The Bhagavad Gita, "The Song of the Lord", is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Easwaran's reliable and accessible version has consistently been the best-selling translation. Easwaran's introduction places the Gita in its historical setting and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Chapter introductions give clear explanations of key concepts in that chapter.

I found it very beneficial. Narration was very good, but the subject matter needed some focus and concentration. To learn in depth then need to sit down and listen and write notes or points.

Good book. Message is clear, but how one should clear should be very individual. It is quite a general view in the sense it cannot be applied by everyone. If one is living alone than it maybe fine, but if one lives with family or extended family, than it may not be ideal. Therefore it comes down to ones own discovery or path. I did benefit from reading the book.

What would you focus on if you were no longer weighed down by your unwanted responsibilities? If you want to add something meaningful to your life, like traveling to exotic places, composing beautiful music, or experiencing a new friendship in a foreign language, you will need to figure out how to eliminate other things from your daily routine.

When I learn 5 take home messages from an audible book then it is a great book for me. Fairly well written and narration was clear.
