The Bhagavad Gita

A Walkthrough for Westerners


“This book meets a vital spiritual need. Readers of all levels can use it to easily access where they are on the road to self-mastery and self-realization, and determine areas of their lives where they need to focus their spiritual practices.”

-          Bill Gaum, writer,

        Publisher, Pearl Publishing of Mount Shasta


Several months ago we finished your book in our spiritual study circle … savoring it like a rare treat. We even drew out the last few meetings so we didn’t have to say farewell to our fond readings, discussions, and contemplations. It helped change our consciousness. We fell in love with it.”

-       Connie Shaw, Consultant-Speaker, author of Wake Up Laughing


“Thank you for this wonderful book. I found the review instruments illuminated principles I had not heard the first or even the second time around. This is a book that quietly asks much of the reader, and gives back so much more.”

-     Laurie Viera Rigler, co-author of He Rents, She Rents

Roadmaps is a clear, comprehensive review of the world’s highest mystical and spiritual principles given to humanity thousands of years ago in the universally acclaimed Bhagavad Gita. Now, for the first time, these ancient yet modern teachings are presented as a self-inquiry manual, a respectful guidebook to help you chart your course to self-realization, the most prized goal in spirituality.


This is a veritable treasure map that will show you how to be a happier, more peaceful and loving human being now, today, in your daily life.


The moment you see your own inner beauty
and are so filled with it that you forget all else,
you become free from all worldly bond.

You realize that you are all the beauty, all the glory,
all the power, all the magnificence of the universe
for the jiva (the individual) is the reflection
of the Divine in the mirror of nature.

Once you attain this Self-realization you recognize
everyone else as but the reflection of yourself.
This is the true basis of the unity of humanity.
                                                   - Sathya Sai Baba


As you go through this book, you will find yourself no longer merely reading, but drawn into it, having to think, act and evaluate. You become deeply and personally involved in your own spiritual development.


This might be the most important reading you ever do. The destination is your divinity deep inside. In the end it’s all you have.
