About the Author
Michael Beloved (Yogi Madhvacharya) took his current body in 1951 in Guyana. In 1965, while living in Trinidad, he instinctively began doing yoga postures and trying to make sense of the supernatural side of life. Later on, in 1970, in the Philippines, he approached a Martial Arts Master named Mr. Arthur Beverford, explaining to the teacher that he was seeking a yoga instructor. Mr. Beverford identified himself as an advanced disciple of Rishi Singh Gherwal, an astanga yoga master. Mr. Beverford taught the traditional Astanga Yoga with stress on postures, attentive breathing and brow chakra centering meditation. In 1972, Madhvacharya entered the Denver Colorado Ashram of Kundalini Yoga Master Sri Harbhajan Singh. There he took instruction in Bhastrika Pranayama and its application to yoga postures. He was supervised mostly by Yogi Bhajan's disciple named Prem Kaur. In 1979 Madhvacharya formally entered the disciplic succession of the Brahma-Madhava-Gaudiya Sampradaya through Swami Kirtanananda, who was a prominent sannyasi disciple of the Great Vaishnava Authority Srila Swami Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, the exponent of devotion to Sri Krishna. After carefully studying and practicing the devotional process introduced by Sri Swami Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, Madhvacharya was inspired to do this translation of the Bhagavad Gita, which initially was published hard bound, under the title of Bhagavad Gita in Its Own Time and Place, by Asian Printery, Gujarat, India. The translation without commentary is published as Bhagavad Gita English. The translation with sansikrit text and word-for-word meanings, is published as Bhagavad Gita Revealed. This publication does not concern making or controlling disciples. It is designed to give readers insight to what Sri Krishna and Arjuna discussed in the discourse, without any effort to convince or convert. It is free of missionary overtones.

For those wanting no Bull S***.
Explained with true clarity. It has changed my life.
My favorite translation. It is on its own category. A gift for the serious yogis(students).
