Publishers Weekly 'This translation of the Gita brings this vital Hindu text alive for Western audiences. It may be the best English edition of the Gita for enticing customers to take a dip into a dazzling river of divine knowledge.' New Age Retailer" --New Age Retailer

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By S. KUMAR on August 11, 2010
Format: Paperback
Bhagavad-Gita's flow of philosophy and the connections between the verses and the logic are uniquely brilliant. Bhagavad-Gita is meant for the enlightenment of humanity and remains vital today. In the West, the Gita has had profound influence on philosophy and literature and has been studied by virtually all of the major thinkers.

For more than a decade, I, as a seeker of truth, have been sincerely searching for an easily accessible Bhagavad-Gita translation which also faithfully retains the original message of the Gita without speculation/vagueness.

After extensive comparative studies of numerous translations, I found out that this book is a definitive translation:
- It's easy-to-read as well as faithful to the original spirit of the Gita
- The verses have been arranged into small logical sets and given thematic topics which I find it very helpful
- The presentation is brilliant, engaging and universal in its appeal
- This is not from an arm-chair philosopher. The author is a practitioner which means he's put his heart and soul into this work.

I've been attending weekly classes held at our local public library based on Ranchor Prime's, BHAGAVAD GITA, TALKS BETWEEN THE SOUL AND GOD, for the past three months.

My first ever copy of the Bhagavad-gita (Song of God) was BHAGAVAD-GITA, AS IT IS, translation and commentary by his Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivendanta Swami Prabhupada, was given to me in 1968 at the Boston Airport by a Hare Krishna devotee; and, although I tried to read it during my flight to Toronto, I mostly studied the pictures which were, I thought at the time, somewhat strange and scary. I was at a loss to know how one with a Christian background should engage in reading sacred Vedic literature which, in this case, opens on a battlefield in which Krishna (God) is speaking to His dear friend and pure devotee, Arjuna, about the moral and philosophical issues inherent in/to warfare. Keep in mind, too, that 1968 was not a great year for young American troops fighting in Vietnam and their family members and friends anxiously awaiting their return, not to mention the fact that the Krishna Consciousness Movement itself was relatively new to the collective American psyche and, as such, potentially threatening to many. Personally, I never could 'unpack' my first copy of the Bhagavad-gita, although I returned to it intermittently over a span of forty plus years before I eventually found myself in the company of advanced devotees who were able to help 'open' Srila Prabhupada's wonderful book for me.

Having written this, I urge anyone who is even remotely interested in becoming familiar with the Bhagavad-gita to read this book. Ranchor Prime was inspired to write it for the benefit of his own children.

The Bhagavad Gita has been around for 5,000 years, offering spiritual guidance for all aspects of life. Originally writing this version for his teenage children, Ranchor Prime has brought the ancient wisdom down to a level where it can be easily understood and applied. While the Bhagavad Gita originates from what is now India, its wisdom goes beyond any region or religious path and offers spiritual guidance and encouragement for anyone wishing to lead a God-conscious life. I recently purchased this book for a jail inmate, who promptly started to share it with fellow inmates because of its usefulness and applicability in all situations of life.
