This treasure was one of the last works Swami Lakshmanjoo, the distinguished philosopher/saint from the non-dual tradition of Kashmir Shaivism, did while living in this world. It was given to John and Denise Hughes when they met with him in Nepal in 1990. When he began this translation he told them it was his new revelation revealing the supreme secrets hidden in the Kashmiri recension of the world remouned scripture Bhagavad Gita, the Song of God. This revelation was a result of the state of Universal God Consciousness that Swami Lakshmanjoo was now experiencing.
This translation is based on Abhinavagupta’s own commentary on the Gita, the Gitarthasamgraha, "The Essence of the Gita". Here Swamiji reveals the unique and liberating teaching of Kashmir Shaivism which proclaims; "Freedom from all our miseries, as Abhinavagupta boldly declares, can neither be obtained through the renunciation of the world, nor by hatred of this world, but by experiencing the presence of God everywhere." At last, the secrets and profound meaning of the Bhagavad Gita The Lord’s Song” is being made available for the spiritual illumination of all humankind.
In the book that accompanies this 26 hour audio study set, many additional comprehensive footnotes and annotations have been added. These are drawn from Swamiji's discussions on similar topics in his other translations such as the Tantraloka, the earlier audio translation of the Bhagavad Gita, and other pertinent texts. These additions are meant to aid in the study of this revelation and to illuminate and deepen the students understanding. We have also added a seventeen-page index to help in its study.
This Study Set has not only an audio component but also an accompanying video, sold separately, with 27 DVDs, which we highly recommend.
