    One thought on “Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad-Gita: A Translation and Commentary, Chapters 1-6”

    1. I have read this book off-and-on for years, and have reread many parts of it. The teachings are profound, especially "yogasta kuru kermani," or "center yourself in Being, then act." There are many versions ofThe Bhagavad-Gita. This one is offers very high teachings about Truth.

    2. This is the best translation of one of the most beautiful writings the world has ever known. A unique commentary, unlike any others out there. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

    3. This book goes hand in glove with MSI's Enlightenment (Yoga Sutras of Patanjali). If you are reading books, along with your meditation practice, seeking the Source of All Being, and expanding consciousness, these two books are great guides! Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (Bhagavad Gita) describes very clearly the inner workings of the mind and the way to freedom. Maharishi Sadasiva Isham (Enlightenment)furthers the discussion by clearly describing the states of consciousness and the psychological, emotio [...]

    4. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is a fascinating being and reading his commentary on the Gita provides insight into his thought process as well as a deeper understanding of Hinduism. I also love his way of writing, describing phenomenal concepts in a few eloquently strung-together words that truly capture the essences of human life, consciousness, and God. “The kingdom of heaven is like electricity. You don’t see it. It is within you.”

    5. The first six chapters of the Bhagavad-Gita with original Sanskrit text, an introduction, and a commentary designed to restore the fundamental truths of the teachings delivered by the Lord Krishna to Arjuna on the battlefield. Its a religious text folks, and with that comes many tenents to how to conduct your life in conformity with higher spiritiual principles. This is not the text about UFO s though. but well worth a study if hindusim and the castesystem rocks your world.

    6. I had a hard time getting thru this one. He writes in a style and vocabulary that I'm uncomfortable with. "This integration of functions on the physiological level is brought about by a mental activity of ultimate refinement." But I learned alot about the bhagavad-gita so it was worth the read. I would've preferred plain speaking version.

    7. This book for me is the founding text for the Transcendental Meditation technique. The concepts in this book were a lot more foreign until the Gnostic Gospels’ were found in 1945.

    8. One of my favorite all time books. I've read this several times. Well written and clear on what the Bhagavad-Gita is all about.

    9. Its only one commentary reveals essence of Bhagavat gita. Reading Maharishi's Bhagavat gita itself is a great joy. . Its very worth to readThank you Maharishi

    10. Same story as the Upanishads difficult to read, even with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's commentary. It's just hard to get into. I hope to return to this later.
