Bhagavad Gita is the seminal South Asian pre-modern yogic text that has captured the imagination of both popular and scholastic audiences in both India and the West. Its practicality helps explain its enormous popularity as does its diversity of yogic options. While affirming the transcendental path of meditation as seen in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, it also highlights the paths of devotion (bhakti), action (karma), and knowledge (jnana). The Gita, as it is popularly known, is a wisdom text with sustaining potency across time and space and a practical handbook for the modern American yogi.
