    DescriptionThe "Bhagavad Gita" has been called India's greatest contribution to the world. For more than five thousand years, this great scripture has shown millions in the East how to fill their lives with serenity and love. In these pages, Jack Hawley brings these ancient secrets to Western seekers in a beautiful prose version that makes the story of the "Gita" clear and exciting, and makes its truths understandable and easy to apply to our busy lives. The "Gita" is a universal love song sung by God to His friend man. It can't be confined by any creed. It is a statement of the truths at the core of what we all already believe, only it makes those truths clearer, so they become immediately useful in our daily lives. These truths are for our hearts, not just our heads. The "Gita" is more than just a book, more than mere words or concepts. There is an accumulated potency in it. To read the "Gita" is to be inspired in the true sense of the term: to be "in-spirited," to inhale the ancient and ever-new breath of spiritual energy.

    "A commendable book. The author 'walks us through' this classic scripture from India in moving prose that reads as smoothly as a child's adventure tale." -- "The New Times" "An extremely delightful translation. Lord Krishna's terms have all been presented faithfully by the author...with depth of knowledge and insight. The author has thoroughly understood this universal [spiritual] classic." -- "The Hindu", India's foremost national newspaper
