Finding Happiness in the Battlefield of Life – The Bhagavad Gita Way

Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a beautiful book. It means Song of the Lord. It is one of the Upanishads, perhaps the only Upanishad, which was taught in the battlefield and not in the forest. We are all in the battlefield of life; it is not that we are separate from this metaphor. There are so many situations before us. What do we usually do? Either we jump into it with great violence, or we try to run away from it; retire from it, and feel dejected. However, there is a middle path to this, and that is what Krishna describes in the Gita.

There are a number of Yoga text books. Yoga teachings which have come from the Nath sampradhaya the most popular one, which of course is much later than the Yoga-Sutras of Patanjali is the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.


An Ode to the Devi

I think, in the present millennium, in the present time that we are passing through, the teachings of text books like the Soundarya Lahari, purported to be written by Adi Shankaracharya, are very important because we need to balance the heart and the head to move forward.
