about this item

A new translation of the great classic--with wide-ranging, multi-traditional commentary that emphasizes its practical advice for living with integrity.“All there is is Krishna.”   Upon hearing this famous and enigmatic line from the Gita’s seventh chapter when he was a boy, Ravi Ravindra embarked on a journey to understand its deep meaning.  The search led him far beyond the tradition from which the text originally arose to an exploration of world mystical wisdom, including  Zen, Christianity, Yoga, and particularly the teachings of J. Krishnamurti and G. I. Gurdjieff.  Dr. Ravindra’s  fresh prose translation with wide-ranging commentary, is the fruit of that lifelong process.  It stands out from the many other versions with its assertion that the Bhagavad Gita is at heart a universal guide to navigating the battle of life required of each and every one of us. It is through that navigation, he shows, that we can discover and connect with the Krishna deep within ourselves:  The Eternal Witness who is above the battle, and who is, ultimately and joyfully, all there is.
