Bhagwat gita

Bhagwat gita

This translation is an unbiased one, by Annie Besant 1905. In my humble opinion a pretty accurate translation, word for word, Sanskrit to English. The Introduction, first 15 pages give a lucid, quick to grasp….without tears….feel of the Sanskrit language and the nuances, even your Sanskrit teacher will not tell (probably won’t know).

I am so happy reading this.

Gita must be the most translated book ever. And Gita’s Sanskrit is relatively simple; anything simple can not be of a mystic quality (no mist!). So, the translator adds his own fog into the Hindi or English version.
