        The Bhagavad-gita is a classic of Indian spiritual literature, and has remained an important book for thousands of years. Many western poets and philosophers have been influenced by its deep insights and its timeless wisdom. Many of the great spiritual teachers of India have also written commentaries on it. It is considered the core of some of the deepest levels of spiritual knowledge known to humanity. So, this is a very powerful book.

        This introduction, using numerous verses, shows many of the reasons why it has kept its popularity, and how many of its topics and the guidance that we find within it can easily be applied today, not only for our spiritual development, but for solving common everyday problems as well. Everyone can benefit from it.

        Some of the topics within this present volume include:

        The Bhagavad-gita and Principles for Good Management and Leadership; Good Work Ethics; Dealing with Stress; How to Attain Peace of Mind; Heightening Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem; Dealing with Sorrow and Death; Attaining Fearlessness; As a Psychological Guide; Meditation According to Bhagavad-gita; The Supreme Yoga; Bhagavad-gita as a Key to Spiritual Enlightenment; Bhagavad-gita and Establishing World Peace; Thirty-one Days to Liberation on the Vedic Path based on Bhagavad-gita; The Gita’s Ultimate Purpose; What should be your next step; and much more.
