"Dr. Feuerstein's new rendering is perhaps the most complete version of the more than one hundred English translations of the "Gita" to come our way in the last two-and-a-quarter centuries. This is a work for both scholars and serious laypersons, destined, I believe, to become the standard text for Yoga training programs in the English-speaking world."--Richard Rosen, author of "The Yoga of Breath" and "Pranayama beyond the Fundamentals"
"A "Bhagavad-Gita" like no other! Never have its language and culture been so vividly etched, not only by the unrivaled precision of Feuerstein's renderings, but also in a trove of companion materials unprecedented for their breadth and depth. There's something here for everyone, from seeker to scholar to seer."--Chip Hartranft, translator of "The Yoga-Sutra of Patanjali" "Its timeless teachings on karma yoga and bhakti yoga make it a foundational text for modern yogis. Its compelling narrative, filled with iconic characters and colorful lessons about the spiritual journey, make it a pleasure to read. What makes the Feuersteins' translation unique? It is packed with scholarly essays that help students understand the Gita's historical and cultural context and its historical worldview before they read the text. Rich with footnotes and containing a helpful glossary, this book will serve serious yoga students and ambitious beginners alike."--"Yoga Journal"
"It stands out both for its faithfulness to the original language and for its extensive tools for understanding the text."--"OM Magazine "(UK)show more
