About The Book

The aim of this book is not to present a scholarly interpretation of the Bhagvadgita; the aim is to gather from that great book a few insights and to relate them to some of the needs of our own times. The fictional form in which this study has been presented is experimental in character; it was felt that this form might prove convenient in presenting helpful light from the Gita in an exploratory manner on some typical situations of our present day life.

Preface

The aim of this book is not to present a scholarly interpretation of the Bhagvadgita; the aim is to gather from that great book a few insights and to relate them to some of the needs of our own times. The fictional form in which this study has been presented is experimental in character; it was felt that this form might prove convenient in presenting helpful light from the Gita in an exploratory manner on some typical situations of our present day life.

Among various books written on the Gita, the one that has given me true illumination is Sri Aurobindo's "Essays on the Gita", and I shall feel rewarded if readers turn to that book.
