The Bhagavad Gita
The Bhagavad Gita, “The
Song of the Lord,” is the best known and most read of all the Indian
scriptures, featured on college reading lists, quoted in yoga magazines, found
in all good libraries and bookstores, and recognized as part of the wisdom
literature of all time. Easwaran held the Gita to be India’s greatest gift to
the world, and he found in it his most profound source of inspiration. He
started teaching classes on the Gita in Berkeley in the sixties, and continued
to bring his unfailing enthusiasm to a wide audience throughout his life.
Readers have always appreciated the authenticity of his translation, which
regularly tops the bestseller list of its genre and has consistently been the
bestselling book for Nilgiri Press.
What people are saying - Write a review
This is a very readable interpretation of the Gita. The language is modern and does not use the King James Version grammar of "Thee, Thy, Thou" that are distracting in other interpretations. I have read Gandhi's and Yogananda's version of the Gita and struggled through them due to language. I prefer Easwaran.
What is missing is an easily consumable list of characters and their meaning. I know there are different interpretations of which emotions/mental components the characters represent, but I prefer Yogananda's so I copied the diagram from Yogananda's book and used it as a bookmark in Easwaran's.

Only finished reading the sample copy but its so relaxing and has self realizing texts. Will be buying full version and can't wait to read it all.
