A sloka-by-sloka interpretation of one of the world's most enduring and influential spiritual texts of the twentieth century. Unlike other interpretations, Gandhi's commentary is direct and to the point, not offering an opinion on the meaning of the text, but fleshing out the message, often relating it to his own extraordinary experiences. It is not a manual of dos and don'ts; rather it is a guide to the challenges we all face in our lives. It expounds the profound idea that nothing done in the path of truth is ever lost; there is no harm, no fear in following it. Gandhi's Gita is also a call to detached service, a 'gospel of selfless action'. It is, in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, 'an empire of thought' that everyone can benefit from, regardless of religion, beliefs or background.

A faithful rendition of the 2000-year-old 'Song Celestial', Bibek Debroy's translation resonates with the spirit of the original, while using modern idiom and language. He captures, verse by verse, the essence of this ancient philosophical poem, which debates eternal questions of right and wrong, action and consequence, and the conflicting nature of duty and love.

The Bhagavad Gita is a comprehensive spiritual guide of Hinduism, which includes the essence of the Vedas, the Upanishads, and all the other systems of Hindu philosophy. It therefore incorporates infinite wisdom in 700 verses. The Gita has noble philosophy, art and literature. The subject matter is in the form of a dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna. The thoughts expressed by Krishna are quite deep. Mahatma Gandhi said that when disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go to the Bhagavad Gita. I read a verse here and there, I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies - and my life has been full of tragedies - and if they have left no visible, no indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.
This translation stands out from the many others first of all in its careful faithfulness to the original language, but also for the extensive tools for understanding it provides. It is accompanied by detailed explanatory notes, as well as by the entire Sanskrit text on facing pages--both in the original Devanagri alphabet and in a romanized version that allows the reader to approximate the sounds of this work (a pronunciation guide is also provided). Also included is a literal, word-for-word translation for comparison; extensive material on the background, symbolism, and influence of the Gita; and an exhaustive glossary of terms.
