This book contains the original Sanskrit text of the Bhagavad Gita, a translation partly by Sri Aurobindo, and commentary drawn entirely from Essays on the Gita, Sri Aurobindo's principal work on this important scripture. The editor, Anilbaran Roy, was an early disciple of Sri Aurobindo, and prepared the commentary with the permission of Sri Aurobindo. While introducing the first edition of the book in 1938 the editor wrote, The Gita is a great synthesis of Aryan spiritual culture and Sri Aurobindo's luminous exposition of it...sets out its inner significances in a way that brings them home to the modern mind. This new edition has been brought out after a long time.

Sri Aurobindo can best be described as an intellectual, linguist, freedom fighter, poet, and finally a great spiritual leader India has produced. The Aurobindo Ashram was established by him after pursuing various vocations. His writings are thought provoking. His major work The Life Divine is a best seller with amazonReview:
"But what we can do with profit is to seek in the Geeta for the actual living truths it contains,apart from their metaphysical form,to extract from it what can help us or the world at large and to put it in the most natural and vital form and expression we can find that will be suitable to the mentality and helpful to the spiritual needs of our present- day humanity." "Our object then,studying the Gita will not be a scholastic or academical scrutiny of it's thought ...We approach it for help and light and our aim must be to distinguish it's essential and living message,that in it on which humanity has to seize for it's perfection and it's highest spiritual welfare." --Sri Aurobindo
