Book Description

Publisher's Note

As a book of scripture, the Bhagavadgita has assumed a position of universal interest. Its teachings have gained appreciation not only in India, but far beyond its borders. I Our Gita-Library alone has about 1400 editions of the Bhagavadgita published in 34 different languages including 8 foreign languages.

We are bringing out this edition of the Gita in pocket-size with simple English translation and Roman transliteration of each verse and in a popular form. We trust it will find favour with the English-reading public. We have also published two editions of this book in bolder types in book size for convenience of readers.

The English translation of this edition has been based on the Hindi rendering of the Gita made by Syt. Jayadayal Goyandka and appearing in the Gita- Tattva Number of the Hindi monthly 'Kalyan', published by us. In preparing the present English translation, the translators have made use, every now and then, of other English translations of the Gita, and we express our grateful acknowledgement for the same. In order to add to the utility of this small volume an introduction by Syt. Jayadayal Goyandka and a synopsis of the Gita have been prefixed to the translation.

Several Editions of Gita in Sanskrit, Hindi and other Indian regional languages have been published by us. In English too, several other editions including some with detailed commentary have also been published for in depth study.
