Editorial Reviews

Review

"Of this world-beloved, timeless classic this is the most poetic rendition."        
-- Huston Smith


From the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist

Thoreau said of this Indian masterpiece that "in comparison, our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial," while Gandhi claimed that those who meditated upon it would "derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day." The sixth book of the epic Mahabharata , the Gita is one of Asia's most renowned spiritual texts. Mitchell, whose translation of the Tao Te Ching has been extraordinarily popular, offers a direct, clean translation of the Gita that reads like a series of pithy epigrams of advice and comfort. Some purists may find his simplification of the sometimes ornate, prayerful Sanskrit questionable, but for the average reader, Mitchell clarifies meaning without sacrificing beauty and emotional resonance: "Cut down this deep-rooted tree / with the sharp-edged ax of detachment: / then search for that primal Person / from whom the whole universe flows." Recommended for libraries whose patrons show strong interest in non-Western religious traditions. Patricia Monaghan
