The key to peace by Satchidananda( file )
5 editions published between 1976 and 2011 in English and held by 421 libraries worldwide
One of Swami Satchidananda's greatest, compact works, Key to Peace shows clearly that peace is what really matters in life and explains how to be in that peace always by not disturbing our real nature. When our supreme inner peace is undisturbed we are automatically in joy, in love, in light. Inner peace inspires us to lead a life of balance, contentment, above likes and dislikes, a life where "everything comes to you." Topics include The Forbidden Fruit, Selflessness, Use But Don't Possess, Be Always Happy, The Greatest Mantra, Just Keep Giving, Real Service, Joy is Your Reward, God's Business, Love to Serve
The living Gita : the complete Bhagavad gita : a commentary for modern readers by Satchidananda( file )
7 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 364 libraries worldwide
The Bhagavad Gita tells the story of how Arjuna, the great warrior, is seated in his chariot about to engage in battle, when he sees his own kinsmen and his revered teacher arrayed in battle against him, and feels that he cannot fight. It is then that Krishna, the Cosmic Lord, comes to counsel him. Arjuna represents the human soul seated in the chariot of the body and Krishna is the inner Spirit, the God within, who is there to counsel him. Today we see humanity divided against itself and threatened with nuclear war and mutual destruction. No political means are adequate to deal with this problem, and many are driven to despair. It is then that the message of the Gita comes to teach us that it is only when we rise above human schemes and calculations and awake to the presence of the indwelling Spirit that we can hope to find the answer to our need
