Description:

An insightful, easy-read, word-for-word, non-sectarian translation with detailed indexes.

Back Cover:

There are hundreds of translations of Bhagavad-Gītā. These fall into two general groupings, as those with missionary intentions and  those of non-religious interest. This translation is not for promoting missionary work but it is not strictly speaking, devoid of religious interest. In so far as the Bhagavad-Gītā itself considers religion, this translation does the same.

This edition only shows what Śrī Krishna said and offers that in free style, leaving the reader to form independent conclusions. This is suited to those who want to view the Gitā without having missionaries, philosophers and historians exerting their influence

Author's Comment:

This volume has the Sanskrit (Devanagari) text, with word-for-word meanings in English. This has no commentary. This book is for you if you desire to peruse the Sanskrit carefully.

To sort between what Krishna said and what other religious authorities claim that He said, one has to check the Sanskrit. To see why the claims imposed by religious leaders on the Gita usually fail to manifest, one has to double check the Sanskrit text. If you are really serious about the Gita, take time to check the Sanskrit carefully. Sanskrit, unlike modern languages like English, has a set number of root words. This language is for all practical purposes static because it is no longer in general usage on this planet. That makes it an easy language to grasp, if one is patient enough to study it.

 Reviews:

 A Commentary That Leaves No Stone Uncovered by Jason Smith: 

After reading this commentary, my life outlook vastly matured and quality of my actions increased. The Bhagavad Gita is one of those profound philosophical discourses that stands the infallible test of time. I actually ordered the author's original translation (Bhagavad Gita English), and then soon after I ordered this book to better understand the concepts.
