Review: Aksara Bhagavad Gita (Imperishable Gita)
Aksara Bhagavad Gita can be called the conceptualized version of the original Gita. While most of the other books on Gita are semantic-based, this one focuses more on concepts.
Author Ravindra Rao has explained several characteristics of God and Gita in the book, along with the right ways to use these characteristics. He has discussed several branches of knowledge, such as law, management, language, etc. in the form of short stories and fictional write-ups.
If you are someone who is keen to learn about the scriptures of all religions, then Aksara Bhagavad Gita is the best book for you. It is a one-stop work that provides a universal explanation and set of ideas to understand the scriptures of any religion, philosophy, or ideology.

The author has written the book with a whole new approach towards Bhagavad Gita. There are stories and instances written well to express the essence of life and related things in a practical manner.
For example, there is a story about a girl who lives out of the town away from home. When she returns home, her father asks if she missed him. She doesn’t say anything but smiles. Now, what is the meaning of the smile? It all depends on the perception of the person.

Another concept I loved in the book is the one that explains “Alone Known By Himself”. You would love to read the book to understand this and other such concepts which are a very crucial part of our lives.
Aksara Bhagavad Gita book also says that the things which are found in Mahabharata are found everywhere. There is nothing that didn’t happen in Mahabharata and can be found in the universe. These lines show how complete the Mahabharat is.
Another great thing author Haribakth has done in the book is including a table after every chapter to showcase the subjects raised, issues to be considered, and the possible solutions. The last column (possible things or solutions) will actually make you think about things and put you in deep thoughts.
Talking about the writing skills and language of the book, the content is easy to read and consume. There are some blank pages in the book, which adds to the length of the already lengthy book. While it’s a must-read book for everyone, the people who are oriented towards spirituality, religion, scriptures, etc. will find it a great book.
