Bhagavad Gita: The Beloved Lord's Secret Love Song is often regarded as the Bible of India. With a gripping story and deeply compelling message, it is unquestionably one of the most popular sacred texts of Asia and, along with the Bible and the Qur'an, one of the most important holy scriptures in the world. Graham Schweig’s translation of the famous conversation between the Hindu god Krishna and the young prince Arjuna is perfectly suited for academic study; the glossary, pronunciation guide, and expert commentary provide greater ease of understanding.
Not only is the Bhagavad Gita one of the most important works in the history of world literature, but it is read in thousands of yoga studios across the country and Business Week recently reported that “it has replaced The Art of War as the hip new ancient Eastern management text.”
Praise for Bhagavad Gita:
“Schweig’s new, beautiful, and accessible translation of the Gita, backed by his enormous knowledge and authoritative commentary, will remain the standard text of this marvelous Song for years to come, if indeed it is ever superseded.”—Huston Smith, author of The World’s Religions
“The Bhagavad Gita is a religious classic; Graham Schweig’s felicitous translation of it deserves to be called a classic in its own right.”—Arvind Sharma, Birks Professor of Comparative Religion at McGill University, author of Our Religions
