From the Introduction You are about to have the profound pleasure of reading one of the truly great books in the history of the world. Not only is it a spiritual monument--an essential scripture of Hinduism, recited daily for two millennia and to this very day, whose teachings have spread throughout Asia and around the globe--it is also a literary masterpiece, the linchpin of a great epic of war and peace, honor and disgrace, loyalty and betrayal. It is a book people everywhere in the world return to again and again throughout their lives for insight into the nature of reality. Table of Contents Introduction Arjuna's Despair Theory Action Knowledge, Action and Renunciation Renunciation Meditation Knowledge and Discernment The Liberating Brahman The Royal Science Power His Cosmic Form Devotion The Field and Its Knower The Three Properties The Supreme Spirit The Divine and the Demonic The Three Kinds of Faith Liberation and Renunciation Names and Nicknames Contributors Index About the Author Residing in Oslo, Norway, Lars Martin Fosse holds a master's and doctorate from the University of Oslo, and also studied at the Universities of Heidelberg, Bonn, and Cologne.
