Reviews

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 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
