This short course sets out a detailed study of the text, philosophy, and contemporary significance of the teachings found within the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita, which was spoken perhaps five thousand years ago and whose written form has been extant for over two thousand years, has continued to inspire new generations of seekers in the East and West for centuries. Gandhi in the East and Thoreau, Emerson, Einstein, and others in the West found within its pages deep wisdom, comfort, and contemporary applications to their lives and times. The Gita ranks with the Bible, Dhammapada, Dao De Jing, Qu’ran, and other significant sacred books as a universal source teaching that transcends sectarian religions. In addition, the Bhagavad Gita—along with the Yogasutras—is one of the two primary foundational books on the yoga path, aspects of which have become wildly popular in the West in recent decades. The Gita has been translated and commented on by great Eastern teachers, such as Shankara (eighth century) and Ramanuja (eleventh century), but also by an ever-increasing group of Western seekers and teachers up to the present day. This new translation and commentary on the Gita is the first in a series of books produced by the Oxford Centre of Hindu Studies (OCHS), a Recognised Independent Centre of the University of Oxford. The OCHS Gita is simultaneously authoritative, academically sound, and accessible for inquiring students and seekers. Each chapter has an English translation of the verses, explores main themes, and explains how the knowledge is relevant and applicable to our twenty-first-century world.

“Beyond Race: The Bhagavad-gita in Black and White” is an indispensable aid for anyone seeking to transcend America’s oppressive race-consciousness. Each section of Beyond Race is fashioned after the eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad-gita, the essence of India’s Vedic wisdom and one of the great spiritual and philosophical classics of the world. Along with synopses of each Gita chapter, Beyond Race includes commentary culled from Mr. Byrd’s 1995-2001 Interracial Voice editorials. During or after each chapter’s “race” commentary, is included a specific Gita verse for the purpose of expanding on that commentary from the Vedic perspective.
In both East and West, the Bhagavad Gita the "Song of the Lord" is considered the most important work of ancient Sanskrit literature. Part of the great epic poem the Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita tells the story of Arjuna, a great warrior and prince, who on the eve of battle experiences doubt and fear at the fighting to come. His charioteer, however, is none other than Lord Krishna, who not only strengthens his heart for battle, but explains to him the many paths of yoga, before revealing himself in all his glory as God incarnate. The Gita has been translated into numerous languages, and many commentaries have been written, especially in India. In an accessible manner, Wilfried Huchzermeyer and Jutta Zimmermann introduce the timeless wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, and show how it provides essential insights into the world of yoga."
Secrets of Living is based on the teachings of Bhagawad Gita, one of the most widely read books in the world. In today's busy life, we hardly get any time to meditate deeper into the meaning and purpose of life. We tend to take certain things for granted such as our status, wealth, educational achievements, etc.and also presume that they will be given to us in our next birth. But scriptures do not endorse this view. All our possessions, or the lack of them, are the result of our karma in the previous births. We rewrite our destiny everyday for our future births. Hence we should decide our actions in accordance with the teachings of our scriptures and not allow our materialistic aspirations to distort our understanding and conduct in this world. Also one should not wait till the old age to start reading the scriptures. The right age to read scriptures is as early as one gets the consciousness so as to minimize the loss of deep, illuminating thoughts which an insightful reading of Bhagavad Gita entails and hence, engage in righteous actions. The divine wisdom of Lord Krishna, encapsulated in the Bhagavad Gita, is addressed to each and evert individual to help solving perplexing problems and progress towards a brighter future.
