A fully illustrated, award-winning summary study of the world's best selling Bhagavad-gita.
Acclaimed by scholars for its authenticity, clarity, and brilliant photographs, Bhagavad-gita: A Photographic Essay reveals and brings to life the Gita's spiritual wisdom and its beautiful themes of harmony and purpose, work and attitude, love and reciprocation. We're challenged and inspired through its answers to probing questions: What is my identity beyond the body and mind? What is my purpose? How can I be satisfied while in the midst of a turbulent world? Why is life worth living? What happens after death?
"In this world," the Gita boldly declares, "there is nothing so sublime and pure as transcendental knowledge. Such knowledge is the mature fruit of all mysticism." For those who dare to align their consciousness with that of the Divine's, the Gita's wisdom offers a fulfilling life of inner serenity, balance, and love. In Bhagavad-gita: A Photographic Essay, the depth, resonance, and potency of the original Sanskrit text remains intact as it calls upon each of us to fulfill our highest potential.
