About the Book:
The Bhagavad Gita contains words of wisdom and practical teachings that contain the answers to problems of the present-day life. It guides the lives of people all over the world. Instead of aspiring for Moksha as the ultimate goal of life, as suggested in the Gita, the author has pleaded that every one of us must pray for God’s blessings to come time and again with increasingly greater potential to render services to the humanity in distress. This world is not a Maya, but a kind of dynamic reality. This is the first book of its kind on the Gita using sociological perspective, wherein stimulating and exciting issues have been raised on various subjects for open-minded readers to have a further insight into the problems and worries concerning religion and spirituality. The Bhagavad Gita comprises the timeless doctrine of universal truth. It is a fit companion for lifetime.
