Review By Madhukar Anvekar


Excellent translation, commentary and explanation of terms and concepts by Swami Nikhilananda. A must read for the whole family.

Review By Francisco

A book of books

A book of books. One that you start reading and propells you to the depths of your True Self to realize what has always been and dispell that which you are not. If beggining your journey, go first with Vedānta-sāra. You can compliment both with Swami Sarvapriyananda YouTube sessions on each.

Bhagavad Gita Pocket Book

I think this is the perfect book. Not just in size and binding, but of the overall teachings, and its easy reading. Always an inspiration. I have gone thru two of these and will need to order a third here pretty quick as I keep giving them as gifts!
