To be, or not to be – that is the question. – Hamlet by Shakespeare
a spiritual poem, it is
‘To be or not to be’ is also the question that The Bhagavad Gita asks. This holy tome is the spiritual essence of Hinduism and is revered by countless many around the world. On the Kindle I find it easy to read a few passages daily and in so doing I’ve highlighted my favorites. I’d like to share with you, one or more each week.
Being can be felt in the silence of the soul. – Juan Mascaro
The first translation I read of the Gita was a Penguin Classic by Juan Mascaro. The translation was so simple and easy to understand, whilst still poetic and beautiful, I fell in love with it. I’ll be using the same translation for these blogs, hope you enjoy!
Daily Affirmation: Today I will reflect, I’ll be more aware of all that I experience.
Recommendation: The Bhagavad Gita (Penguin Classics) by Juan Mascaro
