Synopsis:

Easwaran’s best-selling translation of the Bhagavad Gita is reliable, readable, and profound. His 55-page introduction places the Gita in its historical context, presents key concepts, and brings out the universality and timelessness of its teachings. This edition includes chapter introductions, notes and a Sanskrit glossary.

Easwaran grew up in the Hindu tradition in India, learned Sanskrit from a young age, and became a professor of English literature before coming to the West. He is a gifted teacher and an authority on the Indian classics and world mysticism. 

The Gita opens, dramatically, on a battlefield, as the warrior Arjuna turns in anguish to his spiritual guide, Sri Krishna, for answers to the fundamental questions of life. Yet the Gita is not what it seems – it’s not a dialogue between two mythical figures at the dawn of Indian history. “The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but the Gita’s subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage if he or she is to emerge from life victorious.”

From the Publisher: In this translation, The Bhagavad Gita, stands out as a book of choices direct, practical, universal. Previously archaic and inaccessible, this ancient scripture is now treated afresh, showing its relevance to our times. The Bhagavad Gita portrays the meeting of man and God. On the morning of battle, facing the forces of greed, anger, and hatred, the legendary prince Arjuna loses his nerve and refuses to fight. His friend Krishna, who represents the Lord within knows better: "Your very nature will drive you to fight." The Gita, according to Easwaran, "distills the loftiest truths of India's ancient wisdom into simple, memorable poetry that haunts the mind and informs the affairs of everyday life."
