Product description


"This is a luminous translation that performs the exceptional feat of bringing the Gita fully alive in a Western language, combining accuracy with accessibility. In our troubled times, humanity needs the message of this sacred scripture as never before."
--Karen Armstrong, Author of The Great Transformation and A History of God

"I like Lars Martin Fosse's Gita because it is clear and straightforward."
--Margo von Romberg, Yoga Scotland
