"How to be dear to God!
In the 12th chapter of the Gita, in verses 13 to 20, Sri Krishna tells about the 43 attributes, emotions and values, which are dear to God, and the presence of which in a person makes him dear to God. This book discusses these attributes, emotions and values in detail, and brings out their real import for today’s India and the world.
This book is not only on religion and spirituality. Through these verses, it comes to grips with some of the burning issues of human existence on the Indian subcontinent – poverty, unemployment, corruption, terrorism, casteism, communalism, and work-culture, and tries to find in light of the Gita, the solutions. Gita is, after all, not a sectional treatise, nor a mere religious discourse; it on the other hand seeks to address the human existence in its entirety.
For knowing how dear you are to God, you may like to use the SELF-ASSESSMENT TOOL at the end of the book."
