This book is Dnyaneshwari In Nutshell to acquaint the readers who wish to know the magnum opus of Saint Dnyaneshwar. It is English Explanation and Versification of the 'Dnyaneshwari Nityapatha' compiled by Swami Swaroopananda, Pawas from 'Dnyaneshwari' by Saint Dnyaneshwar.
Saint Dnyaneshwar begins narrating Dnyaneshwari with Namana to the Lord Ganesha, the God who is the most revered of all and beloved of all the Gods. He is the first amongst all, as per the Shastra to receive the Poojanam.
Saint Swami Shri Swaroopananda of Pawas selected certain Ovis from the 9000 plus Ovis and named the selection as Dnyaneshwari Nityaptha. The selection of Swami Swaroopananda, too, takes up this first Ovi to commence his selection of 109 Ovis to highlight the substance of Dnyaneshwari which is a tome of 9000 plus Ovis. Though all the Ovis are sonorous, for a novice it is difficult to grasp their substance at first reading. The venerable Swami, therefore, selected only certain 109 Ovis from the 9000 plus Ovis for the beginner to enable him to comprehend the contents of the entire Dnyaneshwari.
The book goes Ovi by Ovi of his selection and tries to translate their meaning into English language, so far as possible. But, needless to say, it is just not possible to convey every concept of Indian scriptures purely in the English language. Perforce one has to use many Sanskrit words in this venture to understand the 'Dnyaneshwari In Nutshell'. Such words are explained, as far as possible, when needed.
A Glossary of words and terminology employed in the scriptural discourses on Gita and Dnyaneshwari, though not exhaustive, is attached at the end of this book for ease of understanding. A Bibliography of useful books on Gita and Dnyaneshwari and their Yoga and philosophy, too, is appended separately at its end which will be found to be useful by the students who may use the Dnyaneshwari In Nutshell as the jumping board to dive deep into the waters of Gita and Dnyaneshwari.
It may be noted that while translating the relevant verses, their seriatim as per Dnyaneshwari Nityapatha is first shown, followed by the chapter number and verse number from Dnyaneshwari. For easy reference, the verse numbers are taken as per the Dnyaneshwari of late venerable Shri Shankar Vaman Dandekar, aka Shri Mamasaheb Dandekar, the doyen of the Varakari tradition in Maharashtra State. While passing, it has to be mentioned that Shri Mamasaheb Dandekar has appended a most scholarly introduction to his Dnyaneshwari, which is unique in itself for all to study and understand the base of Dnyaneshwari.
