A mentor to national leaders like Lokmanya Tilak, Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave, Aurobindo, Madan Mohan Malaviya; a companion to western thinkers like Albert Einstein, Herman Hesse, Carl Jung, Aldous Huxley; and a mother to great saints like Adi Sankaracharya, Vivekananda, Madhvacharya; the Bhagavad-Gita can now be a friend to your child.
The pioneer proponent of the Bhagavad-Gita in modern times, Swami Chinmayananda, views the Bhagavad-Gita as the edifice upholding the Indian philosophy and culture, and as a guide in times, good and bad. Thus, the Bhagavad-Gita is a powerful tool for personal empowerment and social change.
In Gita for Children, the 18 chapters of the Bhagavad-gita are simplified by the Gita expert, Swami Chinmayananda. A detailed summary of each chapter is given, important verses selected and doubts cleared, for elders to explain the ideas to the children. While thus reading the book to the children, elders will find an insightful initiation into the Gita wisdom and children will find a loving friend in Lord Krishna, making the Gita experience richer, personal and valuable.
