Bhagavad gita As It Is (ebook) 1.2

The Gita and the moral issues it raises are still alive. It's a living, breathing text that has constantly been in motion since its origin.

Davis neatly organizes a great deal of material and he presents it in utterly accessible prose. This is an easy read - and a great one too. Being thoroughly researched and documented this serves as a primer on Gita.

And also a template for those who would like to study the impact of religious texts on the life and history of human race. Like the Sacred Books of the East in the nineteenth century, the Princeton series offers a fresh canon of global stature; thanks to Davis's superb retelling of the history of this powerful, influential, living classic, the Gita has its honoured place on that shelf. Clooney, Religions of South Asia "A highly enjoyable volume that will be of interest to a large educated audience, to religious specialists, and to historians of modern and colonial India, among others.

Davis traces the varying course of its semantic trajectory through history with erudite clarity. A must-read for anyone interested in the Gita.

Reading intelligently depends in part on knowing how others in the past have read, and for the Gita's past, Richard Davis has provided the best guidance available. Davis's authoritative voice is a dependable guide throughout. I cannot imagine this book being done better by anyone else.

Its uniqueness rests in its breadth and historical scope—each chapter opens new contexts and perspectives. Davis is a careful scholar who writes clear, straightforward prose, remarkably free of jargon.

Eck, author of India: A Sacred Geography "Davis examines the Gita in its own time, in medieval and modern India, in its travels to Europe and America, and beyond—in other words, he presents the long view of this book's life.

He is very learned and smart, and writes with a minimum of scholarly jargon, in a very accessible and interesting way.

Trautmann, author of India: Brief History of a Civilization. Madhava Sri Krishna and the son of Pandu Arjuna blew their divine conchs. And Kashya of the great bow, and Shikhandi of the great chariot, Dhrishtadyumna and Virata and Satyaki, the unconquered, Drupada, and the sons of Draupadi, O Lord of earth, and Saubhadra, the mighty-armed, on all sides their several conchs blew.

That tumultuous uproar resounding through earth and sky tore the hearts of the sons of Dhritarashtra. Then, beholding the sons of Dhritarashtra standing in battle order, — and the flight of missiles having begun, the son of Pandu Arjuna , whose emblem is an ape, took up his bow and spoke this word to Hrishikesha, O Lord of earth: Arjuna said: O Achyuta the faultless, the immovable , stay my chariot between the two armies, so that I may view these myriads standing, longing for battle, whom I have to meet in this holiday of fight, and look upon those who have come here to champion the cause of the evil-minded son of Dhritarashtra.

Sanjaya said: Thus addressed by Gudakesha one that has overcome sleep. Seeing all these kinsmen thus standing arrayed, Kaunteya, invaded by great pity, uttered this in sadness and dejection: I am not able to stand and my mind seems to be whirling; also I see evil omens, O Keshava. Nor do I see any good in slaying my own people in battle; O Krishna, I desire not victory, nor kingdom, nor pleasures.

What is kingdom to us, O Govinda, what enjoyment, what even life? What pleasures can be ours after killing the sons of Dhritarashtra. O Janardana?

Sin will take hold of us in slaying them, though they are the aggressors. So it is not fit that we kill the sons of Dhritarashtra, our kinsmen; indeed how may we be happy, O Madhava, killing our own people? Although these, with a consciousness clouded with greed, see no guilt in the destruction of the family, no crime in hostility to friends, why should not we have the wisdom to draw hack from such a sin, O Janardana, we who see the evil in the destruction of the family?

In the annihilation of the family the eternal traditions of the family are destroyed; in the collapse of traditions, lawlessness overcomes the whole family, Owing to predominance of lawlessness, O Krishna, the women of the family become corrupt; women corrupted, O Varshneya, the confusion of the Varnas arises.Hence the Pandavas decided to live separately, sharing half of their kingdom.

Davis is professor of religion at Bard College.

On our side, too,- thou best of Brahmans! Having successfully completed these thirteen years of exile, facing many obstacles and dangers instigated by the Kauravas, the Pandavas, as per the terms of the agreement, approached the Kauravas for their share of the kingdom.

This confusion leads to hell the ruiners of the family, and the family; for their ancestors fall, deprived of pinda rice offering and libations.
