The Gita is one of the profoundest books of Indian spirituality. It is special in its structure of thought and in its language. It does not seek to confine itself to any one school or religious view but in fact, “there is a wide, undulating, encircling movement of ideas which is the manifestation of a vast synthetic mind and a rich synthetic experience… It does not cleave asunder, but reconciles and unifies.”

Studying, understanding or simply listening to the Gita forms a part of life for millions of people not just in India but world over. Many commentaries have been written, giving diverse interpretations of the Gita. In Sri Aurobindo’s phenomenal work titled ‘Essays on the Gita’, we enter into the spirit of the Gita and look at the truth with a deep insight.

The CD therefore contains a variety of material, presented in a manner which is easily accessible and usable. It contains the following sections:

  1. The entire text of the Gita. The verses are given both in Devanagari and Roman transliteration followed by English translation, anvaya (the prose order of the Sanskrit words) and word by word meaning. The verses referred to by Sri Aurobindo in his Essays on the Gita have references beside them. One can click on these references and access the respective pages of the Essays. Some of the verses are also accompanied by brief excerpts from the Essays, to elucidate further the deeper import contained in these particular verses.
