Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change people's lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita: Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda shares the profound insights of Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by one of his few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda.

I listen to this book as i drive to and from work and other places. It has had an amazing influence, helping to restore my attention to its best places and attitudes. It also has helped tremendously in sorting out some particular practical matters i have been pondering lately about my path of spiritual growth.

There seem to be a few errors in the audio book--an entire segment beginning around 4 hours and 43 minutes or so is definitely repeated--but then, none of this is anything that doesn't bear repeating anyway. This book is both enjoyable and edifying to me.
