The definitive English edition of Bhagavad-Gita. A masterpiece of scriptural literature, Bhagavad-Gita is a sacred “song” in the form of a battlefield dialogue between the Lord Sri Krsna and Arjuna, His friend and disciple. Krsna, acting as Arjuna’s advisor, instructs him in the science of self-realization, teaching him how to live as a devotee of the Lord and to thus reach the eternal spiritual world while continuing to perform his earthly duties. Unlike other editions of the Gita, this one is presented as it is – without the slightest taint of adulteration or personal motivation. Containing the original Sanskrit text, Roman transliteratins, English synonyms, translation and commentary, Bhagavad-Gita As It Is is the most complete and authoritative transmission of this timeless scripture in print and the only one that does not obscure the true spirit of Krsna’s teachings.
