I must confess I've not read all of the book as it runs to over pages, but I have read the sections of the Geeta that most gripped me when I first read it and Chinmaya's analysis of those sections is fantastic, as well as being very thought provoking, particularly when Chinmaya speaks of Arjuna's situation in psychological terms.
As a psychotherapist this appeals to me. However this does not take anything away from the fact that the Geeta is a powerful spiritual texts, which leads to Krishna. If I have any criticism with this edition it would be with the printing and not the text.
Because the book is so long the paper is thin and there is some bleed though of the ink, nevertheless it is a remarkable edition and well worth is low price tag View 2 comments.

Apr 23, Chase Womble rated it it was amazing. This is the second version of the Gita that i'm reading. I read the eknath easwaran version just a couple weeks ago. This version really goes into super detail about each verse. I enjoy the scientific approach that Saraswati gives. I find myself being able to relate his meanings of situations to various life situations i have gone through.
It really encompasses a whole view of the world and it ties in so well with itself. The book is very long and i love it, but sometimes you have to refresh you This is the second version of the Gita that i'm reading. The book is very long and i love it, but sometimes you have to refresh your mind as to where you left off because reading the book for too long can be overwhelming. Let it sink in and then go back when you mind is ripe for more revelations. I have always wanted to understand more about Hinduism, the religion of where I come from.
The Baghavad Geeta is one of the core many scriptures of Hinduism, and in this book the author explains it verse by verse. When I chanced upon this book, I was excited to read it, to see if it could shed a new light on life and Hinduism as a whole. I was throughly impressed with the authors clear concise explanations of each verse, and how it related to modern day life. I learned a lot, and I hope to inclu I have always wanted to understand more about Hinduism, the religion of where I come from.
I learned a lot, and I hope to include some of what I learned into my daily life. Dec 24, Y. There are no words that can describe the power of the Geeta but something can be said of swamiji's writing: it's fluid, clear, intellectually developed but also 'grounded'.
