Description

About the Book

The Bhagavad Gita is Vedic wisdom shared by Krishna to Arjuna in the Mahabharata, just beforethe war is about to begin. Traditionally, The Gita has been presented as a text that focuses onself-realization. But My Gita, by acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik, is different. In a self-obsessed (and selfie-obsessed) world, My Gita focuses, instead, on relationships.My Gita examines the myriad ways we humans connect socially, with one another and with ourown selves, and the lack of faith in a larger intangible reality, which leads to a tug-of-war betweenour outside and inside selves. It shows how, as long as we feel insecure and cling (moha), weare trapped. As soon as we let go, we are liberated (moksha). And the path towards letting go isnot about withdrawing from the world, but allowing things that drift in and letting go of thingsthat drift away, like watching the waves move in and out of the beach. It is about appreciatingothers' viewpoints and expanding our minds. It is knowing the difference between violence andviolation. After all, even the Mahabharata is essentially about family, negotiated relationships andquarrels over property.
