About The Book

The Bhagavad Gita is a message of eternal relevance to the aspiring human being whether he is leading a spiritual life or preparing for it.

Lord Krishna of the Gita represents the inner Godhead, lodged in the heart of every creature, governing and guiding life. Krishna’s call of the flute is a symbol of the Divine’s call to the human soul.

This book is a chapter-by-chapter summary of Sri Aurobindo’s Essays on the Gita and serves as a companion-guide to aid its study.
