The India paperback of 388-page book is to be seen as a 'restatement of the truths of eternity in the accents of our time'. The book appears voluminous because of the verses of the Gita in the Roman script of transliteration of original Sanskrit Shlokas to make the 'great scripture a living value to mankind'.
According to the scripter the person has to fight the forces of darkness in the form of lust, ego, passion, anger, and greed which bar the way to the higher levels of awareness. According to the author the Gita affirms that we can spiritualize human nature to the level of divinity.
The author also finds the Gita as a comprehensive and multi-dimensional Yoga Sastra that shows various paths for the soul’s development and ascent into the divine. As he puts it, “The different Yogas are special applications of the inner discipline which lead to the liberation of the soul and a new understanding of the unity and meaning of mankind.” The Gita mandates action with the 'inner life anchored in the eternal spirit'.
Another good aspect of the book is introductory essay with transliterated Sanskrit text and explanatory notes on different pages. The book provides a good read for knowing phenomenal lessons of life and philosophy of living with a universal appeal.
