As part of #BlogchatterEbook carnival 2018 , many books are published and I want to read as many as possible . I scrolled to pick up the book “InstaGita” as my first read . This book is a summary of the religious book BhagavadGita . The author has focussed on writing about Gita as a self help resource skipping over the more overtly religious parts . The author has read many versions of Bhagavad Gita and it is her attempt to present the highlights of the sacred text in easily understandable form , poetic too at many places .
|Title of the Book||Insta Gita|
|Publisher||Self published in May 2018|
|Length of the Book||74 pages|
The book is divided into small chapters and every chapter is a very short read . While I was just going through the contents , the chapter “GodZilla “caught my attention . I eagerly scrolled to firstly read this chapter before I started reading the book in a Sequence . The author describes about the divine form of Krishna in this chapter , when Arjuna is given divine eyes to see the brilliance of universe in Krishna .
As this book has been written as a self help resource , you would definitely find many self help tips which have originated from the mouth of God and which you can try to follow in your life . Be it discipline and control , pain and pleasure , anger /greed and austerity , the author summarizes the Bhagavad Gita very well . While reading , you are forced to analyze what is your true nature and how your food also plays a role in defining your own nature .
Here are some of the self help tips I liked from the book :-
1. Have a disciplined life .
2. Don’t swing between extremes of pain and pleasure .
3. Chant OM and make meditation a part of your life .
4. Knowledge power increases your horsepower.
5. Even small sins are so dangerous , they can crush us if nothing else , in guilt .
