Bhagavad Gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India’s spiritual wisdom. Spoken by Sri Krishna, to His intimate devotee Arjuna, the Gita’s 700 concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self-realisation, mankind's essential nature, our environment and, ultimately, our relationship with the absolute truth.
His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada was himself a teacher in the disciplic line from Krsna ( the speaker of the Gita ) and was an exemplar in bhakti yoga, the yoga of devotional mysticism. His translation and commentary are guided by a lifetime of scholarship and enriched by the realisations of a mature practitioner.
“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.”
—Mohandas K. Gandhi
