Product Description


Translation and commentary by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.


The Bhagavad-gita is highly recommended for anyone interested in spirituality and the meaning of life. One of the world's best known literatures, it is often considered the essence of all wisdom. It's a conversation between the military hero Arjuna and his friend/advisor/charioteer Krishna, spoken just before the apocalyptic Battle of Kurukshetra. Subjects they discuss include the eternality of the self, destiny, the source of our being, and how to achieve genuine, long-term peace and happiness.

The translation and commentary by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the twentieth century's foremost Vedic scholar and teacher of Krishna consciousness, make Krishna's teachings in the Gita accessible to the western reader. Prabhupada's faithfulness to the original Sanskrit text, along with his straightforwardness, clarity and wit, make "Bhagavad-gita As It Is" true to its title.

Since its publication in 1970, Bhagavad-gita As It Is has become the most widely read edition of the Gita in the world.

  1. Real

    Posted by Hooman on 24th Mar 2015

    It simply speaks of whats real in life! The soul, senses, mind, intelligence. There is nothing more important in this world than to understand how these work and are controlled to better the individual in all aspects of life. Of course its most important message is the love of God and our ability to connect to Krsna while on this earth and how to end the very real cycle of birth and death!
