|Somebody sent me the Bhagavad-Gita and I am very interested in it. I think the trouble with Hinduism is not in the great original texts but in all the interpretations of those texts in later centuries - hence their screwy metaphysics etc. But the spiritual wisdom of the Gita is tremendous - and fits in very well with Christianity in itis practical statements about detachment etc.
