  • I read this in the midst of Bakker s Prince of Nothing series The PON series is a philosophically inclined fantasy series about a holy war between several vaguely middle eastern nations The Bhagavad Gita, on the other hand, is a sacred Hindu text that teaches principles of Hindu thought and ethics through a great war I thought they d work together better than they did The problem is that Bakker s story is very very dark and the Bhagavad Gita is like most religious texts rather hopeful The Gita i [...]


  • A simple English translation of Bhagavad Gita.I don t recommend this book if you want to really know about BG, because the translations of the verses is not good.But it is a very easy read and can be used as your starting book on BG.I liked the afterword on Bhagavad Gita Henry David Thoreau.


  • At last, a translation of the Gita that is formatted so that you know where you are in the story and outside the story.A book like any sacred book to be studied, not merely read and put back on the shelf.


  • I have to teach this text to my sophos so I need to love it to teach it It is worth reading as it helps you understand a culture very different from ours It will also help you appreciate the TV show OUTSOURCE a little


  • I remember Dr Pry teaching a bit of this in one of my LVC Eng Lit classes But you know how those lit courses go, you re learning so much you don t really get a chance to delve into anything fully I m glad I was able to pick up a used copy It s very thought provoking.


  • I had to read this for a class It was really interesting to see how Krishna is portrayed as the savior I love learning about Asian religions and think that one should read the entire Gita if they want to understand anything about Hare Krishnas.


  • Pretty interesting Some people have a problem with this translation saying it lacks poetry, but there is a strong underlying rhythm in the almost blank verse translation by Miller


  • I like the idea that we should act without attachment, because that would make it impossible to carry emotional baggage Ahh this book is so refreshing and I feel nourished just reading it.


  • I truly enjoyed this and wish I had time to study it in greater depths I really connected with the passages and beliefs in here they made sense and made for good discussion.
