Özet
"This book investigates the Bhagavad-Gita's rise to prominence in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and its relationship with the Hindu tradition in the modern era." "It features a range of influential Indian and Western thinkers to illustrate trends in writing about the Bhagavad-Gita, including Western academic, Indian activist, Christian theological, Hindu universalist, perennialist mystical and contemporary experiential accounts. Examining the ideas of such influential figures as F. Max Mutter, M.K. Gandhi, Bede Griffiths, Swami Vivekananda, Aldous Huxley and Swami Bhaktivedanta, this book demonstrates the inextricable link between different interpretations of the Bhagavad-Gita and images of the Hindu tradition."--Jacket.
