Although Pandu's son Arjuna was widely known as one who in combat could single-handedly fight and defeat 1,000 opposing warriors simultaneously, he was twice traumatized and brought to his knees on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. The first time was upon seeing countless loved ones eager for bloodshed on both sides of the impending fray. The second was upon discovering that his own charioteer, a bosom friend since adolescence, could not only speak about the experience of awakening to one's true nature, but could also provide the experience of beholding the infinite form of the one universal Self. Complete with word-for-word transliteration, this new presentation of India's timeless spiritual classic illuminates many subtle details which readers may find themselves either relishing for the very first time, or revisiting with a new level of penetration and appreciation. Sajohn Daverly has been a student of the Eastern wisdom teachings for over 35 years, assisting in the writing, editing, and proofreading of books and magazines presenting Eastern philosophy and culture since 1979. Previously ordained into one of the traditional branches of the Swami order during his three years living in India, he has been sharing his spiritual insights with groups and offering individual consultations since 1996.
