About the Author
Vraja Kishor was discovered by Bhakti-Yoga ("The yoga of divine love") in 1989 as the unlikely result of his involvement in Punk Rock! He became formally initiated into Sri Caitanya's Rupanuga Bhakti-Sadhana in 1992 and personally learned the classical Sanskrit scriptures (Bhagavad-Gita, Bhagavata-Purana, Bhakti-Rasamrta-Sindhu, etc) from his kind guru. He is the author of several philosophical and devotional magazines and booklets that were important in the sub-cultural evolution in America via the "straight-edge punk" scene. Was a regular columnist in Back to Godhead magazine. He helped his guru write a book on Bhakti-Rasamrita-Sindhu. Currently he is writing prolifically and producing many books, including: 27 Stars 27 Gods: The Astrological Mythology of Ancient India. In 1997 he married Shyama Sakhi. They are raising three children. Since 2009 they live in South-West Japan and have a small, friendly, Krishna temple in their home, called the Ter Kadamba Mandir. He and his wife also record and distribute musical kirtan under that same name.

Indeed, the author engenders that rare intellect and heart that are capable of learning and assimilating an ancient text and then reconstituting it for a modern audience. His `translation' is not from one language to another -- at least not in a conventional sense -- but rather from one audience to another. He takes a cryptic, often misunderstood scripture from yesteryear and spoonfeeds it to his contemporaries in his own inimitable way. Vraja Kishor -- I love you!"
--Steven J. Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa) is author of 31 books on Vaishnavism and related subjects, including Gita on the Green: The Mystical Tradition Behind Bagger Vance (New York, NY: Continuum International Publishing, 2001); Holy War: Violence the Bhagavad Gita (Poquoson, VA: Deepak Heritage Books, 2002); and Krishna's Song: A New Look at the Bhagavad Gita (Westport, CT.: Praeger Publishers, 2007)
I'd recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the Gita. Beginners would get a feel for the flow of the conversation and those more "read up" on the subject would enjoy the leisurely pace of the work like strolling through familiar woods.
