Description

Unlike all available commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita, which interpret it in the Mahabharata epic context, this book interprets it in the historical context. This context has to do with historical processes and events that led to the creation of the Original Gita, known as Arjuna Vishada, and its subsequent expansion to the revered theistic-philosophical masterpiece known as the Bhagavad Gita-Upanishad. It deals with the questions such as who created the Original Gita, when, and for what specific purpose? Why did Upanishadists add shlokas to this 77-shloka long metaphoric poem? How did Bhagavatas enter into this equation? Without the knowledge of the historical context of shlokas related to these three distinct Dharmas based on three distinct pairs of doctrines, it is impossible to reveal the true intent and spirit of the Bhagavad Gita.

About the Author

The author is a retired psychiatrist living in the U.S. who was drawn into the study of the Bhagavad Gita about 24 years ago. His initial goal was to analyze the ancient methods of resolution of mental conflict as exemplified by that of Arjuna on the battlefield. However, because of the self-contradicting nature of the text, he realized that there must be another context to the Bhagavad Gita -the historical. Over 15 years of diligent research went into this book. The author's previous works are: Servants, Not Masters: A Guide for Consumer Activists in India (1987); and Is Your Balloon About to Pop? Owner?s Manual for the Stressed Mind (2007, Amazon.com).
