In My Gita, acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik demystifies The Bhagavad Gita for the contemporary reader. His unique approach - thematic rather than verse by verse - makes the ancient treatise eminently accessible. In a world that seems spellbound by argument over dialogue, vi-vaad over sam-vaad, Devdutt highlights how Krishna nudges Arjuna to understand rather than judge his relationships.

After listening to Jays and reading several other books from the author, I was really looking forward to My Gita. While, this book lived up to its expectations, the narration was extremely disappointing. The narrator was unable to pronounce a lot of the words and names in the book and it took away from truly enjoying the book. I bought the kindle version as well, and will go back to read the book as opposed to the audible version.

In this enthralling retelling of India’s greatest epic - the Mahabharata, originally known as Jaya - Devdutt Pattanaik seamlessly weaves into a single narrative plots from the Sanskrit classic as well as its many folk and regional variants, including the Pandavani of Chattisgarh, Gondhal of Maharashtra, Terukkuttu of Tamil Nadu, and Yakshagana of Karnataka.

This book has made me fall in love with Indian mythology! Dr. Devdutt Pattnaik is an amazing author and narrator. He us able to capture the reader's attention with all of his stories and fun facts. The story is told in such a way that it can be enjoyed hindus and non hindus alike. His narration is crisp and clear. all the narrators did an excellent job. I highly recommend.
