This book attempts to expound the ethical philosophy of the Gita mainly in the light of Visistadvaita by adopting western methods of critical enquiry.
While the Upanishads enshrine the intuitions of Brahman and the Vedanta Sutras establish their metaphysical basis, the Gita brings out the essentials of the ethical religion of the Upanishads and dispels the misconception that Vedanta does not stress the moral values of experience.
The metaphysics of morals as set forth in the Gita and its philosophy of the self are developed in its first six chapters. The ethical religion of the Gita is outlined in the next six chapters. In the last six chapters, the Divine teacher sums the Vedantic religion of universal redemption.
