The largest-selling edition of the Gita in the Western world, Bhagavad-gita As It Is is more than a book. It is alive with knowledge and devotion; thus it has the power to change your life for the better. 

Bhagavad-gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth to the other: These five truths are Krishna, or God, the individual soul, the material world, action in this world, and time. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. It is the essence of India's spiritual wisdom, the answers to questions posed by philosophers for centuries. 

In translating the Gita, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has remained loyal to the intended meaning of Krishna's words, and thus he has unlocked all the secrets of the ancient knowledge of the Gita and placed them before us as an exciting opportunity for self-improvement and spiritual fulfillment.

The Gita is a conversation between Krishna and His dear friend Arjuna. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to wonder: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of his life? Where is he going after death?

In response, Krishna brings His friend from perplexity to spiritual enlightenment, and each one of us is invited to walk the same path.


Presents the translation of the Gita, as it was spoken by Krsna, the Lord Himself on the battlefield 500 thousands years ago.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect Knowledge Beyond Human Imperfection 13. März 2004
Von Vijaya
This edtion of Bhagvad-gita has changed my life for the best in a dramatic way. It is a real eye opener. It has definitely answered all my questions lingering on my mind since childhood.
For example, one of my most pressing questions was: "Is nonviolence an absolute value, an absolute quality? Are there situations, where the use of violence is justified or even ethically required?"
I have tried to find answers to this and other questions as a university student of philosophy. But only since I have read this book all these questions have found their definite answers.
We all have the inherent feeling that there is something like right and wrong. I think that everbody would it consider wrong to murder innocent children or rape helpless women. Usually we try to distinguish between right or wrong on the superficial platform of fleeting material phenomena. This creates a lot of problems. On the external level what may be right today, what may be right for one person, may be totally wrong tommorow, in another situation or for any other person. All this distinctions are based on our ever changing personal tastes and on the often hollow zeitgeist.
Reading this book has opened my eyes in an instant. I felt like a blind man, who has regained his eyesight after decades of blindness. This brilliant book states that it is the INTENTION, the MOTIVATION, that really counts. It is not the external appearance. It is the personal essence.
Cutting and piercing the body with a sharp instrument obviously seems to be a violent act. Imagine, if some crook attacks you with a knife. Of course that is criminal, against human law. But what, if a surgeon uses a knife to cut your belly to remove a tumor, which puts your life at risk? Indeed, he is cutting, he is hurting, but is he a criminal?

1.0 von 5 Sternen Did not like it 10. April 2003
Von Ein Kunde
This book has one of the best layouts I have encountered. It has original Sanskrit text in Devanagari, Roman transcription with diacritic marks, word-for-word translation, verse translation, and purport. It has also beautiful pictures and I like the practice of using diacritic marks every time a Sanskrit name or a term is cited. Unfortunately these are the only good things that I can tell about it.
First of all, this is not a book about Bhagavad Gita; this is a book against all those ignorant mayavadis (followers of Shankaracharya) and all the others who think differently than the author. You cannot read a few pages without finding his attacks on others views, which is the primary reason I do not like this book.
Then, it is highly unreliable, as you could expect from sectarian literature. I wouldn't mind it so much if the author had restrained his comments only to purports. But you cannot ignore purport and read only translation because it is also biased. Even word-for-word translation is unreliable and biased.
Ignoring purports, verse translation, and word-for-word translation, there remain only Sanskrit text, Roman transcription and pictures which are not enough to justify buying this book.
Instead, if you are interested in Sanskrit, as I am, try The Bhagavad Gita by Winthrop Sargeant to hear what Krishna really said. If you are not interested in Sanskrit, there are many, many other translations better than this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Briilaint illumination of the text 11. Juni 2000
This book is a brilliant tour de force of spiritual realisation. Brightly illuminating the deepest meanings of the text, and making it very clear what Krishna was saying when he first spoke the Gita to Arjuna, Prabhupada takes us by the hand and leads us to realms of unlimited bliss. The evidence speaks for itself. Prabhupada himself said that before he presented this translation and commentary there were over fifty English versions of the Gita available in the West, and not a single person had become God conscious as a result of reading them - the essential aim of the Gita. However, when his book appeared it started a worldwide movement of people who dedicated their lives to God. The movement is still growing as thousands of people discover these wonderful teachinsg each year, transforming their lives into a dynamic spiritual quest for the absolute. Every day I study this book and am amazed by the ever deeper levels of transcendental knowledge it contains. It is my manual for sanity and happiness. Whenever things are difficult, a dip into the pages of Prabhupada's Gita will throw everything into its proper perspective. If I were to be cast away on some desert island with just one book, this would be the one. It is a veritable treasure chest of knowledge, or, as the Vedas themselves say, a desire tree that can fulfil your every wish. Buy it today.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A useful translation for the Sanskrit Scholar 17. Februar 2000
This review refers to ISBN 0-89213-123-3 "Complete Edition". The reason I like this translation is given on the title page: "...with the original Sanskrit text, Roman transliteration, English equivalents, translation and elaborate purports." It is the only translation that has all these "features" that I know of. In essence you are getting four different "texts". This is invaluable for the Sanskrit student. The translation is even fairly good. As for the purports, well, you can take them or leave them, that is up to you, though I do find some of the ideas quite intriguing. In addition to this, there is an general index and a glossary. These are okay. I like the neat "Index of Sanskrit Verses" (Romanized), which is quite helpful. Again, this is the only translation that I know of that has this type of Index. I would like to note here that I currently have eleven different translations of Bhagavad Gita. I find this one especially useful for its apparatus, and have used it for reference purposes on numerous occasions.
