Back of Book:
Annie Besant unfolds in this book the spiritual message of the Bhagavadgita, after having studied it deeply, translated it into English and, more than anything, also practised yoga. She points out:
'The Bhagavadgita, in its very essence, is that which it is called at the end of each of the adhyayas (chapters)-a Yoga-sastra. Unless we can learn yoga from this volume, it will, for us, have failed in its purpose.'
Guidance can be found here for learning yoga in its many aspects.
