'The Gita Way' is an irreligious take on the tenets of the Bhagavad Gita. Without delving into either mythological or God-centric discourse, the book attempts to understand and explain various insights from the Gita through, in the author's words, derived theory and application. The Gita Way attempts to shed light on matters of self-realisation, and identifying and followi ...more

This is one of the best book I've come across in a long time. That's saying a lot given what it has to compete with and given the times we live in, there can't be a better time for this book to get publish. This book is just awesome. It has some really spiritual parable to which we can easily correlate to. One of the best parts about this book is that just when you think it couldn't get any more entertaining or profound, it surprises you by being even more of both. Overall a great work and prese ...more

I found this book extremely motivational. It provides solutions to everyday problems and guides a way in right direction. We can relate our daily life situations with Gita. Author has done wonderful job by explaining concept of “self-realisation” and making us understand purpose in life in Gita way.
This book has given me real insights on goal-setting, developing strength and finding the right way to make the right decisions. Wonderful book, must read. Highly recommended.

Heard a lot about the Gita and its teachings but was always skeptical to start reading it. This particular book makes so much sense from the first ten pages that you are hooked. I read and then re read it again to see how all the teachings applied to real life.

The author may have intended to address a wide range of audience, some of whom may not be familiar with the basic tenets of Hindu philosophy.

A very new and kind approach to Gita. I am glad that for the first time we aren't being religion-centric. I recommend it to all!

long story short: Don't read if you already appreciate Gita. This book is for those who have never read the original Gita.

After reading certain good books by Indian authors about Mahabharata, I thought this book would be as good. But it is not. For starters, Bhagwad Gita in it's original form is in no way a religious text, it is a purely philosophical work so there is no need for a non religious interpretation of Gita. Just stay clear of the religious translations of the epic. If you have read t

Excellent and mind blowing conversion of Gita

The book is very simple translation from Gita to practical implications of it in our real life. Both the authors have written in very nice and concious manner.

Good

Good book for general information about gita, informative and logical. Nice for beginners about mythology and people interested about knowing gita.

Not an average book that you can finish in a day or two. It is kind of working through the past and present. Analyze each chapter and follow what the author is trying to say, apply it to your life (try to relate to your material or spiritual life), and then move to next page/chapter.
A bit tough mental exercise, this is a good book where the author(s) present Gita in an unusual way so that even the people having no knowledge of the original can understand concepts of life.

I have not read any other version of the Bhagavad Gita. I picked up the current book on recommendation from my professor at IIM Bangalore. The author explains the deep philosophy of the Gita in lucid language.

I refer to Bhagwad Gita whenever I am confused. I find this book holds true & teaches what can't be learnt through text books.

I always liked the idea of performing and staying in present and then attaining nirvana, rather than leaving your role and responsibilities to reach the goal. The Gita explains just that.

“Gita mentions supreme goal of humankind is moksha, the realisation with supreme spirit. The Gita Way conceptually blends it to the supreme purpose of life. Hence, to stay on the path of the supreme goal, one has to behold supreme goal in heart and achieve the same by following means: 1. Mediation with a Sharp Intellect 2. Discipline of Knowledge 3. Discipline of Action (Karma Yoga)” 1 likes
