Pressestimmen

"There have been hundreds of commentaries on the Bhagavad-Gita; this one manages to cut to the chase....a fresh and fun approach to studying this monumental work of the Hindu faith."-NAPRA Review "Rosen's exegesis is delightful for its Gita scholarship, for the fun he has integrating the language of golf with the language of yoga ("'yoga means "to link"'), and especially for his deconstruction of the novel in light of the Gita. Those of us who love this kind of literary-spiritual excavation will find great satisfaction in curling up with the quasi-holy trinity of the Gita, the Pressfield novel, and Rosen's Gita on the Green."-Yoga Journal "Gita on the Green shows how a long-honored spiritual substance can be...made viable for a modern-day audience....For those of us who have been long in the Ramakrishna Vedanta tradition, Gita on the Green provides a fresh approach."-American Vedantist "Gita on the Green does for the Bhagavad-Gita what Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance did for Zen Buddhism. It takes a philosophically elaborate Eastern tradition and makes it accessible for a Western audience....Enjoyable enlightenment."-Tamal Krishna Goswami, University of Cambridge "Very readable....Rosen is truly one of those rare writers who is qualified to depict this epic treatise of a man facing his own nature and arising victorious in this battle of life over the 'lower self."'-Hare Krishna World
