Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India's spiritual wisdom.

Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Spoken by Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead to His intimate disciple Arjuna, the Gita's seven hundred concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self realization. No other philosophical or religious work reveals, in such a lucid and profound way, the nature of consciousness, the self, the universe and the Supreme.

C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda. Bhagavad-gītā As It Is. Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (completed by disciples). rī Caitanya-caritāmṛta. Originally I wrote Bhagavad-gītā As It Is in the form in which it is presented now. When this book was first published, the original manuscript was, unfortunately, cut short to less than 400 pages, without illustrations and without explanations for most of the original verses of the Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā. In all of my other books – Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, Śrī Īśopaniṣad, etc. – the system is that I give the original verse, its English transliteration, word-for-word Sanskrit-English equivalents, translations and purports.

Abhaya Charanaravinda Bhaktivedanta Svami (born Abhay Charan De; 1 September 1896 – 14 November 1977) was an Indian spiritual teacher and the founder-preceptor of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), commonly known as the "Hare Krishna Movement". Members of the ISKCON movement view Bhaktivedānta Swāmi as a representative and messenger of Krishna Chaitanya.

Its translations and purports are the work of His Divine Grace . Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who represents a line of teachers in disciplic succession from Krishna Himself. Prabhupada's faithfulness to Krishna's teachings-and expertise in presenting them to western readers-make Bhagavad-gita As It Is true to its title. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

I was first given a copy of this most magnificent book in December 1972 on a street corner in downtown Miami by a devotee of the Hare Krishna society. He asked me for a donation and I was unable to give him anything at the time. He said he'd give me the book IF I would promise to read it "cover to cover". I turned the last page and kept my promise by early 1973.

Although Bhagavad-gita has been translated many times, Prabhupada adds a translation of singular importance with his . For this reason, I am very excited to see the publication of Bhagavad-gita As It Is by Sri . Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Dr. J. Stillson Judah, Professor of the History of Religions and Director of Libraries Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California. It will help to stop the terrible cheating of false and unauthorized 'gurus' and 'yogis' and will give an opportunity to all people to understand the actual meaning of Oriental culture.

The Bhagavad-gita is the main source-book on yoga and a concise summary of India's Vedic wisdom. Yet remarkably, the setting for this best-known classic of spiritual literature is an ancient Indian battlefield. At the last moment before entering battle, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder about the real meaning of his life. Why should he fight against his friends and relatives? Why does he exist? Where is he going after death? In the Bhagavad-gita, Lord Krsna, Arjuna's friend and spiritual master, brings His disciple from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment. In the course of doing so, Krsna concisely but definitively explains transcendental knowledge; karma-yoga, jnana-yoga, dhyana-yoga, and bhakti-yoga; knowledge of the Absolute; devotional service; the three modes of material nature; the divine and demoniac natures; and much more.

I was first given a copy of this most magnificent book in December 1972 on a street corner in downtown Miami by a devotee of the Hare Krishna society. He asked me for a donation and I was unable to give him anything at the time. He said he'd give me the book IF I would promise to read it "cover to cover". I promised.

I turned the last page and kept my promise by early 1973. I was just 18 at the time and this remarkable book had made an impression. I knew that it was all true. The path of 'Bhakti' or Devotion was a path of renunciation. I said to myself (and to Krishna), I'm not ready to give up the 'world' just yet...come back for me later...and an inner voice said, "OK."

32 years went by in a flash...and I had read the Gita at intervals in that time. I got married, had a career, had kids, got divorced, the kids grew up and all left, etc, etc. Basically, I had a life in the material world...although I always concidered myself to be spiritual and was always studying one spiritual path or another.

Then in 2005...October 24th to be exact, a hurricane by the name of Wilma blew through Miami and in the ensuing days, while cleaning up my property of broken branches and fallen trees, I would take a break from the yard work by early afternoon (I still live in Miami afterall!). During one of those breaks, I felt ready for something...empty, but in a good and receptive way. I looked around in my somewhat extensive library and the Bhagavad-gita As It IS caught my gaze. I pulled it from the shelf and decided to read it through once again. This time after finishing the 18 chapters and 700 verses, I was captivated! My realization was that obviously, whatever I put my attention on...that's where I will go. Simple enough...and very profound at the same time.

