The Bhagavat Gita, As-It-Is

By His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

  

The largest-selling edition of the Gita in the Western world, Bhagavad-Gita As It Is is more than a book.  It is alive with knowledge and devotion; thus it has the power to change your life for the better.

Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India’s spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries.

You may also keep the ancient wisdom of India with you wherever you go. Ideal for travel – Keep this little Gita in your car, bring it to work, or slip it into your purse.
