Inner War and Peace
Timeless Solutions to Conflict from the Bhagavad Gita New Translation from Hindi
Osho calls the Bhagavad Gita “the first psychological scripture,” available to the East long before Freud, Adler, and Jung.
The Bhagavad Gita is probably the most famous of Hindu scriptures and is presented in the form of a dialog between the enlightened Krishna and the great archer and warrior Arjuna on the eve of the Mahabharata, the great Indian war that occurred some 5000 years ago.
In his commentaries Osho explains how the patterns and conditionings of our mind create pain and misery, dilemma, conflict, and war.
Each of us carries an Arjuna within us, and the mind of man at the beginning of the 21st century may not be too different from the one who fought 5000 years ago. Osho is speaking at a time of crisis that is far more complex and of a potentially far greater magnitude than when Krishna and Arjuna were living. Osho expands on Krishna’s psychological vision and gives us keys for personal and global peace.
