The Bhagavad Gita, the classic spiritual text more than five thousand years old, has often been called India's greatest contribution to the world. In these pages, Jack Hawley presents the essence of the Gita's teachings in a format accessible to modern readers. The book is organized into chapters that address five important questions spiritual seekers have been grappling with for millennia: Who am I? Why am I here? Who, or what, is the Divinity many call “God”? What is my relationship to that Divinity? Is it even possible to live a spiritual life, and if so, how? Each chapter begins with an introduction by Jack Hawley. The teachings from the Gita follow, arranged under headings relevant to today's seekers, such as “Being the Real You,” “Seeing Divinity in Ordinary Humans,” and “Finding Happiness.” The ancient wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita lives on, helping us today as it has helped countless millions of people through the ages.

The Bhagavad Gita has been called India's greatest contribution to the world. For more than five thousand years, this great scripture has shown millions in the East how to fill their lives with serenity and love. In these pages, Jack Hawley brings these ancient secrets to Western seekers in a beautiful prose version that makes the story of the Gita clear and exciting, and makes its truths understandable and easy to apply to our busy lives. The Gita is a universal love song sung by God to His friend man. It can't be confined by any creed. It is a statement of the truths at the core of what we all already believe, only it makes those truths clearer, so they become immediately useful in our daily lives. These truths are for our hearts, not just our heads. The Gita is more than just a book, more than mere words or concepts. There is an accumulated potency in it. To read the Gita is to be inspired in the true sense of the term: to be “inspirited,” to inhale the ancient and ever-new breath of spiritual energy.

All his effort is essentially to remove the obscuring rock and release the image that was all along within. The Lord himself is the Divine Sculptor. The world is the Sculptor’s studio; life and the experiences it affords are the tools used by the Divine Sculptor to chisel out the excess rock and release the divine image trapped in the human boulder. This is a story of such transformation from unhewn self to radiant Self. Sarojini and Shyam Kanagala are seekers of the higher wisdom. They participate actively in nonprofit organizations dedicated to serving under privileged communities in different parts of the world including - the U.S.A, Nepal, and India. “This little book contains all the gems of the universal teachings of all the ancient masters of spiritual cultures past and present; that of love, inner peace, and brotherhood...a birthright of all who manifest on this tiny planet.” — Isaac Burton Tigrett, founder of The Hard Rock Cafe and The House of Blues “This book is a delightful two-part ride into deep space—spiritual space—in a cosmic chariot drawn by two quite different yet matching steeds. Part I, “The Journey Begins,” consists of Sarojini’s true life stories that help clear up why we’re all here. Part II, “Home Coming,” is husband Shyam’s learned probe into what “here” really means and lays out the map for getting to it.” — Jack Hawley, author of The Bhagavad Gita: A Walkthrough for Westerners

How Australian Marcus Lee and his wife, Julie, survived wrongful imprisonment, house arrest and five years of trials and tribulations in Dubai. In 2006 Marcus Lee moved to Dubai with his wife, Julie, to take up his dream job working for Nakheel, the emirate's largest property developer. Everything went swimmingly until one day in 2009 when Marcus was picked up by the state police and imprisoned in solitary over false charges of bribery. Marcus managed to get out of prison - and out of Dubai - with the help of Julie, who found her husband and spent five years working to free him - first from one of Dubai's notorious jails, and then from house arrest. In jail she kept his hopes up by smuggling notes and poems to him (she received smuggled diary entries in return). the tale of a foreign posting gone horribly wrong and a relationship which survived despite enormous odds, this is at heart a love story and a testament to the strength of a marriage.
