“What it takes to stay calm and triumph over adversity”
“The Bhagawad Gita of Inner Courage… This work lets you see the Gita as a single whole, rather than as a mixture of several teachings. ” – THE HINDU.
“The Bhagavad Gita in its true wholeness” is the one phrase that can best describe Prof. Kev Nair’s translation of the Bhagavad Gita into English.
“The Bhagavad Gita of Inner Courage… Easy-to-read and easy-to-understand” – The New Indian Express.
Prof. Kev Nair’s Bhagavad Gita of Inner Courage is the world’s first work that lets you see the Bhagavad Gita as a single whole – unified by this singleness of focus – rather than as a mixture of several teachings.
By helping you to understand the Bhagavad Gita in its true wholeness, Prof. Nair’s English translation helps you:
- To integrate your personality traits into a harmonious whole, and
- To transform yourself, your children, employees and others into individuals of great character who cannot be overwhelmed by adversity or pressures of life.
“The 3,857-line poem in 700 stanzas contain the translation of all the 700 stanzas of the Gita to easy-to-read and easy-to-understand English verse. The book has been annotated profusely with verse notes and footnotes and has been cross-referenced thoroughly. It also contains an elaborate introduction, summarising the central teachings of the Gita…” – The New Indian Express.
As Prof. Nair puts it, in practical terms, the single, all-important lesson that the Bhagavad Gita teaches, is this: “What is important for true joy in life is not that painful events, results or thoughts must not happen – or that only pleasurable events, results or thoughts must happen. What is important is this: No matter how painful or pleasurable the events, results and thoughts that happen are, you must have the courage and determination to be anchored to this understanding and to hold your mind still – and to go on doing your duty calmly and with absolute devotion, undeterred by them all.”
“Extensive research on the content, language used in translations and the interpretations gave shape to this version… The words used are simple so that everybody can understand the contents… It is easy on the reader and does not put you off… LAUDABLE EFFORT…” – THE HINDU.
Apart from making the meanings of the verses clear through the translated verses themselves, Prof. Nair has used a few other devices to help the readers get a total picture of the whole of the Bhagavad Gita. He has given verse notes and footnotes wherever necessary, supplying additional information, clarifications and explanations. Cross-references have been given wherever a verse can be understood better by referring to other verses or groups of verses. The verses do not run on from page to page plainly, but have been divided not only under chapter headings, but also under a series of helpful sub-headings. The 11-page Table of Contents is quite detailed and gives a bird’s eye view of the whole of the Bhagavad Gita. There is also an elaborate index at the end of the book. Serious students of the Bhagavad Gita and researchers would find this index extremely useful.
