In a verse-by-verse reading of a chapter on devotion from the well-known Indian scripture, the Bhagavad Gita, Easwaran offers practical wisdom, stories, and insights to guide us through the challenges of everyday love. Our deepest need is to love completely, universally, without reservation - in other words, to become love itself. This book is Easwaran's commentary on Chapter 12 of the Bhagavad Gita, and is taken from Like a Thousand Suns (The Bhagavad Gita for Daily Living Volume 2, chapter 7-12), with a new introduction from Easwaran.

Much like his other books: gentle, humorous, succinct, and clearly written. Here, he analyzes Chapter 12 of the Bhagavad Gita where Lord Krishna explains the Way of Love (as opposed to the Way of Knowledge, which is an impersonal way to achieve union with the more abstract form of God). Both Ways will take you to God, but the Way of Love is much more practical for your everyday person to follow to eradicate self-centeredness and sense of separation. The lines from the Bhagavad Gita are beautiful, and Easwaran lingers on them, chapter by chapter. A good, thought-provoking read.

I don't want to do this.
Sri Easwaran continues the quote by Mechthild of Magdeburg (13th-Century Christian mystic), which forms the title for this book review: "...and must ever strive to return to love. Therefore, it can never find rest nor happiness in other things. It must lose itself in love" [8].

Easwaran interprets the the quote to mean: "Once we grasp the sense of these quiet statements, they can change our lives forever. They mean that being able to love fully, unconditionally, is our native state" [9]. He directs attention to Mechtthild, because she is part of a large group of mystics who Easwaran considers the best sources to teach us love and how to love rightly. However, Easwaran acknowledges that many people turn to sources with far less first-hand knowledge than the mystics to learn about love.

Perhaps people turn on the television set to learn about love on a soap opera. One must wonder if this source of information "can change our lives forever" when it comes to practicing "love fully, unconditionally." The mystics, on the other hand, tell us that we could learn how to love fully and unconditionally, if only we were to connect with our true nature in God. The steps to reconnecting with God, according to Easwaran, involve a process of looking within ourselves [24].

"Far from being an otherworldly activity," speaking of the work of the mystics and of the journey within, "living in the awareness of God is the most practical goal a human being can pursue" [11]. Sometimes called inner purification, Easwaran meditates on passages from an ancient Vedic conversation, between a young warrior named Arjuna and Lord Krishna, in the 'Bhagavad Gita.' Each chapter begins with a passage, followed by the author's reflections.

What a reader discovers is that Easwaran speaks from his own experience about the same foundation of human consciousness and being as revealed in the 'Gita.' Characteristic of his own love for the reader, Easwaran veers a course through treacherous waters. The danger of these waters for his course on love are evident. Sunken ships that were filled with treasures of greed and mistaken ideas about love can damage the hull unless a master mariner takes the wheel.

Anticipate reading simple stories about love in this book. These stories are simple in the sense that they address immortal truths about (1) what it means to be human, (2) why human beings lose track of who they are, and (3) what human beings can do to get back on track. His experience guides readers to imagine their own lives consumed by love.

In the fourth part of his collected meditations about passages from the "Gita," Easwaran lays out his 8-point path of meditation to teach how he learned to steer the course of life according to "our native state." Having recovered his own native state, he joins the choir of mystics to love fully and unconditionally. Indeed, readers may practice his suggestions and discover for themselves that their native condition will also be filled with an endless supply of love.
