Highly recommended for anyone and everyone!
Eknath Easwaran's introduction to the concepts of Hinduism is outstanding. The description of Jnana Yoga (path of knowledge), Bhakti Yoga (path of devotion) and Karma Yoga(path of selfless action) is lucid and inspires one to practice. I have combined my readings with regular meditation - Contemplation on the verses, how to apply them and applying effort towards practicing them in your life makes your life meaningful. For readers who are new to Hindu/Buddhist concepts of karma and reincarnation , the introduction has a wealth of information. The description of the three gunas (Tamas, Rajas, Sattva) that influence our personality is exemplary. Having a little bit of a background in Sanskrit, I can draw parallels between 'Sattva guna' and the popular Buddhist term 'BodhiSattva'. I also appreciate the spiritual plane in which the text describes the conversation between Arjuna and Krishna - as something every individual needs to have with his Self in the depths of consciousness. Each chapter in the book is preceded by chapter introductions that add a lot of value to the text.
In short, a great book with meaningful and practical teachings which can be practiced by a person on any path. I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to read this book.
