5.0 von 5 Sternen Core of Hinduism in pure form., 20. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
"All religious texts are subject to interpertation". That's a popular belief most people like to cling to. The way "The Bhagavad Gita" has been translated in this book, it is absolutely clear. This book delivers the message of this religious text in most lucid form.
A must reading for those people of the West, who want a quick and correct glimse of Hinduism.
And also for those Hindus, who are taking their first steps in the quest for thier spiritual indentity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful Interpretation, 5. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Song of God Bhagavad Gita (Taschenbuch)
This is not a translation of the Gita as much as an intepretation. Scholars will find much to irritate them here as direct translation was not Isherwood's aim, but rather an interpretation of the text in such a way that was best suited to Isherwood's own aim's of self-enlightenment. This volume is easy to read, and many sections have been put into a semi-poetical form to recall the feel of the original (a big plus, as few modern translations have attempted to do the same). Also, quite interesting is the introduction by Aldous Huxley, in which he relates his "Perennial Philosophy" to the Gita and speaks in detail about Hinduism as well as it's relation to other faiths. An appendix on various Hindoo ideas is included that makes some potentially foreign concepts a little bit easier to assimilate. For anyone who loves the Gita as I do, this book is a treasure trove.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most lyrical translation into English of this classic, 21. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Song of God Bhagavad Gita (Taschenbuch)
Isherwood took his love of the message of the Gita, and the knowledge he gained from his Teacher to bring the wonderful meaning of the Bhagavad Gita into beautiful English.
This work of faith and philosophy gains so much from the beautiful use of words! Other translations may be more accurate of more satisfying to scholars, but this is the one for the reader who wants to understand this message.
