About the Book
The Bhagavadgita, or ‘Sacred Song’, holds an assured place among the world’s great scriptures. In fourteen hundred lines of verse, the relationship of man with God—and the intense joy of divine love—are celebrated, in a language that is precise and beautiful.The Gita is a tale of action, taking the form of a dialogue between Arjuna and Krishna on the eve of a battle. Krishna teaches the fearful Arjuna the need for action and the requirement that he—like all mankind—take his place in the world in love and faith. Only through the search for God and the Absolute will the true self be discovered.This edition of the Bhagavadgita offers the Sanskrit text as well as Radhakrishnan’s English translation and a commentary which has become a classic. His clear understanding of the profound wisdom contained within the Gita ensures an equally clear vision of its powerful and eternal message, one that cannot fail to touch the minds and spirits of all those who reach for it.
