Srila Prabhupada’s original 1972 Macmillan Bhagavad-gita As It Is with elaborate commentary, original Sanskrit and English word meanings. It is a first-class EXACT reproduction of the original book. It contains all 48 original colour plates and is truly wonderful… It is the largest-selling, most widely used edition of the Gita in the world. The Bhagavad-gita that introduced Krishna to the world.
A masterpiece of scriptural literature, Bhagavad-Gita is a sacred “song” in the form of a battlefield dialogue between the Lord Sri Krishna and Arjuna, His friend and disciple. Krishna, acting as Arjuna’s advisor, instructs him in the science of self-realisation, teaching him how to live as a devotee of the Lord and to thus reach the eternal spiritual world while continuing to perform his earthly duties. Unlike other editions of the Gita, this one is presented as it is – without the slightest taint of adulteration or personal motivation. Containing the original Sanskrit text, Roman transliterations, English synonyms, translation and commentary, Bhagavad-Gita As It Is is the most complete and authoritative transmission of this timeless scripture in print and does not obscure the true spirit of Krishna’s teachings.
