states, “Through whatever paths men seek to come unto Me, I accept them through those very paths; all paths which men take, O Arjuna, lead ultimately unto Me only.”
Although there are many commentaries on the Geeta, it is the careful analysis and brilliant reasoning of Swami Chinmayananda’s version that makes it so exceptional. There is a constant attempt to bring forth from each verse not only its literal meanings but also its hidden import that reveals a wealth of knowledge.
A rare Masterpiece.
