This is a masterful translation of the “Bhagavad Gita”, along with the Sanskrit original. A faithful rendition of the 2-year-old ‘Song Celestial’, Bibek Debroy’s translation resonates with the spirit of the original, while using modern idiom and language. He captures, verse by verse, the essence of this ancient philosophical poem, which debates eternal questions of right and wrong, action and consequence, and the conflicting nature of duty and love. The text stands by itself, complete and without interpolation, juxtaposed with the Sanskrit for easy reference; interpretation and explanation are tucked away as notes at the end.
