Eastern Thought and the Gita

Eastern Thought and the Gita

ByGerard D C Kuiken

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
To understand the Gita, a concise discussion of Eastern Thought is given first, followed by the Original Gita, which predates the Bhagavad Gita, the classic epic poem included in the Mahabharata. Compared to the 209 verses of the Original Gita, many verses in the Bhagavad Gita are interpolated, but 319 of its 700 verses can be considered as its core. This core is not concerned with the battle that is dominant in the Bhagavad Gita. The verses in the Original Gita are commented on, with a new literal translation of the 319 core verses in the Bhagavad Gita. All 319 verses are given in Sanskrit in transliterated form with a word-for-word translation, and the reader without any knowledge of Sanskrit is able to make his own translation, or to obtain the deeper meaning of many words by consulting the 240 page dictionary.
