A contemporary interpretation of a classic of ancient wisdom. Have you ever asked the purpose of life or who you are? Do you seek peace of mind? Here is an invitation to discover the essential wisdom of yoga for today's world. The Bhagavad Gita is an encounter without parallel in world literature. At its heart is a conversation between the soul and God. This new edition is the first to be produced from a home-grown British Hindu, aimed at a contemporary Western audience. It includes the specially commissioned drawings of the English artist Charles Newington. Ranchor Prime's version adopts a non-sectarian approach, making the Gita relevant to those of all religions or none, and emphasising the link between religion and self-development. It is distinguished by its easy accessibility. His section-by-section commentary opens the text to the spiritual seeker. He never loses sight of the audience for his book, and that he wants his readers to understand the Gita in a personal way.
