I stand on the shoulders of a giant. I use Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad Gita: A New Translation and Commentary as my primary reference. Maharishi’s emphasis on turning the mind within to the field of least activity through the practice of Transcendental Meditation and my emphasis on the Yoga of action — the practice of Karma Yoga — lead me to alter his translation and differ substantially in commentary. TM prepares the mind for action to achieve the highest levels of spiritual and material wellbeing (pulling the arrow back on the bowstring). The practice of Karma Yoga advocated here is that action (taking aim and the arrow flying forward, ). The practice of Karma Yoga brings to fruition any practice which quiets the mind and prepares the practitioner for action.
