The Living Gita

by Swami Satchidananda

This was I guess it would have been right after my son was born, and then, right after I got divorced, somebody gave it to me. And I got a lot out of it. And, again, there have been multiple interpretations, multiple writings of it. But there was one in particular interpretation, [it's The Living Gita, by Sri Swami Satchidananda], I gave that book to a couple dozen people. They were like yeah, I’m having a hard time right now. I don’t know what to do. And I was like you should read this book.
