From the Introduction

You are about to have the profound pleasure of reading one of the truly great books in the history of the world. Not only is it a spiritual monument—an essential scripture of Hinduism, recited daily for two millennia and to this very day, whose teachings have spread throughout Asia and around the globe—it is also a literary masterpiece, the linchpin of a great epic of war and peace, honor and disgrace, loyalty and betrayal. It is a book people everywhere in the world return to again and again throughout their lives for insight into the nature of reality.


What the Critics are Saying

“I have read several English interpretations of the Bhagavad Gita, and so far this is the easiest read I have experienced. There is a good introduction, along with explanations of names in the back, along with an index. For those that want to get a good introduction, with an easy read, this is the book for you.”

—Claude Mundy
Amazon.com

 

“I like Lars Martin Fosse’s Gita because it is clear and straightforward.”

—Margo von Romberg
Yoga Scotland

 

“The Lars Martin Fosse translation shows the Devanagari in a large and readable font. . . . Therefore, the serious student of Sanskrit will purchase this edition of the Bhagavad Gita.”

—Anon
Amazon.com

 

“The introduction is worth the price alone—covering the history of the Mahabarata epic, India’s great contribution to mythological and religious writing. The translation goes verse by verse with the Sanskrit text of the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute’s critical edition. This makes a handy reference for the Sanskrit scholar. There is a comprehensive glossary of names and a good index. If you are studying this work for comparative religions, great books, mythology or other college work, you will find this a useful edition.”

—Joanna Daneman
Amazon.com

 

“I think that Fosse’s book is distinguished by his clear and informative introduction to the Gita for the general reader. He does a good job of placing the work in the Hindu tradition and gives some idea of its history in English. There is a glossary of names (since Fosse uses the many epithets from the original in his translation) and an index. As with the other books from YogaVidya.com, the original Sanskrit is given along with the English translation, verse by verse. . . . Bottom line: this is a fine addition to the list of excellent English translations of the Gita, handsomely presented as usual by YogaVidya.com, and a good choice for first-time readers and for those who know Sanskrit.”

—Dennis Littrell
Amazon.com

 

“This is a luminous translation that performs the exceptional feat of bringing the Gita fully alive in a Western language, combining accuracy with accessibility. In our troubled times, humanity needs the message of this sacred scripture as never before.”

—Karen Armstrong
Author of The Great Transformation and A History of God
