About Jewels from the Gita

This volume contains a transcription of short, informal talks by Dr Ananda Reddy on Sri Aurobindo’s thoughts on Sri Krishna and the Bhagavad Gita. The book is divided into three sections, each one dealing with Sri Aurobindo’s reading of a facet of Sri Krishna’s personality or his philosophy: Vasudeva Krishna, Jnaneshwara Krishna, and Yogeshwara Krishna. The author picks out for discussion Sri Aurobindo’s reading of Krishna’s personality as Vasudeva (Section One), the latter’s Yoga of Knowledge (Section Two), and the concluding section on Krishna as the archetypal Yogi (Section Three).
Specifically, Section One has mostly to do with the epiphany as recounted in the Gita; the chapters in Section Two deal with the mysteries of birth, death, rebirth and the nature of the soul, and karma. The concluding section orients the reader to the significance of this text for modern times.
