“I have attempted to read the Bhagavad Gita several times but found it very difficult to understand. Matthew Barnes’ version is very simple and straightforward. I recommend all of his works.” -Amazon Review
The Bhagavad Gita 101:
a modern, practical guide, plain and simple
The Bhagavad Gita (or “Song of God”) is one of the richest, most complete, and most important spiritual works ever composed.
Its teachings have been a timeless source of inspiration, wisdom, and guidance for over a thousand years.
The Gita (as it is affectionately known) is laid out as the story of a regular person, Arjuna, who has become despondent after coming to see life as a meaningless, pointless, and never-ending struggle. Arjuna is ready to quit. Sound familiar?
Krishna (a mysterious friend and hero of the story) comes to Arjuna in his time of need and counsels him on the meaning of life as well as the path that leads to purpose and deliverance.
What does Arjuna find at the end of his journey? Meaning. Tranquility. Enlightenment.
Because the struggles Arjuna faced and suffered from are the same as those we face today, the teachings of the Gita are every bit as pertinent in our era as they were over a thousand years ago when it was first recorded.
I designed my version of this enduring classic to be concise, modern, and accessible to all readers, even those with no prior knowledge of Hindu philosophy.
We behold what we are, and we are what we behold.” -The Bhagavad Gita
This book is perfect for those wanting a basic understanding of the Gita. I’ve read other versions, and this one helped me see the overall message clearly. I’ve read all of the author’s books, giving me a leg up when I moved onto original and/or heavier interpretations. -Amazon Review

About the Author
Matthew Barnes is an avid learner who spent his early years in North Carolina. During college, he experienced a stint with depression which led him to the works of the Eastern philosophers. He started writing simplified versions of the works he was inspired by in response to a friend that was struggling with religion. He hopes his attempts at simplifying the philosophies of ancient spiritual traditions will make them more accessible to Western minds, and in turn, will help bring peace to those, like his friend, who have found themselves lost in a world that, at times, seems so devoid of meaning and hope.
