9781594773792: The Wisdom Teachings of Harish Johari on the Mahabharata

Harish Johari’s revelations on the lessons and predictions in this classic Indian epic

· Examines the lessons of the main characters in the Mahabharata and how each symbolizes an aspect of human consciousness

· Explains dharma in modern terms, shedding light on major events in our time

· Contains a modern retelling of the Bhagavad Gita, the essence of Indian philosophy

· Includes teachings on the relationship between energy, the elements, and the chakras and on the causes for war in this epic story

· Compiled and Edited by Wil Geraets

Harish Johari (1934-1999), the distinguished North Indian author and Tantric scholar, spent a lifetime studying the Mahabharata and the lessons it contains. Known the world over for its famous chapters on the story of the hero Arjuna and the Bhagavad Gita, this ancient epic is more than just stories. As Johari reveals, the Mahabharata’s teaching tales contain insight on justice and injustice, individual and cosmic consciousness, Indian philosophy, and the four eras of humankind, including our current era, the Kali Yuga.

Based on numerous talks given by Johari, this book presents the deeper layers of the Mahabharata, revealing its wisdom and teachings in a contemporary and often entertaining way. Examining the lessons of the main characters and how each symbolizes an aspect of human consciousness, Johari explores the lives of Bhishma and Arjuna, the events in the Pandava and Kaurava families leading up to their battle at Kurukshetra, lesser-known stories such as the tale of Karna’s previous life as a demon, and a modern retelling of the Bhagavad Gita. Johari explains the complex concept of dharma in present-day language, shedding light on events unfolding in our current age, the Kali Yuga, and offers insights on the relationship between energy, the elements, and the chakras and on the causes for war in this epic story.
