- THE BHAGAVAD GITA - According to Gandhi
DetailsA sloka-by-sloka interpretation of one of the world's most enduring and influential spiritual texts of the twentieth century.The Bhagavad Gita is a profound religious text, and Gandhi's commentary on the Gita is regarded as among the most important of the twentieth century. Gandhi addresses the issues he felt most directly affected the spiritual lives of common people. In his own words his interpretation (of the Gita) is designed for the common man, 'one who has little or no literary equipment, who has neither the time nor the desire to read the Gita in the original, and yet who stands in need of its support'.Gandhi's Gita is also a call to detached service, a 'gospel of selfless action'. It is, in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, 'an empire of thought' that everyone can benefit from, regardless of religion, beliefs or background.It is lucid, simple and clearly indicative of the deep wisdom of the one of the greatest human beings who ever walked this planet.ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India. Employing non-violent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for non-violence, civil rights and freedom across the world.
