In My Gita, acclaimed mythologist Devdutt Pattanaik demystifies The Bhagavad Gita for the contemporary reader. His unique approach - thematic rather than verse by verse - makes the ancient treatise eminently accessible. In a world that seems spellbound by argument over dialogue, vi-vaad over sam-vaad, Devdutt highlights how Krishna nudges Arjuna to understand rather than judge his relationships.

Is this your first attempt to understand the BG? if so please skip this one. The writing style is boring, the narrative is even worse and audio quality shows the chalta hai attitude in India. Way to go Audible India, shame on you.

  • The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita, "The Song of the Lord", is the best known of all the Indian scriptures, and Easwaran's reliable and accessible version has consistently been the best-selling translation. Easwaran's introduction places the Gita in its historical setting and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. Chapter introductions give clear explanations of key concepts in that chapter.

Doesn't do justice to the spirit of the text. The limited and dated examples used by the author fails to contextualise the lesson for the listener.
