Essays on the Gita by Sri Aurobindo: timeless, absolutely mesmerizing

Useful practical advice. Not the ultimate solution., February 4, 2006 By Varun Rai (Stanford, CA.) - See all my reviews This review is from: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Paperback)

Steven has put forwards some lasting principles which if well imbibed, will lead to a much better and satisfied life. I would like to point out though that ALL his ideas are a degenerated form of deeper true spiritual writings of the Hindu Vedas. I read 7 habbits first, and several years later I read the teachings of the Vedas. And with every passing page of the Vedas I was more and more convinced how Steven has moulded these teachings to a material form which the ordinary man, that he has become today, can grasp. The advice is good and help one improve: the principles are the DHARMAS of social life. They are the first step towards the Ultimate...but definitely not the solution. If you want to know and live the Truth, I suggest: "Essays on the Gita" by Sri Aurobindo. It is timeless, in the truest sense.
