About the Author
Isaac Bentwich M.D. is a longtime practitioner and teacher of Yoga and Meditation. He is also a Medical Doctor and scientist, who has founded three life-science technology companies, leading revolutions in medicine, genomics, and environment conservation. His work is featured in top-tier scientific and business publications. In genomics, Dr. Bentwich and his colleagues analyzed the human genome, leading to a landmark discovery of hundreds of novel genes, based on which they delivered novel diagnostic tests, for patients of cancer and other diseases. In conservation, Dr. Bentwich and his team de- veloped an agricultural technology that allows farmers to grow more crop using less water and other resources. Dr. Bentwich received his Medical Doctor degree from Ben Gurion University, in Israel in 1989. He is also trained in Ayurvedic medicine, and in Yoga therapy. The vision and innovations that underly each of the companies he founded and led, came through months of silent meditation retreats, in the Galilee and at the foothills of the Himalayas. His work on this translation of the Gita has spanned twelve years. Dr. Bentwich has also founded and initially funded Harmonia, a non-profit organization that strives to facilitate inner-growth, through harmony of body, mind and spirit. It works to make broadly available Wisdom teachings of different traditions, with an emphasis on adapting and making these relevant and accessible to contemporary seekers. For those in need, Harmonia strives to provide these teachings freely or significantly subsidized. Its activities include book publication (through Harmonia Publications), online and in-person workshops, and meditation training for school-kids.
