About Book :

The book explains use of the techniques and ideas of modern science to achieve a in-depth analysis of ancient circumspection. The book contains the Sanskrit text of the Gita in roman script plus simple translation of every verse followed by commentary containing in-depth Vedantic study..This totally different work thus becomes the first ever scientific reading of the Gita. The book is also replete with information on Eastern philosophy based on the doctrine of the Upanishads making it invaluable for anyone seriously interested in Vedantic knowledge. The Bhagavad Gita is not considered as a religious text in this work but as the simplest form of yoga Sastra.

 Originally written in Malayalam (one of the Classical Languages of India), the work was serialized in Mathrubhumi daily – the leading newspaper of Kerala – over a period of two years. Published as book in Malayalam language in 2011, the work is the best selling Bhagavad Gita book in that language.
