about

At last, an edition of the Bhagavad Gita that speaks with unprecedented fidelity and clarity, letting the profound beauty and depth of this classic shine through. It contains an unusually informative introduction, the Sanskrit text of the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute's critical edition, an accurate and accessible English translation, a comprehensive glossary of names and epithets and a thorough index. From the Introduction: You are about to have the profound pleasure of reading one of the truly great books in the history of the world. Not only is it a spiritual monument—an essential scripture of Hinduism, recited daily for two millennia and to this very day, whose teachings have spread throughout Asia and around the globe—it is also a literary masterpiece, the linchpin of a great epic of war and peace, honor and disgrace, loyalty and betrayal. It is a book people everywhere in the world return to again and again throughout their lives for insight into the nature of reality. "This is a luminous translation that performs the exceptional feat of bringing the Gita fully alive in a Western language, combining accuracy with accessibility. In our troubled times, humanity needs the message of this sacred scripture as never before." --Karen Armstrong, Author of The Great Transformation and A History of God Table of Contents: Introduction Arjuna's Despair Theory Action Knowledge, Action and Renunciation Renunciation Meditation Knowledge and Discernment The Liberating Brahman The Royal Science Power His Cosmic Form Devotion The Field and Its Knower The Three Properties The Supreme Spirit The Divine and the Demonic The Three Kinds of Faith Liberation and Renunciation Names and Nicknames Contributors Index
