An Illuminating Book from an Enlightened Author,
This review is from: The End of Sorrow: The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Volume I [India's timeless and practical scripture presented as a manual for everyday use] (Paperback)
This book is one of the texts for my Eastern Spirituality class and it has made what could have been very difficult for Christians to understand (the Bhagavad Gita) into something simple and yet life-challenging at the same time. The Gita is indeed central to Hindu thought, and yet Christians can find much of value in it. Easwaran's modern translation and commentary can help any Christian who wants to go deeper into the spiritual life and follow the principles of Christ. Over and over again, meditation/prayer and service to others are emphasized, and if you have the discipline to read and apply these things to your own life it will be renewed and transformed.
