Jñâna is the spiritual knowledge which not only connects all Hindus, but also all others who have faith in the spirit of the Absolute. Therefore is,concerning this true mystery, in this classical version of the Bhagavad Gîtâthe knowledge of finding liberation in the spirit called âtmatattva, theprinciple and reality of the true self, or that what stands for the knowledgeof the connectedness in spiritual matters. It is simply so that we without this âtmatattva are not human, because we essentially are homo sapiens, orman by the love of our spiritual wisdom. Even though this book containssome words and names found in the dictionary of Sanskrit, will this tothose readers who are interested in the classical sphere and culture of theVedas not be an obstacle. In the footnotes are the essential concepts usedone by one explained, and is thus this translation not only faithful to theoriginal text and purport, but also comprehensible to the lay. The ratherliberal phrasing is of a Modern style though and thus also because of thiseasy to follow. The result is a Song of Fortune accessible to any classicallyoriented person contending with the Modern burden of illusion and theloneliness of philosophical impersonalism.AnandAadharPrabhu is the Vedic name of René P.B.A. Meijer, a clinicalpsychologist born in the Netherlands in 1954, who, having turned to thephilosophy of yoga, after he became independent in 1982, got initiated inIndia in 1989.
