In the Bhagavadgita, Krsna exploys various teaching methods to aid Arjuna`s comprehension and to remove his misunderstandings. He often explains a difficult statement with the aid of a simile drawn from everyday human experience and the Bhagavadgita contains some of the most suggestive and beautiful similes in the entire sacred literature of Hinduism. The similes of Krsna add a beautiful visual dimension to words and invite reflection and exploration.

In this text, Prof. Rambachan has chosen twelve similes for reflection. They deal with diverse but interrelated matters such as the nature of the self, death, scriptures, self-control, peace, wisdom and the nature of God. These similes offer an exciting entrance into the Hindu world-view and the author invites us to explore the inexhaustible richness of each image.
