Description

The book, "The Wisdom of the Gita" is an outcome of a deep study of the "Gita" over a long period and broadly covers the main teachings enshrined in the scripture. The "Gita" is not merely a holy book meant for reverence and ritual worship, but it is a fountain spring of true knowledge and wisdom and can be considered as a manual for righteous living.

This small book acquaints the readers with the fundamentals of life, which include the human body and the soul, pleasure and pain, God and nature, good and evil, the different qualities inherent in human beings, yoga, meditation, desires and similar other aspects. The book has been specially designed for the busy man of the present day, who has no time to read voluminous titles.
