"No work in all Indian literature is more quoted, because none is better loved, in the West, than the Bhagavad Gita. Translation of such a work demands not only knowledge of Sanskrit, but an inward sympathy with the theme and a verbal artistry. For the poem is a symphony in which God is seen in all things....The Swami does a real service for students by investing the beloved Indian epic with fresh meaning. Whatever our outlook may be, we should all be grateful for the labor that has lead to this illuminating work."

Dr. Geddes MacGregor, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
University of Southern California

"The Gita can be seen as the main literary support for the great religious civilization of India, the oldest surviving culture in the world. The present translation and commentary is another manifestation of the permanent living importance of the Gita."

Thomas Merton,

"I am most impressed with A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's scholarly and authoritative edition of Bhagavad Gita. It is a most valuable work for the scholar as well as the layman and is of great utility as a reference book as well as a textbook. I promptly recommend this edition to my students. It is a beautifully done book."

Dr. Samuel D. Atkins
Professor of Sanskrit, Princeton University

"...As a successor in direct line from Caitanya, the author of Bhagavad Gita As It Is is entitled, according to Indian custom, to the majestic title of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The great interest that his reading of the Bhagavad Gita holds for us is that it offers us an authorized interpretation according to the principles of the Caitanya tradition."

Olivier Lacombe
Professor of Sanskrit and Indology, Sorbonne University, Paris

"I have had the opportunity of examining several volumes published by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust and have found them to be of excellent quality and of great value for use in college classes on Indian religions. This is particularly true of the BBT edition and translation of the Bhagavad Gita."

Dr. Frederick B. Underwood
Professor of Religion, Columbia University

"...If truth is what works, as Pierce and the pragmatists insist, there must be a kind of truth in the Bhagavad Gita As It Is, since those who follow its teachings display a joyous serenity usually missing in the bleak and strident lives of contemporary people."

Dr. Elwin H. Powell
Professor of Sociology
State University of New York, Buffalo

"There is little question that this edition is one of the best books available on the Gita and devotion. Prabhupada's translation is an ideal blend of literal accuracy and religious insight."

Dr. Thomas J. Hopkins
Professor of Religion, Franklin and Marshall College

"The Bhagavad Gita, one of the great spiritual texts, is not as yet a common part of our cultural milieu. This is probably less because it is alien per se than because we have lacked just the kind of close interpretative commentary upon it that Swami Bhaktivedanta has here provided, a commentary written from not only a scholar's but a practitioner's, a dedicated lifelong devotee's point of view."

Denise Levertov,

"The increasing numbers of Western readers interested in classical Vedic thought have been done a service by Swami Bhaktivedanta. By bringing us a new and living interpretation of a text already known to many, he has increased our understanding manyfold."

Dr. Edward C Dimock, Jr.
Department of South Asian Languages and Civilization
University of Chicago

"The scholarly world is again indebted to A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Although Bhagavad Gita has been translated many times, Prabhupada adds a translation of singular importance with his commentary...."

Dr. J. Stillson Judah,
Professor of the History of Religions and Director of Libraries
Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California

"Srila Prabhupada's edition thus fills a sensitive gap in France, where many hope to become familiar with traditional Indian thought, beyond the commercial East-West hodgepodge that has arisen since the time Europeans first penetrated India.
"Whether the reader be an adept of Indian spiritualism or not, a reading of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is will be extremely profitable. For many this will be the first contact with the true India, the ancient India, the eternal India."

Francois Chenique, Professor of Religious Sciences
Institute of Political Studies, Paris, France

"As a native of India now living in the West, it has given me much grief to see so many of my fellow countrymen coming to the West in the role of gurus and spiritual leaders. For this reason, I am very excited to see the publication of Bhagavad Gita As It Is by Sri A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. It will help to stop the terrible cheating of false and unauthorized 'gurus' and 'yogis' and will give an opportunity to all people to understand the actual meaning of Oriental culture."

Dr. Kailash Vajpeye, Director of Indian Studies
Center for Oriental Studies, The University of Mexico

"...It is a deeply felt, powerfully conceived and beautifully explained work. I don't know whether to praise more this translation of the Bhagavad Gita, its daring method of explanation, or the endless fertility of its ideas. I have never seen any other work on the Gita with such an important voice and style....It will occupy a significant place in the intellectual and ethical life of modern man for a long time to come."

Dr. Shaligram Shukla
Professor of Linguistics, Georgetown University

"I can say that in the Bhagavad Gita As It Is I have found explanations and answers to questions I had always posed regarding the interpretations of this sacred work, whose spiritual discipline I greatly admire. If the aesceticism and ideal of the apostles which form the message of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is were more widespread and more respected, the world in which we live would be transformed into a better, more fraternal place."

Dr. Paul Lesourd, Author
Professeur Honoraire, Catholic University of Paris

The greatest version of the greatest commentary on the greatest book ever revealed! Binding, cover, printing and pages are all fantastic and the books are going for such an affordable price! The ribbon bookmark is also a lovely touch!

Thank you for the Bhagavad gita. Very attractive cover and devotees said it is like Srila Prabhupada's original Bhagavad-gita. Makes book distribution easier.
Mirko Huusom - 11/21/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
I am truly greatful for having obtained this original work. Glad it is still in print. Thank you for excellent delivery.
Vince Francia - 11/10/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
Great great timeless wisdom. Love it and I bought two copies right away. Technical: I wish the paper of the pages were a little less transparent so the text from the opposite page wouldn't show through thi much. And unfortunately the amount of ink of the printed text is varied from page to page leaving some page's text dark and some text light gray.
Richard Smith - 05/12/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
Fantastic! I love the size and portability of this volume! Thank you for keeping alive Srila Prabhupada's genuine, original, unadulterated presentation of Srimad Bhagavad Gita As It Is

This is the site I go to for my transcendental literature. Thank you for the customer support I have received every time I have purchased from your site :))
Garry Russell-Smith - 11/21/2014 5 of 5 Stars!
Dear Devotees, Along with other items I have purchased this Bhagavad-Gita, which is a Christmas gift to me from my little daughters. It has arrived, both quickly and in perfect condition; and even though I am not a Krishna Devotee, I am noticing it difficult for me to wait till Christmas to read it. I do not know all that much about Mr. Srila Prabhupada, but I do know that he is the reason I and my entire family are vegetarians. I am factually so grateful for this man, for his saintliness, and for all you guys at KrishnaStore for making these original writings available, which is a magnificent way to honour his life and his life purpose. My sense is that anyone on a spiritual path would benefit immensely by owning a copy of this book. Blessing and many thanks - Garry.
