Srimad Bhagavad Gita - A Multimedia CD
The Gita is one of the profoundest books of Indian spirituality. It is special in its structure of thought and in its language. It does not seek to confine itself to any one school or religious view but in fact, “there is a wide, undulating, encircling movement of ideas which is the manifestation of a vast synthetic mind and a rich synthetic experience… It does not cleave asunder, but reconciles and unifies.”
Studying, understanding or simply listening to the Gita forms a part of life for millions of people not just in India but world over. Many commentaries have been written, giving diverse interpretations of the Gita. In Sri Aurobindo’s phenomenal work titled ‘Essays on the Gita’, we enter into the spirit of the Gita and look at the truth with a deep insight.
The CD therefore contains a variety of material, presented in a manner which is easily accessible and usable. It contains the following sections:
The entire text of the Gita. The verses are given both in Devanagari and Roman transliteration followed by English translation, anvaya (the prose order of the Sanskrit words) and word by word meaning. The verses referred to by Sri Aurobindo in his Essays on the Gita have references beside them. One can click on these references and access the respective pages of the Essays. Some of the verses are also accompanied by brief excerpts from the Essays, to elucidate further the deeper import contained in these particular verses.
The entire text of the Essays on the Gita by Sri Aurobindo. In the Essays wherever any verse of the Gita is referred to, the reference icon appears alongside and on clicking will lead to the relevant section of the Gita. Apart from the Essays on the Gita it also contains an edited version of the English translation of Sri Aurobindo’s Bengali writings on the Gita, and a few more writings of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother on the Gita. A brief life-sketch of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother have also been given here.
Listen to the Gita. In this section one can listen to the chanting of the entire Gita beginning from the first verse of Chapter One to the end of Chapter Eighteen.
