A Study Course By John Algeo
The Bhagavad Gita is one of the world’s most important books—indeed, one of the great books of human culture, Eastern and Western alike.
In India, the Gita is many things: it is the major guidebook to the spiritual life in the Hindu tradition; it is an eirenicon—a work that harmonizes the diverse views of life that find a place within traditional Indic religious philosophy, and it is an inspirational and culture- defining book that is to Indian society what the gospels are to the West. It is hard to overstate the importance and centrality of the Gita to Indian life.
