Product Description

The Bhagavad-Gita, ostensibly a battlefield discussion between the warrior-hero Arjuna and the Hindu god Krishna, is an instructional text concerning 'yogas', or the dedication of one's industry towards what the Hindu would define as divine - becoming linked to or one with a transcendent reality. This is the desired end result of freeing ones mind to focus on the 'self's' glory. Oddly enough, this has been a source of inspiration for some writers in the Christian sphere, and in that tradition these essays are presented. The tone here is inclusive, not warning of the dangers of opening one's self up to unknown spiritual forces, and addressing seemingly comparative relationships rather than contrasting the two extremely different belief systems.

Publisher's Description

Christians have long encountered those of other religions in our daily lives. But how many of us have thought to read the "holy texts" of other faiths in order to better understand our own?

"The Song Divine," a commentary on the "Bhagavad Gita," is the first book in a brand new series, Christian Commentaries on Non-Christian Sacred Texts. Ten authors offer essays connecting this Hindu text to elements of Christian thought, including the book of Ephesians, the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, and the writings of Simone Weil.

Contributors include Michael Barnes, S.J., Maria Clara Bingemer, Bart Bruehler, Francis Clooney, S.J., Catherine Cornille, Gavin Flood, Reid B. Locklin, Rachel McDermott, Joseph S. O'Leary, Jaques Schueuer, S.J., and Steven Tsoukalas
