The Gita, as Sadhu Vaswani describes it, is the Bible of Humanity, the Universal Scripture. It is not just meant for scholars and philosophers, but ordinary mortals like us; and Rev. Dada's purpose in offering the Gita “in a nutshell” is to make it accessible, comprehensible to us all. To this end, Rev. Dada offers us succinct summaries of each chapter and follows it up with his comments and exercises which lead us to think for ourselves and make choices that apply to our own lives.
