Thanks for continued posting on the wisdom of Geeta.
I read it everyday and find a wonderful insight into the true learning.
It is a science in itself but only for the beleiver.
Om and God bless all of us

I cannot take very much credit. The book I am using gives a word for
word translation from the Sanskrit. The word order takes a little
getting used to and sometimes the English words that are chosen by the
author have several definitions and the author sometime uses the more
obscure definition, so I find I have to use a dictionary some to get
the real meaning. What I then do is try and relate that word for word
English translation to my own meditation experience so that I can
express that translation in a way that is more understandable I hope.
What I find wonderful about the Gita is here are these words that in
a condensed kind of way outlines the spiritual experience, like
lecture notes that a teacher can expand on. Since I meditate myself,
I feel that I can do the subject some justice, but I sometimes wonder
if there might be better words than the ones I use.
