"The Gita itself is a complex vessel containing a vast ocean of knowledge, yet, Lokmanya Tilak was able to successfully capture and present the Gita through his work. A reader of the Gita Rahasya is able to become knowledgeable in all the scriptures.
It is nearly impossible to simplify a philosophical work without elaborating – simplicity and summary are contradictory. A summary often tends to be abstruse. To express Lokmanya’s subtle and deep thoughts in today’s parlance with clarity and brevity are a herculean effort.
Arun Tiwari has a combination of modern education and traditional spiritual upbringing, which he lends aptly to his writing. He is compassionate and so his words convey kindness. This is not merely a task of authorship but a devoted worship of the Gita.”
- Mahamahopadhyaya Sadhu Bhadreshdas (Bochasanwasi Akshar Purushottam Sanstha (BAPS))
"Lokmanya BalGangadhar Tilak wrote The Gita Rahasya as an extensive commentary on The Bhagavad-Gita in order to stroke a feeling of nationalism amongst Indians who were ruled by the British during those days. This book meticulously retains the structure of the original book while presenting the thoughts of Lokmanya Tilak in a language and a style that belongs to this time and day.
Arun Tiwari, through this book has proved quite brilliantly that Hinduism is a self-perpetuating religion, which shows the way of constant spiritual reinterpretation leading to life which is self-perpetuating, self-renewing and which for the individual and for the world may be eternal. Reflection and self-correction is woven into our DNA. Our freedoms reside within us. "
- Dr Vijay Bhatkar (Chancellor, Nalanda University)
