Bhagavad Gita (Classics of Indian Spirituality), The

In the Bhagavad Gita, Prince Arjuna asks direct, uncompromising  questions of his spiritual guide on the eve of a great battle. In  this best-selling and expanded edition of the most famous --and popular -- of Indian scriptures, Eknath Easwaran contextualizes the book culturally and historically and explains the key concepts of Hindu religious thought and the technical vocabulary of yoga. Chapter introductions, notes, and a glossary help readers understand the book's message. Most importantly, this translation uses simple, clear language to impart the poetry, universality, and timelessness of the Gita's teachings.

Reading this online using Google Books. One of the most abstract of spiritual books, Easwaran has done a marvellous job of translating this into the language of the layman. All my previous attempts at digesting this complex work came to nought but now I would say that this should be your "User Manual for Better Living".
