    About the Book:

    This “Book of Golden words” called the Bhagavad Gita is based on the words my Guru, Acharya, saints, sages, tattva-vitts and great scholars on the bank of river Ganga. Through this book, I have attempted to give the reader a feel of studying Vedanta ina traditional Gurukulam. Since self-knowledge can only be gained by self, we are always short of words in unfolding the scriptures. I have tried to explain the meaning of the verses through different references, which makes the reader understand the meaning easily. Gaining self-knowledge is a karma that involves a lot of insight, analysing, logical thinking and examining. Words look very simple but under-standing their meaning requires a lot of effort. Self-knowledge is also a transfer of positive energy which is transferred through words. And here, I have tried to give the meaning after analysing words by different Gurus and acharyas. Since I also teach in Japanese medium, my insight into meaning is not limited to dictionary translation, but goes beyond and I try to relate through phrases and examples. This process of understanding and giving words to the verses and hidden words in verses of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita will go on till I die. After doing courses and staying in ashram, a shishya gains a different vision. Everything changes, this Samsara (world) doesn’t attract one anymore. Silence becomes a gift. One starts enjoying Brahman’s creation and values them more day by day. Living a conscious life and seeing your connection with Brahman, who blesses you with his powers; you get energised and rejuvenated. You value life and live every moment of it in a state of Bliss. That’s the power of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita.
