About the Author:

The American author, Prem Prakash, lives and teaches yoga at the Kailash Ashram in Middlebury, Vermont, where he co-directs the Green Mountain School of Yoga. He teaches yoga at several nearby schools and travels nationally to speak at yoga centers. His other books include: Three Paths of Devotion, Yoga American Style, and The Yoga of Spiritual Devotion. Married and the father of an energetic six-year-old son, he has much to tell us about yoga.

Review:

When I first saw Universal Yoga: The Bhagavad Gita for Modern Times by Prem Prakash, I wondered why anyone would add to the plethora of Gita commentaries already available today. The author provides an answer in his introduction, noting that his book is unique and necessary because it is written primarily for a Western audience by an American-born yogi-scholar. The question that then follows the effort is one of quality. Has the author succeeded? Absolutely! Prem Prakash has created a translation of and commentary on the Bhagavad Gita ... in concise, accessible prose, ... clarifying the Gita s context within the Mahabharata ... and explaining the complex mythological symbolism and expounding upon the spiritual teachings of the Gita. He ... exposes the core issues in direct language that makes meaning clear, ... and directly connects the reader with the text .... The Bhagavad Gita has never felt so alive, present and personal as Prem Prakash has made it. --Alida Winternheimer, Himalayan Path, Volume 9, Number 3, Summer 2009
