Bhaktivedanta Book Trust press release
The award-winning book Vanity Karma: Ecclesiastes, the Bhagavad-gita, and the meaning of life is now available as a high-quality ebook at the Kindle Store, on Google Play, and on iBooks.
What is life for? What may give it meaning? Does it have any meaning at all?
Such questions are independently explored both in the wisdom book Ecclesiastes and in the Bhagavad-gītā. In Vanity Karma, wisdom meets wisdom as these two perennial classics come together, uniting in a fascinating exploration.
Jayadvaita Swami, an American monk in the Indian tradition of Krishna spirituality, offers us a deep and authentic spiritual understanding that, we may find, can infuse our lives with meaning and with joy.
“As a scholar of Ecclesiastes, I am deeply impressed with his grasp of the book’s message. I enthusiastically recommend this book to all.” –Tremper Longman III, author of the New International Commentary on the book of Ecclesiastes
Vanity Karma is the winner of the 2016 Benjamin Franklin gold award given by the Independent Book Publishers Association for the year’s best book in the category “Religion.”
