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.

“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.
The largest-selling edition of the Gita in the Western world, Bhagavad-gita As It Is is more than a book. It is alive with knowledge and devotion; thus it has the power to change your life for the better. Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India's spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries. In translating the Gita, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has remained loyal to the intended meaning of Krishna's words, and thus he has unlocked all the secrets of the ancient knowledge of the Gita and placed them before us as an exciting opportunity for self-improvement and spiritual fulfillment. The Gita is a conversation between Krishna and His dear friend Arjuna. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of his life? Where is he going after death? In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path.
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."
The Gita brings to light the negative and positive tendencies that lie within. They represent your higher aspiration and lower desire. Lord Krishna directs you to conquer desire and regain the supreme Self. The state of Godhood. The book comprises the text, transliteration, word-meaning, translation and commentary. A unique contribution is the topic-wise division of each chapter. It helps capture the thought-flow and message in the text.
For centuries, readers have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths. As profound and powerful as this classic text has been for generations of seekers, integrating its lessons into the ordinary patterns of our lives can ultimately seem beyond our reach. Now, in a fascinating series of reflections, anecdotes, stories, and exercises, Ram Dass gives us a unique and accessible road map for experiencing divinity in everyday life. In the engaging, conversational style that has made his teachings so popular for decades, Ram Dass traces our journey of consciousness as it is reflected in one of Hinduism’s most sacred texts. The Gita teaches a system of yogas, or “paths for coming to union with God.” In Paths to God, Ram Dass brings the heart of that system to light for a Western audience and translates the Gita’s principles into the manual for living the yoga of contemporary life. While being a guide to the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, Paths to God is also a template for expanding our definition of ourselves and allowing us to appreciate a new level of meaning in our lives.
