The Timeless Message

conch2.jpg (22570 bytes)

Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India's spiritual wisdom. Spoken by Lord Sri Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, to His intimate devotee Arjuna, the Gita's 700 concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self-realization. Indeed, there is no other work even comparable in its revelations of man's essential nature, his environment and ultimately, his relationship with God.

 

 


 

"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 seems puny and trivial."

- Henry David Thoreau

 

"I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad-gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

"When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day."

- Mohandas K. Gandhi

 

 


 

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

is the world's foremost Vedic scholar and teacher, and he is also the current representative of an unbroken chain of fully self-realized spiritual masters beginning with Lord Krsna Himself.  Thus unlike other editions, this Gita is presented As It Is - without the slightest taint of adulteration or personal motivation.
