Essence of Gita
This is a small booklet of less than 40 verses of the Gita with short notes to convey the essence of the Gita.
This booklet can serve as a primer or an introduction to the Gita. It can also be used for daily or occasional chanting. It is formatted so that it can be printed in booklet form in to neat 28 page booklet including a cover page.
Swami Paramarthananda Saraswathi has written a translation of the Bhagavad Gita. It has chapter summaries, word-by-word meaning and verse meaning. For sake of convenience, the book comes as 10 parts with a few chapters in each part. This is used by the students of Swamiji in his Gita classes.
We found that an authoritative summary of the Gita is needed for people who are interested in the Gita, but are not ready to read the full book verse by verse. So the students of Vivekananda Study Circle at IISc Bangalore prepared this collection of the summaries from the book by Swami Parmarthanandaji. We hope this is useful to everyone who is interested in the Gita.
