    Description

    Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change people's lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita: Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda shares the profound insights of Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by one of his few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda.

    This revelation of India's best-loved scripture approaches it from an entirely fresh perspective, showing its deep allegorical meaning as well as its down-to-earth practicality. The themes presented are universal: how to achieve victory in life in union with the divine; how to prepare for life's "final exam", death, and what happens afterward; and how to triumph over all pain and suffering.

    Excelent Read, Very Informative

    The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita is an excellent read for anyone trying to understand more deeply the Bhagavad Gita and Hindu teachings in general. The elaborate explanations of each passage help one to understand not only the original context of the script, but how it compares with other scriptures (i..e. the New Testament) and how it can be applied in daily life. While the text is not quite as elaborate as the original translation done by Paramahansa Yogananda (published by SRF in hardcover only), it seems to contain the essence of Yogananda’s translation and, as this is the only version of Yogananda’s translation in audio format, it is a definite must read. If you were intrigued by “Autobiography of a Yogi” this is definitely a great next read. I am glad that Swami Kriyananda and Ananda’s publishing team at “Crystal Clarity Publishers” are bringing so many great works to Audible. A note on the book; this can be somewhat more deep than Autobiography so it is not a book you can simply zone out to while doing other tasks. While there was a bit of repetition on key points, it can be very easy to miss a valuable topic if you are distracted. All in all it was an excellent read, well worth the credit. I am already placing an order for another of Swami Kriyananda’s books.

    Wonderful, elevating book for daily support

    I listen to this book as i drive to and from work and other places. It has had an amazing influence, helping to restore my attention to its best places and attitudes. It also has helped tremendously in sorting out some particular practical matters i have been pondering lately about my path of spiritual growth.

    There seem to be a few errors in the audio book--an entire segment beginning around 4 hours and 43 minutes or so is definitely repeated--but then, none of this is anything that doesn't bear repeating anyway. This book is both enjoyable and edifying to me.

    Very Enlightening

    I am a Christian but always looking to have a deeper more meaningful spiritual life. I believe that great light and truth can be found in many forms of religious thought. In fact this book gave me many new insights into my own New Testament and the teachings of Christ. The reader at first seemed too soft spoken, but found that it fit the subject matter very well and was fine once I got used to it.

    I bit off more than I can process with this one...

    I was merely looking for an overview as to what the Bhagvad Gita was... instead, I found myself immersed into a conversation that concerns the finer details of the book. I also ended up with a lot of opinion and speculations about other religions - This is not what I was after.

    So, if you want to be bathed in the personal opinions and teachings of Swami Kriyananda's, then this is a winner. If you are merely looking for a general, greater understanding, it may be best to look else where.

    On the plus side though, the narrator has a very soothing voice.

    Remarkable

    I've read the Gita in several different translations and interpretations. Profound and rare this particular one is a wonderful work of pure spirit and intuitive completeness. Even in its long 20 hours listening to it only once is impossible.

    Unexpected

    What made the experience of listening to The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita the most enjoyable?

    I have heard nothing like this. This book helped me push my spirituality to the next level. I have since bought and read many more books from James Donald Walters or Kriyananda. I wish I could explain the growth that this book has helped accomplish.

    Life Long Work Revealed Wisely

    I can not say enough about J. Donald Walters.
    His life long mission to emulate his spiritual master is magnetic, and magnificently revealed in this volume. Every time I listen to it on my way home from teaching a class of sixth through eighth grade special education students I feel spiritually revived.

    Must Read

    There are several iterations of this sacred scripture, each blessed with its own intuitive slant. However, (through Swami Kriyananda)Paramahansa Yogananda has managed to digest this text for the nourishment of all men independent of sect and caste, triggering the self-realization process for humanity at large.

    Hard to follow speaker

    The Speaker was not easy to understand. Hard to follow.
    It was rather boring than interesting.

    My heart is filled with overwhelming joy

    This is one of the most amazing audiobooks I ever heard. The got in itself is one of my favourite scriptures. But swami kriyanandas Interpretation really opened my eyes to even deeper layers of this holy text.
    May it help sincere god seekers to find their final goal of self realisation.
