 यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य ग्लानिर्भवति भारत।
अभ्युत्थानमधर्मस्य तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम् ॥४-७॥

धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय सम्भवामि युगे युगे ॥

Shrimad Bhagavad Gita

This shloka from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita translates to “I come, I come, when there is a loss of righteousness I come when the inequity increases, then I come to protect the gentlemen, to destroy the wicked, I come to establish the righteousness and I am born in the age of era”.

He questions the purpose of war and the violence and death the war will cause in the battle against his kin, he seeks Krishna’s counsel, whose answers and discourse constitute the Bhagavad Gita.

Books on Srimad Bhagavad Gita

Bhagavad Gita: The Dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna: Including Introduction, Sanskrit Text, Roman Transliteration, English Translation, and Commentaries

Fraught with feelings of self-doubt and hopelessness, a great warrior collapses in self-defeat, posing questions for his charioteer, just before the immense battle begins on the plain of Kurushetra. It is as if there was an interruption of the epic story of the Mahabharata, which pauses dramatically for the dialogue between the teacher, Sri Krishna, and his disciple, Arjuna, which is known as the Bhagavad Gita. This dialogue has been handed down as part of the oral Vedic tradition in an unbroken line of knowledge for more than 5000 years. Despite such antiquity, Arjuna’s questions remain just as relevant today, because the human sense of insufficiency and desire for fulfillment are timeless. Fortunately for Arjuna and all of us, the solution is also timeless. Sri Krishna teaches him the knowledge about the ultimate truth of the Self, the essential nature of the human being, covering the topics of dharma (appropriate action to fulfill what must be done) and yoga (to do so unmoved by the results of such action) while keeping a vision of Isvara (the Cause and the Order that is the Universe) to attain moksha, (final liberation) from the human sense of limitation. With an unwavering dedication to the original Sanskrit and the tradition of Advaita Vedanta, Gloria Arieira unfolds the beauty and clarity of the message that is the Bhagavad Gita the very knowledge of the Self that removed Arjuna’s confusion, allowing him to rise to his feet once again.

Self-knowledge transforms human motivation and liberates us from the narrow confines of selfish action to the freedom of serving others. Dr. Rambachan establishes that the Bhagavadgita ideal is not indifference to the world and the severing of human relationships, but love and compassion born out of the identity of oneself with all beings. In a lucid and accessible style, Dr. Rambachan shows how Gita’s teaching makes possible a love that embraces all and infuses each act with compassion.

This volume owes its existence to a pressing sense of need.

The Original Gita: Striving for Oneness with Comments and Related Verses of the Bhagavad Gita

The Original Gita, which predates the Bhagavad Gita, focuses on the basic philosophical and practical essentials of life and living. In this book, dualism is addressed and shown to be illusionary since every pair of opposites implies the third element: the notion of a different implied by both opposites. The discussion of what is an ever-present ‘difference’ in such a triunity and how it impacts everything we perceive is pivotal to awakening to a new dimension of observation. It is in the unseen difference that we become aware of opposites, such as long-short, day-night, and true-false.

In the first part of the book, the questions-What is thought? What is space-time? What is life-death? – are examined in a concise form to give a foundation for the understanding of the philosophy of the Gita. The book includes a glossary for clarification of several germane Sanskrit terms, a bibliography, and an index.