I was hungry for more. The book had made a significant impression on my more mature mind this time! I reached for a translation of the Srimad Bhagavatam by the same translator, A. C. Bhaktivedanda Swami Prabhupada and I started reading that. I found I couldn't put it down...and there were constant references back to the Gita...over and over again.

A few more months went by and I was still reading the Bhagavatam (it's very long - 18,000 verses and commentary) and I found myself going to the local Hare Krishna Temple in the Coconut Grove area of Miami. Anyway, to make a long story longer :-) I met a Guru at the Temple in the tradition of the translator (ISKCON) and got initiated in November 2008 and received my brahminical initiation in September 2009 as Garga Muni das. So, the short version is simply that this book has changed my life...and all for the better in more ways than I can describe. Read this book! And then read it again with a devotee of Sri Krishna. It will change your life as well.

An interesting question that was asked of me when I first started attending the Temple was, "You know that it says in the Bible that it's very important to love God with all your mind, heart and soul. Has anyone ever taught you HOW to do that?" I had to answer that no one had ever taught me how to love God...although I knew it was very important. This book will start to teach you about that very thing...if you will read it with an open mind and an open heart. What I found is priceless. Hare Krishna!

Not only is this perhaps the most profound book I have ever read, it is also by far the most beautifully published book I have ever had. I strongly recommend this to anyone in the process of deciding which version of the Bhagavad-gita to purchase. Before I had this, I had the Eknath Easwaran version, which was perfectly alright, but not on a level with this.

While the ideals and suggestions of this text may seem extreme and unnecessary to most people, upon reflection, it is easily recognizable that constantly chasing sense gratification (sex, food, drugs, entertainment, and so on) is ultimately extremely unsatisfying and not the best way to live. The Gita emphasizes that that mode of existence - obsession with sense pleasure - is a tremendous obstacle to spiritual progress. Pursuit of sense pleasure is massively prevalent in Western society, which now encompasses a very significant portion of the globe, and thus, this book is relevant now as much as it ever has been.

Read with an open mind, make an effort to see through what cultural biases may clash with this incredible spiritual message, and allow your reading to change you for the better.

The author is the most knowledgeable exponent of the science of Krishna or God at present and on the subject of philosophy and absolute truth this book is a must read and should be in everyone's collection.

This book changed my life. I'd tried to read other Bhagavad Gita translations, but they had no effect on me, even if I did make it through. This translation, Bhagavad Gita AS IT IS, translated by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami contains the original Sanskrit for each verse, the English translation, and an insightful explanation of many of the verses. This ancient spiritual text explains that we are not these bodies but eternal spirit souls. One can understand the science of the soul. I have read it several times, and get new insight and understanding with each reading. Skip the first chapter if it's too confusing, as it just explains who is present during the conversation between Krishna, and Arjuna. The second chapter is the Contents of the Gita summarized, which prepares the reader for the whole conversation.

You are not your mind or your body and this is not your life, it's a movie. Who's watching the movie and who's the director? Get the scoop from the producer himself, Krishna! With purports from Sri Prabhupada, find out who you really are, why we're here on earth and what we can do to turn our minds into our best friend instead of our worse enemy. Start living the life you were intended to live, read The Song of God, Bhagavad-gita.

Written in simple language but motivates beyond comprehension. One of the pious books largely followed in hinduism but could be referred by every religion on earth.

The Gitā was sung by the Lord and now brought to us by Srila Prabhupāda. All who thirst for the wisdom of India should read this book. Srila Prabhupāda's version is the closest to the original text...hence the "As-it-is"
Very Iskon-oriented. I don't like his flowery English, but now I understand better why his followers always use that flowery stuff. OK, you can come hit me with your mala bag now, ha ha.
