My Gita by Devdutt Pattanaik: Book Review

All my life, I have always been fascinated by the incomplete bits and pieces of Ramayana, Mahabharat and Bhagwat Gita, having never actually gotten a chance to discover the stories myself.

Grateful for the free time that I get because of rest in chronic pain;

Consider it a silver lining but I am using it to read books that provides some kind of nutrition to my mind and not just any romance/fanatasy that people love to indulge themselves in, these days.

My Gita by Devdutt Pattanaik was one such opportunity to understand the dialogues between Krishna and Arjuna in the battlefield right before the great war.

Oh and have I loved it!

“We need to understand gods, before we indulge in talking about them. These beings are not out there in the world but very much in here in our minds.”~ My Gita

Being born in a Hindu family, I was automatically subscribed to Hinduism and not knowing my own religion always felt sort of regret. After having read this book, I understood most of it because of the simplicity and reasoning with which it’s presented, I feel more connected with myself now.

My Gita, was a book that imparted some real wisdom in me. It’s indeed above all the other self help books I have ever read in ways I can’t really explain. It’s deep and meaningful in a very infinite way.

Like they say, if you read and understand Gita properly, it answers all kinds of questions related to life. And if you ask me, I feel it certainly does.

I am going to read more books that try to explain teachings in the real Gita that’s hard to understand by any layman. Also, going to read Devlok by the same author.

If you liked the review and if you choose to read the book, do let me know how you felt after reading it and if you have already read it, I would love to know your thoughts in the comments section below.

You can also buy me a coffee through the yellow button to support my work.

My next read is going to be, The shooting star, a debut book by Shivya, a wonderful woman who is a travel blogger, digital nomad, hitchhiker and what not!

Exploring beautiful piece of works by Indian authors is overwhelming.

Blessed to have access to books that have the potential to unlock our inner potential. 🌻🌻
