Publisher's Summary

For centuries, people have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths. As profound and powerful as this classic text has been for generations of seekers, integrating its lessons into the ordinary patterns of our lives can ultimately seem beyond our reach.

Now, in a fascinating series of reflections, anecdotes, stories, and exercises, Ram Dass gives us a unique and accessible road map for experiencing divinity in everyday life. In the engaging, conversational style that has made his teachings so popular for decades, Ram Dass traces our journey of consciousness as it is reflected in one of Hinduism's most sacred texts. The Gita teaches a system of yogas, or "paths for coming to union with God."

In Paths to God, Ram Dass brings the heart of that system to light for a Western audience and translates the Gita's principles into the manual for living the yoga of contemporary life.

While being a guide to the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita, Paths to God is also a template for expanding our definition of ourselves and allowing us to appreciate a new level of meaning in our lives.

Well, I guess that's this books work taken care of

This book isn't so much about the Bhagavad Gita as it is one mans spiritual journey, and some advice for others seeking a larger role for the spiritual life.

Book is wonderful

The Readers mispronunciations are so bad and read as if he knew really had any idea how to pronounce the words. It would have been nice if the reader had of taken to time to learn the words from a speaker of the language he is slaughtering. The least he could have done is listen to a couple of the many books you already have on the subject such as "The Mahabharata" by Krishna Das that audible currently has or even another version of the many versions Audible has of the "Bhagavad Gita" first. I know the story well but his mispronunciations caused me to dislike this version just because it was so confusing as to who/what the reader was talking about. The total mispronunciations completely take away the absolute Beauty and Wonder the story is trying to read to us. I guess in order to be able to truly hear the beauty of Ram Dass' Book I will just have to read it myself and forget listening to Audible.

great stories from Ram Das

but.. not directly a classical approach to the Gita. And while the reading by Paul Brion is nice and clear, his pronounciation of Sanskrit is horrible and it's a shame they didn't pay any attention to that!

A giant leap forward

Ram Dass brings to life, in a way that only he can, the Bhagavad-Gita and the lessons at its core. This book is a giant leap forward for those struggling to understand their dharma, karma and/or finding happiness in life. If you have at all ever wondered what we’re doing here, or what your purpose is, you should read this book.

This book will challenge your perspectives.

After reading Be Here Now many moons ago, I've read countless other books on the subject. Some by RAM DASS and some from other authors such as Bo Lozoff with his We're All Doing Time, and i must say this book is not only the sequel but the definitive work on the subject. Amazingly they found a performer who sounds eerily just like RAM DASS, same accent and tone. Would recommend for anyone.
