This is the black and white version of “Song Divine.” It has all the same content as the original book, the difference is that the illustrations are shown in black and white, rather than in color.
There has been a renaissance with all things Vedic these days. Yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda have become an important part of our own western culture. Lissa Coffey saw this coming back in 2004 when her bestselling book “What’s Your Dosha, Baby” came out. “American Veda” by Phil Goldberg came out in 2010 and stoked the trend further. It’s taken a while to get here, but we are definitely here now. It is a natural progression when we get into all this to search for more, and all roads lead to the spiritual aspect of it, the roots.
That’s what the Bhagavad Gita is all about. But even with the editions available in English, there hasn’t been one that has captured the attention of the west, one that is easily accessible, and easy to relate to without massive explanation. A long-time student of Vedanta, Lissa Coffey saw this need. She learned so much from the Bhagavad Gita that she wanted others to understand just how rich and wonderful it is, and how much it meant to her.
Lissa Coffey, an award-winning songwriter, put her skills to work. Song Divine is written in verse and rhyme, the way the Bhagavad Gita (translated to “The Song of God” from Sanskrit) was originally intended. It is poetic, taking away the heaviness of trying to decipher the original text and leaving the pure, simple, spiritual truths.
Song Divine includes illustrations by acclaimed artist Rajesh Nagulakonda, adding a colorful creative component to the text, as so much can be conveyed through images. Song Divine is appealing to all ages, and all cultures. It is a unique blend of east and west, ancient and modern, providing the universal spiritual messages that we so desperately need to hear right now.
