About the Book
In this bold, new translation of the Gita, poet Mani Rao cuts past
conventions and uses space and language innovatively to deliver an
experience of immediacy for the reader. At the same time, she adheres
strictly to the meaning of the original and is sensitive to the nuances of the
Sanskrit original with all its wordplay and texture.
Mani Rao’s Bhagavad Gita sets a new standard for the translation of
canonical spiritual texts.
