Publisher's Summary

For centuries, people have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths. As profound and powerful as this classic text has been for generations of seekers, integrating its lessons into the ordinary patterns of our lives can ultimately seem beyond our reach.

Now, in a fascinating series of reflections, anecdotes, stories, and exercises, Ram Dass gives us a unique and accessible road map for experiencing divinity in everyday life. In the engaging, conversational style that has made his teachings so popular for decades, Ram Dass traces our journey of consciousness as it is reflected in one of Hinduism's most sacred texts. The Gita teaches a system of yogas, or "paths for coming to union with God."

In Paths to God, Ram Dass brings the heart of that system to light for a Western audience and translates the Gita's principles into the manual for living the yoga of contemporary life.

While being a guide to the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, Paths to God is also a template for expanding our definition of ourselves and allowing us to appreciate a new level of meaning in our lives.

Well, I guess that's this books work taken care of

This book isn't so much about the Bhagavad Gita as it is one mans spiritual journey, and some advice for others seeking a larger role for the spiritual life.

I really enjoyed this book. It is much more than just some of principles of the bhagavad gita. It gives practical advice on raising your awareness. This book also offers a storyline which helps bring it home.

Great resource for students of The Gita

As the other reviewer notes, this is not an analysis of the Gita. It is a take on using the Gita in your life and spiritual progress. I have read the Gita many times and read various interpretations of the text. I would like this book LESS if it were an interpretation, I do not need more analysis of the text at this point. This is for those seeking to put the teachings of the Gita into action in their own loves. Beautiful book and I love it.
