Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change people's lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita shares the profound insights of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by his direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda. This commentary unlocks the Gita's depthless wisdom with striking clarity, inspiration, and hope for a modern audience.
""It is doubtful that there has been a more important spiritual writing in the past 50 years than this soul-stirring, monumental work. Through a mind blessed with special clarity, Swami Kriyananda has brought us his most vivid memories of the explanations by Paramhansa Yogananda of the Bhagavad Gita, allowing us to hear with greater vibrancy than ever before the Melodies of the Divine. At last the "Lord’s Song" is not a mystery to our mind, but music to our ears! What a gift! What a treasure! My personal gratitude to Swami Kriyananda shall be everlasting." —Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations with God"From the Author :
Kriyananda was recently appointed to membership in the prestigious Club of Budapest, joining such luminaries as the Dalai Lama.
