This revelation of India's best-loved scripture approaches it from an entirely fresh perspective, showing its deep allegorical meaning as well as its down-to-earth practicality. The themes presented are universal: how to achieve victory in life in union with the divine; how to prepare for life's "final exam", death, and what happens afterward; and how to triumph over all pain and suffering.

Bhagavad Gita shows the path for freedom from human sufferings.
Author Swami Kriyananda explained it very clearly.
Did not like so many things about it. Geeta is about a beautiful message give to mankind by God but the author focuses more on his Guru's accomplishments and on trying to please audience of various religions (perhaps because they have a foundation and they are promoting it through this book). the author and Geeta emphasizes on leaving the ego. there is no "I". yet at one point the author claims his Guru was Arjuna and his Guru was Krishna in previous incarnations. I see a big "I" there. If you are seeking just Geeta, this book is not for you. I rather like "Geeta - a walkthrough for Westerns" by Jack Hawley. read it couple of months. though I am Indian and a Hindu but still Jack Hawley's book delivered undiluted Geeta.
Quite possibly the most annoying narrator I have ever listened to. I had to stop listening because of the guy's voice. Too bad, because the subject material is really interesting.
If you are looking for an overview of the Bhagavad Gita do not buy this book.
Leave this book to the zealots and the scholars.
it is what it is.
Disappointment wouldn't have bought this book if I had known what I know now.
Audible obsessed lifelong learner.
This book tells the horrific story of Hiroshima and Nagasaki through the eyes of those who were there and lived long enough to tell their stories. The eye witness accounts are far more gruesome than King, Craven, Slade or any other horror writer could ever imagine. Chilling to think The bomb over Hiroshima malfunctioned delivering less than one third of its planned devastation and Nagasaki missed a direct hit or the devastation would have been far greater. The point of one of the survivors years later who told an audience it didn't matter who dropped the bomb because we as a world civilization allowed the technology and escalation that lead to it was very thought provoking.
this is worthless book... don't ever give reference from any other religious book.
Geetha is Stand alone book, never get a word Bible or something .grrrrrr
Talk only about Geetha and nothing else from other Religion.
He is Fox in in Sheep skin, don't preach Bible on tha name of Geetha .
This books shows one of the clear contrasts between the abrahamic and eastern faith in the role and nature of good. There is no mention of the angry and vengeful god but the predominant focus is on a form of pseudoscientific explanation for the soul and it's interaction with the body. A nice read for any enthusiast in religion.
"Gita that touches your life!!!"
One of the best versions of Gita i have heard. Actually very practical, informative and inspiring.
Deep, very profound and full of useful wisdom. But at the same time, must be absorbed and gathered through moderation, and with mere caution.
