EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It is dawn, just before the start of an epic war. Two armies comprising nearly four million soldiers fill a vast battlefield. Warrior elephants – their armored tusks glistening in the sunlight – trumpet and stomp the ground. Horses tethered to goldplated chariots pull at their reins, anxious for the attack. Soldiers beat drums, rattle spears, ready bows and arrows. Between the two armies, noble prince Arjuna looks out from his chariot and envisions the destruction to come. This war is a last chance for his family to regain the kingdom stolen from them fourteen years before by ruthless cousins. Yet, in these final moments, he falters. He turns to his friend and mentor Krishna, who serves as Arjuna’s charioteer, and confesses to feelings of horror over the lives that will be lost and shame over his participation. What follows is a twohour dialogue, known as the Bhagavad Gita, or “Song of the Supreme Person,” one of the world’s most renowned testimonies to the transformative power of love. In this highly readable introduction to India’s classic yoga text, scholarpractitioner Joshua M. Greene has created a bridge between the Gita’s millennial wisdom and the world we know. Through crisp renderings of verses and insightful commentary, the author sheds a bright light on profound concepts. In the tradition of theologians writing for uninitiated readers, he has provided a compulsively readable edition of the Gita, one that lures readers into the very human dimension of its sacred teachings. JOSHUA M. GREENE received his Masters Degree from Hofstra University and has been teaching Bhagvad Gita for the past twenty years. He is a popular lecturer, Emmy Awardnominated filmmaker, and author of numerous books on paths to enlightenment. In 1982, after spending thirteen years in Hindu ashrams, he returned to the United States and became a communications consultant specializing in peace initiatives. In 2000, he served as Director of Strategic Planning for the United Nations Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders. Greene teaches at Hofstra University and at Jivamukti School in New York.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

All the literature of the world is puny and insignificant in front of the Bhagwat Gita- once remarked the famous American writer and philosopher, H.D.Thoreau. This book is an outcome of a deep study of the Gita over a long period and broadly covers the main teachings enshrined in the scripture. In fact,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! Some Glimpses: *The Goal of Life: The man who remains same in pain and pleasure, and who is wise makes himself fit for eternal life. *The Charity given as a matter of duty and without expectation of return, to the right and deserving person, at the right time and place is Satvik. *Whatsoever makes the unwavering and unsteady mind wander away, let him restrain and bring it back to the control of the self alone. *A true devotee is one who has no ill-will to any being, who is friendly and compassionate, free from egoism and self sense, even-minded in pain and pleasure, and patient.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The most important aspect of our existence is that every living thing is subject to two forms of evolutionary trends. One is physical, which deals with the investigation of nature by means of science and technology. The other is spiritual, which requires an investigation of nature through perceptive power, commonly achieved through meditative practices. In "Spiritual Wisdom, author Ramesh Malhotra explores the evolution of the attainment of spiritual knowledge and inner tranquility and peace. Through practical examples of how to apply these spiritual principles to everyday life, he provides insight into the four tenets of eternal wisdom: mythological wisdom, inspirational wisdom, transcendental wisdom, and absolute truth. He provides an overview of the history of spiritual wisdom, the elements of lower and higher knowledge, and the process of self-revitalization. Providing an in-depth investigation and discussion of the spiritual knowledge and guidance found within the Bhagavad Gita, Malhotra encourages further exploration of spiritual wisdom and enlightenment in order to bring peace, tranquility, and happiness to every life journey.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The cutting edge of neurolinguistics meets the spiritual wisdom of the ages in a handbook of key words that literally rewire our brains. New discoveries in biology and the neurosciences are revealing how the structure of language-the words we think and speak-can actually change the way the neurons in our brains and hearts connect. But our ancestors understood this connection intuitively, thousands of years ago. They created specific word-patterns to provide comfort, healing, strength, and inner power in difficult times, and they encoded these powerful words in prayers, chants, mantras, hymns, and sacred writings to preserve them for future generations. Now beloved teacher and thought leader Gregg Braden cracks the code and puts these powerful words in your hands. Perfect as a pocket guide, a reference for spiritual study, or a gift to someone you love, this elegant, compact book contains Wisdom Codes that cut to the core of life's greatest tests, most challenging demands, and hardest lessons. You'll find chapters devoted to healing from loss and grief, facing your unspoken fears, finding certainty in the face of uncertain choices, and finding forgiveness, as well as ancient parables that offer a "fast track" to unraveling life's deepest mysteries. Each Wisdom Code-distilled from a quote, a scripture passage, or a parable-is accompanied by a brief discussion of what the code means, why it's important, and how to apply it in your life.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The Bhagavad Gita ("Song of the Lord") is considered the most influential of all the Hindu scriptures and is one of the greatest spiritual classics of the world. Comprised of eighteen chapters taken from the great Sanskrit epic Mahabharata, the Gita presents a conversation that takes place on a battlefield just as two groups of relatives are about to wage war against one another. Facing the forces of greed, anger, and hatred, the warrior-prince Arjuna loses heart and refuses to fight his own kin. His friend and charioteer, Lord Krishna, who represents the Divine within, tells him: "Your very nature will drive you to fight." In the ensuing dialogue, Krishna teaches Arjuna, and all of us, how we can face bravely the unavoidable challenges and conflicts of life—and win the greatest of all battles, against the tumultuous emotions within our own hearts. Eknath Easwaran's eloquent translation and Diana Morrison's chapter introductions, which summarize major religious concepts, make this edition especially accessible for modern readers of any religion.
