 About the Book 

The eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad Gita (c.500 BC), the glory of Sanskrit literature, encompass the whole spiritual struggle of a human soul, and the three central themes of this immortal poem arise from the symphonic vision of God in all thingsMoreThe eighteen chapters of the Bhagavad Gita (c.500 BC), the glory of Sanskrit literature, encompass the whole spiritual struggle of a human soul, and the three central themes of this immortal poem arise from the symphonic vision of God in all things and of all things in God.The task of truly translating such a work is indeed formidable. To hope for success in it the translator must at least possess three qualities. He must be an artist in words as well as a Sanskrit scholar, and above all, perhaps, he must be deeply sympathetic with the spirit of the original. Mr. Mascaró has succeeded so well because he possesses all these qualifications - The Times Literary Supplement.
