We are excited to announce the completion and publication of Swamiji’s revelation of the full 18 chapters of the Bhagavad Gītā, in the Light of Kashmir Shaivism. This complete Bhagavad Gītā set is being released as a DVD Study Set, which includes 27 DVDs along with an extensively annotated transcript, in the form of a high quality hard cover cloth bound 705 page book with sewn binding. We are planning on making this Study Set available on Swamiji’s solar birthday, May 9th, 2013.
This treasure was one of the last works Swami Lakshmanjoo, the distinguished fully realized philosopher/saint 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 Bhagavad Gītā. This new revelation was a result of the state of Universal God Consciousness that Swamiji was now experiencing.
This translation is based on Abhinavagupta’s own commentary on the Gītā, the Gītārthasaṁgraha, “The Essence of the Gīta”. 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 Gītā The Lord’s Song” is being made available for the spiritual illumination of all humankind.
Many additional comprehensive footnotes and annotations have been added to the book, that accompanies the 27 DVDs in this multi-media study set. These are drawn from Swamiji’s discussions on similar topics in his other translations such as the Tantrāloka, the earlier audio translation of the Bhagavad Gītā, 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.
