This book is amazing and most importantly so easy to understand. Mr. Prime provides a translation of the original Sanskrit along with commentary. I read it nightly and each section I read was relevant to my day and life in general. I used it as a guide to seek understanding of my daily obstacles. In relation to issues with my children, hurtful words that have been spoken or as an answer to ‘should I or should I not’. Each part that I read gave me clarity. This morning after an unpleasant encounter with one of my monkeys’ teachers, I found myself focusing on the real issue (what can I do to help my monkey) and not letting things eat away at me (how could she say that about my monkey) essentially staying mindful and letting go. The lessons in the Bhagavad Gita are universal; they are about love, knowledge, wisdom, mindfulness and they are told lyrically in this beautiful translation of ancient text.
Here is one (of many) quotes that I have written down from Mr. Prime’s translation:
Anger produces illusion, and from illusion comes forgetfulness. Forgetfulness brings loss of intelligence, and when intelligence is lost one falls down again into the whirlpool of material existence.
