In the Bhagavad Gita, Prince Arjuna asks direct, uncompromising questions of his spiritual guide on the eve of a great battle. In this expanded edition of the most famous --and popular -- of Indian criptures, Eknath Easwaran contextualizes the book culturally and historically and explains the key concepts of Hindu religious thought and the technical vocabulary of yoga. Chapter introductions, notes, and a glossary help readers understand the book´s message. Most importantly, this translation uses simple, clear language to impart the poetry, universality, and timelessness of the Gita´s teachings.
Rearming Hinduism is a handbook for intellectual resistance. Through an astute and devastating critique of Hinduphobia in today´s academia, media and popular culture, Vamsee Juluri shows us that what the Hinduphobic worldview denies virulently is not only the truth and elegance of Hindu thought, but the very integrity and sanctity of the natural world itself. By boldly challenging some of the media age´s most popular beliefs about nature, history, and pre-history along with the Hinduphobes´ usual myths about Aryans, invasions and blood-sacrifices, Rearming Hinduism links Hinduphobia and its hubris to a predatory and self-destructive culture that perhaps only a renewed Hindu sensibility can effectively oppose. It is a call to see the present in a way that elevates our desa and kala to the ideals of the sanathana dharma once again. ´´For a civilization is not just buildings and machines, but its people, their thought, and their culture. It is a way of knowing the world, a way of giving meaning and value to the contents of life. It is a resource, most of all, for living intelligently.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: P. J. Ochlan.

An audiobook in Tamil. The Vedas are the wellsprings of Hinduism, but unlike the majority of religions and scriptures, the origins of these extraordinary teachings are not recorded. No one knows when they came into being, who uttered them first. The Vedas are themselves without beginning or end, like the universe and the omnipresent they describe. Their cosmic reach rivals the grandeur of the most magnificent manifestation of God´s avatars: the Viswarupa. The bhakti movement of the sixth and seventh centuries represented a massive revival of Hindu religion and philosophy. At a time when powerful forces were trying to undermine the very foundation of Hindu thought, these singing sages touched the hearts and minds of millions of Indians with their profound spiritual messages. Their songs and the bhakti they generated rejuvenated Hindu dharma. They made it relevant to all times and all peoples. They embraced the great wisdom of the leading faiths of the world, while at the same time rejecting dogma and superstition. They revealed the glories of the Vedas in their pristine purity to the vast majority of people. They appealed to men and women, people of different languages and backgrounds. The alvars immersed themselves in the ocean of bhakti, they sang the lord´s praise in the most deeply felt lyrics. Full of devotion and humility, certain in their faith, and ecstatic in their fervor, the alvars feared none. If the pasurams or songs of the alvars are soaked in beautiful Tamil, their lives are pregnant with the meaning of life in this world and beyond; they are tales of sacrifice, utter surrender before God, and spontaneous effusion of the most magnificent poetry. Listen to the extraordinary stories of the lives of the 12 alvars, told in the bewitching words of author R. P. Sarathy. 1. Tamil.
