Bhagavad Gita

My Gita commentary is at long last finished, after ten years of diligent attention. I still have to work up a proper introduction, but the ones in my two books are quite good, so it's a matter of cutting and pasting one of these days. In any case the chapters are ready to be read, and there is a wealth of spiritual inspiration to be found here.

Most of my best ideas turn out to be modernizations of the brilliant teachings of my guru, Nitya Chaitanya Yati, many of which have not found their way into print before.

Chapters I and II have now become a book, The Path to the Guru: The Science of Self-Realization According to the Bhagavad Gita. It has an excellent introduction not found here, and is better edited. In deference to the publishers I'm not going to include the final version on my website, but you can certainly get the flavor of it here. Click on "My Second Book" on the toolbar to learn more.

Chapter XI has already been made into a book, Krishna in the Sky with Diamonds. The version you'll find here is also an early effort, whereas the book has been meticulously edited with some good new material. I highly recommend it, for readability if nothing else. Click on "My Book" on the toolbar for some interesting background.

The Gita is the most amazing book on earth, with its secret wisdom hidden in plain sight. I've used Nataraja Guru's translation with minor modifications, as it brings out the meaning most clearly. May it serve you well. Aum.
