Description - The Realization of the Supreme Self by Trevor Leggett

This significant work deals with karma-yoga meditation practice and the realization of the supreme self as described in the Bhagavad Gita Yoga and commented upon by Sankara. Bhagavad Gita means literally "sung by the Lord". What are sung are extracts from the Upanisads, early Indian mystical texts. The Upanisads were not taught openly, but in the Gita the secrets are made available to all. The Bhagavad Gita has been called the Bible of India, but corresponds rather to the Gospels, which contain teachings for everyone's daily life, but also riddling indications of higher truths. The text raises many questions which is why Sankara - the great commentator on the Gita, says that it can be difficult to understand. Guidance, such as is provided in this work is essential for a proper understanding. "Realization of the Supreme Self" explains why the difficulties presented by the Gita are inevitable, and gives practical methods for penetrating to the truth beyond them. In the Indian style, the inspired texts are collated and explained by a commentator, who puts them into precise statements of principle. This work complements the Gita and its commentary by Sankara with teachings on particular cases by the late Hari Prasad Shastri, of whom the author was a pupil.
