The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living, Volume 1: The End of Sorrow

Eknath Easwaran is a foremost translator and interpreter of the much-loved
Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita. He liked to say that his verse-by-verse
commentary grew like a tree issuing directly from his life, which was so rooted
in the Gita that he found a deep understanding of its teachings in the most
everyday experiences – sharing a treat with young children, walking with friends
down a busy street, or watching a mime in San Francisco’s Union Square.

Easwaran translates each verse, relates it to our modern lives through stories
and anecdotes, and gives us spiritual exercises that we can use every day.
This first volume in a three-volume set covers chapters 1–6 of the Gita, and
concentrates on the individual: the nature of our innermost Self, how it can be
discovered in the depths of consciousness, and how this discovery transforms
daily life. The introduction includes instructions in Easwaran’s universal method
of passage meditation.
