BBT Bhagavad Gita As It Is (English) Hardbound by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India’s spiritual wisdom. Spoken by Lord Sri Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, to His intimate devotee Arjuna, the Gita’s 700 concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self-realization. Indeed, there is no work even comparable in its revelations of man’s essential nature, his environment and, ultimately, his relationship with God. His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada is uniquely qualified to present this English translation and commentary on Bhagavad-gita. He is the world’s foremost Vedic scholar and teacher, and he is also the current representative of the unbroken chain of fully self-realized spiritual masters beginning with Lord Krishna Himself. Thus, unlike other editions of the Gita, this one is presented as it is—without the slightest taint of adulteration of personal motivation. Replete with sixteen full-color plates, this new edition is certain to stimulate and enlighten any reader with its ancient yet thoroughly timely message. “In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita, in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial.” —Henry David Thoreau “I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-gita. It was the fist of books’ it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another rage and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson “When doubts haunt me, when disappoints stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.” —Mohandas K. Gandhi 0 stars, based on 0 reviews 0 5

Bhagavad-gita As It Is

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

The Bhagavad-gita is the compact essence of all spiritual philosophy; at the onset of a world war, the warrior Arjuna asks his friend Krishna about the purpose of life, the difference between the self and the material body, and how to understand the ultimate cause of all causes. In just over seven hundred verses, Krishna comprehensively answers all of Arjuna’s questions and then reveals His identity as the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself, appearing on earth to usher in a new era of spiritual understanding.

Krishna teaches that the essence of the yoga system—and the ultimate goal of all pious works, meditation, and austerity—is to develop an attitude of loving service to the Supreme Person. His ultimate instruction, “surrender to Me,” challenges us all to transcend “religion” or “belief” and enter the realm of bhakti—devotional service—which alone can fully satisfy the self.

Bhagavad-gita As It Is is unique among Gita commentaries. Its 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. 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.

Since its publication in 1970, Bhagavad-gita As It Is has become the standard reference edition of the Gita worldwide.
