As Ram Dass says in his introduction, this book is a series of reflections about the major themes of the Gita--themes which touch on the various yogas, or "paths for coming to union with God." In other words, Paths to God is not another translation of the Gita, but a retranslation of its principles into contemporary western life--a guide to making the wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita relevant and applicable to our lives. Ram Dass suggests that there are states of consciousness that are always available to us if we do not veil ourselves from them through a blind attachment to our own thoughts. Whether we realize this or not depends on our level of self-awareness. The Bhagavad Gita presents us with a template for expanding the definitions of ourselves, and thus enables us to appreciate our lives in a whole new context.
