    Why must I look at a puddle of water when I can drink from the sweet river directly offered by Bhagwan himself?

    Re: Gita

    Here is a good source of reference for Gita, as obtained from the Kanchi Forum:

    His Holiness Swami Dayananda Sarasvati Swamigal is one of the foremost thinkers and teachers today. I am using his Srimad Bhagavad Gita Home Study Guide (a 4-volume work of a lifetime) to study the Gita; he has explained the nuances of the Hindu thought so beautifully - I am thoroughly enjoying it.

    Here's some more information >>
    - This is a 4-volume series. Just to give you an idea, Volume 1 comes in hard-bound version, is 8.5 in x 11 in x 1.25", weighs about 4 lbs. It covers Chapters 1, 2, and 3 of the BhagavadGita and is about 500+ pages thick. The other three volumes are equally exhaustive and together cover all the 18 chapters of this great work.
    - Each sloka is printed in Sanskrit text, with the English transliteration, then word-by-word literal meaning, then the meaning of the whole sloka, and then an exhaustive commentary by Swamiji based on Sri Adhi Sankara's Sankarabhasyam.
    - Apart from the slokas themselves, Sri Dayananda Saraswati Swamigal has lucidly explained the Hindu Philosophy, given detailed explanation of commonly misunderstood words like Dharma, Karma, Vasanas and other - to ensure that the reader has the fundamentals in good shape - enough to understand the Gita.
    - References to the Vedas, Ramayana, Mahabaratha (the great epic in which this gem called Bhagavad Gita has been set) abound - to explain the context and the meaning.

    While the size and the enormous volume may frighten the casual reader, I can guarantee you that once you start reading it, it flows beautifully - you won't keep it down until you finish!!

    I understand that the Indian edition of the book costs Rs.400/- for each volume. Is this Pujya Dhayananda the same as the author of the Veda books you referred to, Varun Arya ji?
