Synopses & Reviews
The eighteen chapters of The Bhagavad Gita
(c. 500 b.c.), the glory of Sanskrit literature, encompass the whole spiritual struggle of a human soul. Its three central themes-love, light, and life-arise from the symphonic vision of God in all things and of all things in God.
Translated by Juan Mascar
Introduction by Simon Brodbeck
