Swami Chinmayananda, pioneered the art of conveying sublime knowledge intricately wrapped in Sanskrit scripture through the medium of English discourse and commentary. On realising the true purpose of life, he worked tirelessly and with tremendous energy for more than four decades to spread the message of Vedanta. A great writer, leader, patriot and spiritual giant – He brought about a spiritual renaissance of the Vedantic heritage to the world. A powerful orator with his own brand of wit and humour; he paints vividly the wisdom of the ages in front of us. His commentary on the Bhagavad Geeta and Upanishads are considered one of the best ever for their clarity and crisp logic.
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.
