About The Book

The Bhagavad Gita (“The Song of the God”), a sacred Indian scripture, is considered one of the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy. In the form of a dialogue between Arjuna and Lord Krishna, it explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. This translation by poet, translator, and religious studies scholar Mani Rao makes the Gita accessible to the first-time reader and brings fresh insights for those familiar with it. Sensitive to the nuances, wordplay, and texture of the Sanskrit original, this translation has been critically acclaimed. Includes translation of the Ishavasya Upanishad.
