    All this book made me want to do was read the whole Mahabharata. For what is one set of texts in a whole story of interesting characters and events? I get it. It is a religious work. I have no problem with religious works of any kind. In fact I treasure them. But the bible without the ...

    A powerful scripture. Full of light and wisdom. I was struck by how relevant I found it. How moving it was. And how it filled me with a hunger to delve deeper into spiritual things. It's given me much to think about. I particularly liked the introduction which grounded me in some of th...

    It's our expectations that make us unhappy. As Gandhi explained, the Gita is built around the idea that we are not entitled to the fruits of our actions. It's the expectations we form from our actions that lead us astray. It's enough to act according to your yoga. Simply act, without h...

    It's honestly a little hard to fully explain this book. I'm probably going to re-read a few parts to fully grasp the concepts. The Bhagavad-Gita is a sacred religious text, a brilliant collection of life philosophy, and an enthralling story. I actually purchased this book from a group ...
