A commentary on Chapter 3 of the Bhagavad Gita with examples on how to integrate the teachings of the Gita into one's daily life.
In ancient India, when people wanted to teach spiritual lessons, they did so through symbolic stories. The Bhagavad Gītā is one such story. Gītā refers to poems that are sung and Bhagavad means God or the Self. So the Bhagavad Gītā is known as the Song of God. This version of the full e-publication of the Bhagavad Gītā has been divided into three separate e-books mirroring the three volumes of the original print. Volume 3, Chapters XIII-XVIII, focuses on Jñāna Yoga, the yoga of knowledge.
Eknath Easwaran is a foremost translator and interpreter of the much-loved Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. In this last book of his three-volume verse-by-verse commentary on the Gita, covering chapters 13 – 18, Easwaran translates each verse, relates it to our modern lives through stories and anecdotes, and gives us spiritual exercises that we can use every day. He explains the concept of karma, the vast network of cause and effect, and offers many examples to illustrate its immense reach. He shows how everyday choices, taken together, can lead a society to violence and waste, or to a higher way of living. This volume ends with a glorious description of bhakti yoga, the path of devotion. Instructions in how to use Easwaran’s universal method of passage meditation are included.
This warm, practical commentary by the author of the best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita helps us understand and apply the Gita's teachings, to find meaning, peace, and wisdom in our lives.
EDITORIAL VISHNUPADA is offering this presentation of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita to the Earth as a gift to humanity. It is our humble but earnest request that this information be made easily available to every culture in this world. The knowledge found within the Bhagavad-Gita is incomparable as it gives specific information regarding the purpose of human existence, the immortality of the soul and our eternal relationship with God. This information applies to each and every one of us without exception. Without realization of our divine relationship with the God it is impossible to establish our eternal relationship with Him. There are three paths which lead directly to establishing a relationship with God. According to the authority of Bhagavad-Gita these paths have been designated as the yoga of perfect actions, the yoga of perfect devotion and the yoga of perfect knowledge. Ramanuja The Bhagavad-Gita was spoken by Lord Krishna to reveal the science of devotion to God which is the essence of all spiritual knowledge. The Supreme Lord Krishnas primary purpose for descending and incarnating is relieve the world of any demoniac and negative, undesirable influences that are opposed to spiritual development, yet simultaneously it is His incomparable intention to be perpetually within reach of all humanity. Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Srila Prabhupada The Bhagavad-Gita is not separate from the Vaisnava philosophy and the Srimad Bhagavatam fully reveals the true import of this doctrine which is transmigration of the soul. On perusal of the first chapter of Bhagavad-Gita one may think that they are advised to engage in warfare. When the second chapter has been read it can be clearly understood that knowledge and the soul is the ultimate goal to be attained. On studying the third chapter it is apparent that acts of righteousness are also of high priority. If we continue and patiently take the time to complete the Bhagavad-Gita and try to ascertain the truth of its closing chapter we can see that the ultimate conclusion is to relinquish all the conceptualized ideas of religion which we possess and fully surrender directly unto the Supreme Lord. Baladeva Vidyabhusana Those that have the qualification to understand the Bhagavad-Gita are of three categories: Those who are inherently reverent, those who are verily righteous and sincere in the performance of their daily scriptural duties and those who are of controlled senses. Madhvacarya The Mahabharata has all the essential ingredients necessary to evolve and protect humanity and that within it the Bhagavad-Gita is the epitome of the Mahabharata just as ghee is the essence of milk and pollen is the essence of flowers. Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Advise everyone to follow the instructions of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita as spoken by Lord Krishna. In this way authorised by Me become a spiritual master and redeem this world. Mahatma Gandhi The Gita is the universal mother. She turns away nobody. Her door is wide open to anyone who knocks. A true votary of Gita does not know what disappointment is. He ever dwells in perennial joy and peace that passeth understanding. But that peace and joy come not to skeptic or to him who is proud of his intellect or learning. It is reserved only for the humble in spirit who brings to her worship a fullness of faith and an undivided singleness of mind. There never was a man who worshipped her in that spirit and went disappointed. I find a solace in the Bhagavad-Gita that I miss even in the Sermon on the Mount. When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad-Gita. I find a verse here and a verse there, and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies -- and my life has been full of external tragedies -- and if they have left no visible or indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching of Bhagavad-Gita.

Two friends have a conversation at the outset of an epic war. One of them, Arjuna, is sad and confused in the face of imminent doom; the other, Krishna, decides to cheer him up and clear his doubts. Through the course of their battlefield dialogue Krishna assumes the role of a mentor teaching Arjuna the timeless wisdom of the 'Bhagavad-Gita'. Krishna's universal message applies to the whole of human life since it is an extension of his colorful, multi-dimensional personality: god, king, warrior, strategist, statesman, philosopher, charmer, and above all a joyful participant in the game of life. The Bhagavad-Gita is a great place to start if one wants to know about India's grand heritage, religion, art, culture, lifestyle, philosophy, and spirituality. The Complete Bhagavad-Gita explores the ancient text verse-by-verse, word-by-word and takes the reader on a journey of the Gita like never before.
