The Bhagavad-gita is the compact essence of all spiritual philosophy revealed in a most unlikely setting, at the onset of a world war that occurred nearly 5000 years ago. “Bhagavad-gita As It Is” is unique among the myriad Gita commentaries because the translations and purports are the work of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who represents a line of teachers in disciplic succession from Krishna Himself. Srila Prabhupada’s faithfulness to Krishna’s teachings—and expertise in presenting them to western readers—make Bhagavad-gita As It Is true to its title.

“Whether the reader be an adept of Indian spirituality or not, a reading of Bhagavad-gita As It Is will be extremely profitable, for it will allow him to understand the Gita as still today the majority of Hindus do. For many, this will be the first contact with the true India, the ancient India, the eternal India.”

“There is very little question that this edition is one of the best books available on the Gita and on devotion. Prabhupada’s translation is an ideal blend of literal accuracy and religious insight.”

Dr. Francois Chenique

“The Gita can be seen as the main literary support for the great religious civilization of India, the oldest surviving culture in the world…. The present translation and commentary is another manifestation of the permanent living importance of the Gita . Swami Bhaktivedanta brings to the West a salutary reminder that our highly activistic and one-sided culture is faced with a crisis that may end in self-destruction because it lacks the inner depth of an authentic metaphysical consciousness. Without such depth, our moral and political protestations are just so much verbiage.”
