Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Song of Krishna: The Illustrated Bhagavad Gita is next in Abrams ongoing series of classic spiritual and philosophical texts.

As part of the Mahâbhârata, one of the two great Hindu epics, the Gita takes the form of a conversation between Krishna, the many-formed deity, advising Arjuna, his kinsman, as the pair go into battle against a rival clan. Krishnas moral counsel is often referred to as a concise version of Hindu philosophy, as well as a more generalized guide to leading a principled life.

Indian paintings, sculptures, and textiles from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art have been carefully paired with Edwin Arnold's classic English verse translation to create this handsome volume, with a three-piece case, staining, and a ribbon.

About the Author

Sir Edwin Arnold (1832–1904) was an English poet and journalist best known for his interpretations of Eastern philosophy through English verse, in particular the long-form poem The Light of Asia. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is home more than 100,000 objects dating from ancient times to the present, making it the largest art museum in the western United States.
