Bhagavad-gita to be Published by Karttika

Aug 6 2011 - News

We are happy to announce that by the grace of Sri Sri Guru and Gauranga, Srila Narasingha Maharaja has now completed his English translation and commentary on Bhagavad-gita and we will soon be ready to go to the printers.

Bhagavad-gita is indeed a scholarly work, but one need not be a scholar to understand the Gita’s straightforward and simple message. Indeed, Arjuna, the first student of Bhagavad-gita, was not a scholar, but a warrior. However, in the past many great scholars, gurus and self-realized masters have written illuminating commentaries to accompany the Gita – it’s ‘as it is’ meaning, its poetry, philosophy and its hidden treasure – so that the people of their time, as well as the people of future generations, may have a better appreciation of the message of Sri Krsna.

We have now completed the first decade of the 21st century and a host of such erudite commentaries on Bhagavad-gita sit upon our bookshelves and in our libraries – surely there is no call for yet another!

The message of Bhagavad-gita is eternal and unchanging, but the time that surrounds us is always changing, thus our perception of life, our current situation and our necessity is also always changing. To meet the changing times and the present necessity, yet another commentary is being presented – a brief commentary called the Anuvrtti.

Bhagavad-gita — Sri Krsna’s illuminations on the Perfection of Yoga is due to be released during Karttika this year.
