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, combined as it is with his trademark illustrations
and simple diagrams.
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. This becomes relevant today when we are increasingly indulging and isolating the self (self-improvement, self-actualization, self-realization—even selfies!).We forget that we live in an ecosystem of others, where we can nourish each other with food, love and meaning, even when we fight.
So let My Gita inform your Gita.
