For those of you who belong to this unenviable category of busy people, I have a quick tip. Read Swami Sivanandas 17-page book Bhagavad Gita For Busy People published by the Divine Life Society of the Tehri-Garhwal Himalyas. Now its available as e-book in PDF format for FREE DOWNLOAD. Here Swamiji presents the complete Gita in 18 short chapters. The Foreword of the book below will give you a better idea:
Life is very complex in these days. The struggle for existence is very keen. Man finds no time to study big philosophical and religious books, or the whole of the Gita. Here is an abridged edition of the Gita, which contains its quintessence for the use of students, doctors, advocates and busy people.
That man who merely studies daily even a few Slokas is not stained by Karma. He obtains perfect wisdom, Supreme Peace and eternal Bliss and Immortality. Then what to speak of him who lives and acts according to the spirit of the teachings of the Gita?
He who reads even a quarter of a Sloka is freed from great sins and fear of death.
The Gita is your benefactor and constant companion. The Gita is your Teacher and Guru. The Gita is your real Father and Mother. The Gita is your solace, support and prop. The Gita is an embodiment of nectar. Drink this nectar daily and attain Immortality. May the Gita guide you! (THE DIVINE LIFE SOCIETY)
