The Bhagavad Gita (pocket edition)
Pocket version with Sanskrit, transliteration and English translation by Swami Jyotirmayananda. There is no scripture as profound, practical, clear and succinct as the Bhagavad Gita. It is the essence of the Vedas, Upanishads and Brahma Sutras, and universal in its exposition of man’s movement towards God. This book makes a great little spiritual companion.
Lord Krishna’s life is masterfully detailed in this book through colorful stories and their compelling interpretations by the author, revealing their subtle mystical significance that can be applied in everyday life. Through the delightful path of devotion, every sincere aspirant will experience the melody of Lord Krishna’s flute reverberating through the enchanting stories, beckoning and urging the soul towards Divine Communion.
The Upanishads constitute the essence of the teachings from the Vedas, laying the foundation for the non-dualistic school of Advaita Vedanta. In this book, Swami Jyotirmayananda brilliantly conveys the wisdom of four major Upanishadic texts – Kena, Mundaka, Prashna, and Ishavasya – in a concise and simple manner. The author’s translation and commentary of these ancient works enumerate for the spiritual seeker, in fine detail, the timeless truths realized through the spiritual revelations of the ancient sages and saints of India.
