Año de Edición

  • The Bhagavad Gita is the most widely read Hindu religious text in the Western world and a key work for understanding Indian religions and the way Hinduism has been represented in modern India and the West.
  • W. J. Johnson's translation is up-to-date, clear and accurate. Described by the Daily Telegraph as 'an excellent primer in the Hindu belief system' and by the Good Book Guide as 'freshly accessible to a Western readership...The presentation is both scholarly and inviting.'
  • In addition to the usual OWC features of introduction and notes, this edition includes notes on metre, on the pronunciation of Sanskrit names, and a list of Sanskrit names and terms.

'I have heard the supreme mystery, yoga, from Krishna, from the lord of yoga himself.'

Thus ends the Bhagavad Gita, the most famous episode from the great Sanskrit epic, the Mahabharata. In its eighteen short chapters Krishna's teaching leads the warrior Arjuna from perplexity to understanding and correct action, in the process raising and developing many key themes from the history of Indian religions.

The Bhagavad Gita is the best known and most widely read Hindu religious text in the Western world. It considers social and religious duty, the nature of sacrifice, the nature of action, the means to liberation, and the relationship of human beings to God. It culminates in an awe-inspiring vision of Krishna as God omnipotent, disposer and destroyer of the universe.
