  • Bhagavad Gita as it is.

    This book is well written, however, the author narrates his sectarian knowledge throughout the commentary. It feels like reading the Bible or Quran, but in Sanskrit and if that is what you are looking for then definitely buy this book. However this addition seems to be in opposition to Current Hindu philosophy. I own a hard copy of this and three other translations. I have read this completely twice. In the commentary, in the beginning the author says that only this version of the Bhagavad Gita written by him is authentic and to prove this he gives a long list of disciplic succession among which after cross-referencing, 7 to 19 people have no disciplic record regarding who they are. No birth, death, guru's, ECT. The author of organization uses a verse from Padma Puran to prove their succession i.e. Sampraday-vihina, but cannot show in which Kanda of the Puran the verse is found. Then the author resorts to, tenth chapter of Garga Sangita to prove their succession, and fails to provide the whole text of the Sangita and then provide a fictional location of the verse. There are many verses which have been translated wrong ie. 2.46 and and many important verses which have been partially translated and explained ie. 2.69,4.18, etc. Purport of many verses have unscientific facts ie. 2.18, ECT. Apart from that the Author had problems with anyone from any other schools of ideology to a great extent, he referred to Kapila, Buddha & Advaitins as demon, imposter, rascals, ECT.

  • A Read To Catalyse Deep Transformation

    I have lived with this book for more than 30 years now. It's become the basis for most of my other transformational study. In the first (of eighteen chapters) we are coaxed into identifying with Arjuna, the noble warrior, who is willing to suffer lifelong disgrace from his peers rather than participate in what he perceives as impending genocide. For the remainder of the book we hope against hope that Arjuna can find the true path of courage to traverse. His Divine Grace A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami helps us make the appropriate identification with Arjuna as he presses Krishna for reasonable answers to his questions. Thus he succeeds in making the book available to the reader in the way that was intended by the original author Vedavyasa who inserted this gem of spiritual wisdom into his great epic Mahabharata. The Bhagavad Gita is recognized as being the seminal text on bhakti yoga, the yoga of divine love. I have given this book 5 stars because it has empowered me to be able to experience the love which these genuine spiritual teachers have for their aspiring disciples.
