Basic Bhagavad-Gita: An Introduction to Bhagavat Vedanta


This comprehensive guide to the Bhagavad-Gita (“Song of God”) provides an accessible and readable introduction to yoga philosophy. Sravaniya DiPecoraro, an experienced yoga teacher, astrologer and occult specialist, explains the basic principles of Vedanta, debunks popular myths and shows how an understanding of the five main subjects of the text helps the reader to penetrate the often mysterious workings of karma and fate, and understand the relationship between the self and the Higher Self.

This book deals with complex ideas clearly, provocatively and authoritatively and yet always in line with the translations, commentaries and all teachings of A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. It succinctly illustrates some of the similarities and differences among major philosophical schools East and West. It grasps the common thread running through them and provides the reader with keys for understanding the essential spiritual teachings of yoga.
