Description

by Swami Satchidananda

The Complete Bhagavad Gita.

From the Forward:

Such a great work has been taken on by Swami Satchidananda. There is a reason behind it. Whether he is aware of the great quality he possesses or not, all his listeners and readers are very much aware of that quality; that is the simplicity and clarity of his expression. The Bhagavad Gita, through his pen, finds a lucid expression and meaning very essential for a modern reader. His words reach the very depth of the heart of the reader. What else should the expression need? Rhetoric, rhythm and rhyme are not that essential as the simplicity and sincerity of thought. Sri Swamiji is the foremost in that art.”

Reviews:

“Swami Satchidananda is one of the pioneers … able to interpret the Gita to the West with power that has changed people’s lives. This new commentary is therefore to be welcomed by all who treasure the wisdom of India and want to see it brought to bear on the problems of the West.” —Father Bede Griffiths

“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.” —Thoreau
