Re: hindu philosophy of conduct: Prof M.Rangacharya

This set of books is excellent, save some sociological aspects
discussed in Chapter 2 that have been superseded by more modern
theory.

Professor Rangacharya was a man of very deep learning. Unfortunately,
the books are out of print, and it doesn't appear that any new
publisher has picked up the rights to print them.

I daresay it is the best exposition of Bhagavad-gita in English.
It is essentially a transciption of lectures that he gave at
the turn of the century to men and women in Triplicane, Madras.
I was lucky enough to secure the books from my grandfather's
collection.
