The Great Work of Your Life
The Great Work of Your Life
Stephen Cope says that in order to have a fulfilling life you must discover the deep purpose hidden at the very core of your self. The secret to unlocking this mystery, he asserts, can be found in the pages of a two-thousand-year-old spiritual classic called the Bhagavad Gita-an ancient allegory about the path to dharma, told through a timeless dialogue between the fabled archer, Arjuna, and his divine mentor, Krishna. Cope takes readers on a step-by-step tour of this revered tale and highlights well-known Western lives that embody its central principles-including such luminaries as Jane Goodall, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony, John Keats, and Harriet Tubman, along with stories of ordinary people as well. If you’re feeling lost in your own life’s journey, The Great Work of Your Life may help you to find and to embrace your true calling. Stephen Cope, MSW, Kripalu's Scholar Emeritus, is the founder and former Director of the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living. Stephen is a best-selling author, well known for making the sometimes esoteric scriptures of yoga accessible to the mainstream reader. He has more than a quarter million books in print, translated into 14 languages, and has received international acclaim for his work.
