After a tremendous journey from start to finish, what began as a succinct, literal translation of the Bhagavad-gita evolved into a penetrating, 223-page thematic explanation of the Bhagavad-gita in its entirety.
Translation and commentary by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
The Bhagavad-gita is a must-read for anyone interested in the meaning of life. One of the world’s best known literatures, it is often considered the essence of all wisdom. It’s a conversation between the military hero Arjuna and his friend/advisor/charioteer Krishna, spoken just before the apocalyptic Battle of Kurukshetra. Subjects they discuss include the eternality of the self, destiny, the source of our being, and how to achieve genuine, long-term peace and happiness.
