At some point in our lives, we all go through some existential questions. It’s when we feel confused about what we are doing with our lives. Or we wrestle with right vs wrong.
The Bhagavad Gita is my favorite book. For me, it contains timeless knowledge presented in an easy way. Some say it probably was a stand-alone book of wisdom on its own. However, knowledge is easier to understand in conversational format. So an entire epic, called Mahabharata, was written to set the stage for this knowledge. And then just one chapter within that huge book is the Bhagavad Gita.
It’s a textual book, thousands of years old. Over the years there are a lot of derivative works on it. I came across this short 10 min version in storybook format, which makes it quite accessible. I have linked to that video above.
Where can I get the full book?
If you would like to learn more, the English translation I like the most is this one: The Bhagavad Gita – translated by Eknath Easwaran
