Critic Reviews

“Simon Haas has done it again. With the clear perception of a sage, he has retold this ancient classic, the Bhagavad Gita, in a way everyone can understand.” (Dr. Richard A. Masla, founder of YogaVeda School of Yoga & Ayurveda)

“From a little girl at Heathrow airport and a dog on the Yorkshire Moors, to holy men in crematoriums and Indian monkeys, we hear inspiring stories sure to open our hearts and minds in learning to appreciate the potential power in darkness to rewrite our own life stories from ones of fear and confusion into those of love and compassion.” (Catherine L. Schweig, chief editor of Goddess: When She Rules [Golden Dragonfly Press, 2017] and author of over 50 articles on yoga and the Bhagavad Gita)

“This is an authoritative, metaphysical book on yoga that takes one beyond the needs of the body and mind and situates one in spiritual luminescence. What more can a discerning reader ask for?” (Steven J. Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa), author of some 30 books on the Bhakti tradition and related subjects; senior editor of the Journal of Vaishnava Studies; and associate editor of Back to Godhead magazine)

Changing Lives

This book is the most incredible, life changing, and motivating book I have ever read. The book itself is captivating, exciting, and uplifting to all types of readers. It makes you really start to value all of the moments in your life, and to even appreciate the negative moments we experience. I recommended this book to a friend who suffers from depression, and this book changed her life. She started to take the books key messages into her life and she has now transformed into a new person. The book is relatable to all types of people and is a good and MUST read for everyone! It was nice to be able to listen to the audio, very helpful especially because I like to knit, so I was able to listen to this book and knit at the same time!

Entertaining, Inspiring and Transformative

This book is a masterpiece for transforming one's pain and 'dark night' into a powerful spiritual journey. It expertly takes the wisdom from the classic text of the Bhagavad Gita and makes it, not only easy to understand but also relevant to us in our life now. The compilation of many stories was intriguing and felt like an exquisite mystical journey of both eastern monasticism and deep self-help introspection.
