Description
Unlike all other English translations of the "Bhagavad Gita" -- which are either too literal and abstract, or written in very formal, incomprehensible English, or are philosophically one-sided -- this reader-friendly “ transcreation” offers an unbiased philosophical perspective and presents the main religious and philosophical themes of the "Bhagavad Gita" in simple, ordinary language easily accessible to today's readers. It enables them to read this great work as if it were originally written in their own language -- and to capture the excitement of discovering its relevance to their own lives. Begins with a brief introduction and a short story outline of the "Bhagavad Gita." Presents the actual transcreation of the text of the "Bhagavad Gita in eighteen chapters -- each beginning with a succinct summary of the main issues covered -- thus providing a continuing thematic map to the philosophical religious territory of the "Bhagavad Gita. Concludes with an "Afterword" that presents a succinct analysis of classical, modern, contemporary, and recent interpretations of the "Bhagavad Gita" -- and reveals the importance of this great text for Hindus as well as for the world. Translates all Sanskrit words into simple English words, and describes difficult words and major names in simple language in footnotes at the bottom of each page and in a glossary at the back of the text. For anyone interested in the "Bhagavad Gita"
