Nitya Chaitanya Yati

Guru Nitya's commentary of the Gita is written in the question and answer format that was used in the original text, with Krishna as guru and Arjuna as disciple. In this way the reader, as a student himself, continues in Arjuna's footsteps: seeking spiritual understanding in the midst of everyday struggles and paradoxes. The vision of the Gita is one which is grounded in a deep, inclusive understanding of Reality but which encompasses the demanding problems of transactional life. The social and psychological insights of Guru Nitya's commentary aptly convey this vision.
