Great commentaries about the Gita. Includes a lot about meditation. Very good for contemplative reading. Anything by Easwaran is great.
Please do yourself a favor and read all three volumes. They will change your life for the better.
Excellent book to read. Any of the books written by Sri Eknath Easwarn are excellent material to read and assimilate in daily life. Being an English teacher, his style of writing is captivating and he gives wonderful stories to read and remember. Must read for anyone who wants to know how to implement the teachings of Gita in their daily life.
A resource to get back to when I feel lost.
makes you feel like you can do anything. but also makes you feel stupid for not realizing these things on your own
Drew and I read this most mornings. It's a great way to start the day.

A really good practical handbook to be read slowly and savored.
A beautiful interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita.
