Book Review: Finding the Meaning in Life with the Bhagavad Gita

Finding the Meaning in Life with the Bhagavad Gita
Authors: Neema Majumdar, Nandini Mirani & Saloni Jhaveri
Publisher: Aleph Book Company
Rating: 4/5

Using the Battle of Kurukshetra as the pivot, Bhagavad Gita teaches us so many lessons that can be implemented in our daily life. Every character who played a role in the Mahabharat has a significant lesson to impart through his actions, words as well as decisions. Using the same context, ‘Finding the Meaning in Life with the Bhagavad Gita’ uses simple language to break down 45 verses of Gita to help the readers handle larger challenges in life.

Right from the after effect of being emotionally inclined and being self-centred, the search for purpose and contentment, learning about universal awareness to learning to target the attention where one has a choice, doing what will have a positive impact on others and having a calm and clear mind- all the inferences are practical and applicable in the present world where people are misguided by their overworked mind and often misjudged by the choices they make.

I liked the preciseness of this book that comes in a compact, small size. Neatly edited and with immaculate hardcover, it is definitely a ‘must-have’. The subtle illustrations definitely act as a cherry on the cake.

Best wishes to the author!
