Bhagavad Gita (Penguin Clásicos) by Anonymous

By Anonymous

Los mejores libros jamás escritos. Un diálogo entre el dios y el hombre que muestra los caminos de los angeles acción, l. a. devoción y el conocimiento de Oriente. «Todos los seres nacen en los angeles ilusión, l. a. ilusión de l. a. división procedente del deseo y el odio.»

Este texto forma parte del libro VI del Mahabharata, y fue escrito probablemente en los siglos I o II a.C. No se conocen sus autores. Se presenta como un diálogo entre Arjuna y Krisna, en el campo de batalla, justo cuando va a empezar los angeles guerra entre los Pandaras y los Kauravas. El miedo a los angeles batalla inicia un diálogo a través del cual se traza una sinopsis del pensamiento y experiencia religiosa de los angeles India, que aglutina los caminos de los angeles acción, los angeles devoción y el conocimiento.

A Juan Mascaró se debe una de las traducciones más célebres de los angeles Bhagavad Gita, que aquí presentamos en versión castellana de José Manuel Abeleira frente al sánscrito original.

Mahatma Gandhi dijo...
«Cuando las dudas me persiguen, cuando l. a. desilusión me mira fijamente a l. a. cara y no veo ningún rayo de esperanza en el horizonte, me dirijo hacia Bhagavad Gita y busco un verso que me reconforte.»
