The Bhagavad Gita is an ancient channelled message. The conversation is between the Warrior and Krishna. Although the teaching is set on a battlefield its subject is the search for inner peace. The conflict we all experience in life is an inner one, between our eternal self and our temporary covering of mind and senses. Peace lies in resolving this conflict.
Once we realise that we are eternal beings life on Earth takes on a whole new meaning. Our journey leads to opening our hearts to eternal love – this journey is the essence of Krishna’s teaching.
Ranchor Prime has written an edition of the Bhagavad Gita in simple English which makes the teaching accessible to all. His other books include Hinduism and Ecology, Cows and the Earth and Prince of Dharma: The Life of The Buddha. He is owner of Fitzrovia Press and lives in Glastonbury.
