“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one” - Jojen

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.” – Charles W.Elliot

“Few are sufficiently sensible of the importance of that economy in reading which selects, almost exclusively, the very first order odf books. Why, except for some special reason, read an inferior book, at the very time you might be reading one of the highest order? ”

Unmissable Classics

“To all such souls in the East and the West come these divine lessons ; for the path is one, though it has many names”- Annie Besant.

The Geeta gives Philosophical Advice as to how one should Live one’s Worldly Life. It’s a Prescription on “How to Live”.

Immortal words that have & will continue to stand the Test of Time.

This particular translation is by FAR the best I’ve read.

No other translation comes even slightly close to it in terms of its Crystal Clear Explanations ( in the ‘commentaries’) & its inimitable Style of Expression

“Each soul is potentially divine.

The goal is to manifest this Divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal.

This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details”– Swami Vivekananda
