The Bhagavad Gita, an ancient and celebrated wisdom book, explains yoga as a spiritual path universally accessible to anyone. Each of the Gita’s eighteen chapters explores a different form of yoga—from action to meditation, from mind yoga to heart yoga. Dr. Sutton’s new translation, clear commentary and study guide is especially valuable to yoga and academic teachers and students, and will be welcomed to Yoga Teacher Training courses and University World Religion and Hindu Studies courses.
The Bhagavad Gita, which was spoken perhaps five millennia ago and whose written form has been extant for over 2,000 years, has inspired new generations of seekers East and West for centuries, including Emerson and Thoreau, Gandhi and Einstein.
The Gita and Yoga Sutras comprise the two primary foundational books on the yoga path, aspects of which have become wildly popular in the West in recent decades.
