Today I thought I'd share one of my favorite books, The Baghavad Gita. Specifically, the version translated by Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999), who is respected around the world as one of the greatest spiritual teachers. The Bhagavad Gita is believed to have been written between the 5th and 2nd centuries BCE, and, like similar great classics such as the Bible, it's timeless in its application. You could read this book many times over and receive something new each time. Let me know if you've read it and what inspires you the most - or if you pick it up let me know how it impacts you. We'll have our own little book club discussion right here on StyleNectar.
"Some of the chronic problems that millions of people suffer from today might be solved by gaining a little detachment from their minds and emotions, so they can stand back a little when the mind is agitated and see the ways in which it makes mountains out of molehills. Many problems simply are not real; they start to seem real only when we dwell on them. The thorniest problems to solve are those that are not real; yet most of us go on giving them our best efforts."
