The Bhagavad Gita (Hindi Pocket Edition) Rs 120
Paramhansa Yogananda’s revelation of India’s best-loved scripture brought an entirely fresh perspective. This pocket edition—a Gita junior—highlights the verses themselves, being limited to them almost entirely.
This is the first opportunity to have Swami Kriyananda’s complete Bhagavad Gita, itself in Hindi.
Most of the verses (slokas) in this edition of the Bhagavad Gita have already appeared in Swamiji’s much larger book The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda. However, some of the Gita verses were intentionally left out of the earlier publication. Swamiji’s omitted slokas include most of Chapter One, which he merely summarized, and the first ten verses of Chapter Two. The reason he left out these slokas was, as he describes in the preface to this pocket Gita, that the omitted verses “form, in themselves, an almost complete dissertation”.
Though small in size, this edition of the Gita is pierced through with shafts of light from a towering spiritual figure—Yogananda. With this volume, India’s sacred scripture is at your fingertips for inspiration on your own daily battleground of life.
Swami Kriyananda's quotes
~ You will find peace not by trying to escape your problems, but by confronting them courageously. You will find peace not in denial, but in victory.
~ Leadership is an opportunity to serve. It is not a trumpet call to self-importance.
~ Happiness is an attitude of mind, born of the simple determination to be happy under all outward circumstances.
~ Happiness is not a brilliant climax to years of grim struggle and anxiety. It is a long succession of little decisions simply to be happy in the moment.
~ The secret of happiness is the determination to be happy always, rather than wait for outer circumstances to make one happy.
~ Surround yourself, wherever you go, with an aura of peacefulness. Walk consciously in that light of peace.
~ Possession of material riches, without inner peace, is like dying of thirst while bathing in a lake. If material poverty is to be avoided, spiritual poverty is to be abhorred! It is spiritual poverty, not material lack, that lies at the core of all human suffering.
~ “Where motion ceases," the Master said, "God begins.”
