The latest title in the Essential Wisdom Library, The Bhagavad Gita: The Song of God in Modern English brings the powerful Hindu epic to a new audience. Part of the Mahabharata, the Gita is a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and Lord Krishna. Its verses contain some of the key ideas of Hindu philosophy―Dharma, Moksha, and various yogic practices. Originally written well over a thousand years ago, the Gita has proven to be a timeless source of wisdom, inspiring philosophers and revolutionaries alike in the millennia since it was written.
Viljoen’s retelling is rendered in clear, modern English that beautifully captures the power and depth of the original work. In addition to the retelling of the text, this edition includes a character list, a glossary of important terms, and chapters exploring the history of the Mahabharata and the impact and meaning of the Bhagavad Gita itself. The Bahagavad Gita is an approachable way for today’s readers to engage with one of history's richest spiritual epics
