About the Bhagavad Gita:
The Bhagavad Gita As It is the quintessential Vedic text delineating the science and application of yoga and meditation. Eternal wisdom passed down since time immemorial, it provides practical guidance on how to execute the process of self-realization regardless of the external circumstances we find ourselves in. In a world of increasing complexity, this text offers a sustainable alternative – access to a comprehensive spiritual reality, based on complete knowledge of the self and the Supreme Self, Krishna.
Written by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is is the most authoritative English translation of the text. For those seeking spiritual wisdom, a solution to the world’s woes, or an answer to life’s most difficult questions – Who am I? Why am I here? Why is there suffering? Is this life all there is? – this book is a must-read.
Well-Known Readers of the Bhagavad Gita
“When doubts haunt me when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.”
“In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad-Gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seems puny and trivial.”
~Henry David Thoreau
“I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I’ve started reading the Bhagavad Gita…I’m loving it.”
