5.0 out of 5 stars Amongst the best editions for students May 1 2010
By CHS - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This edition of the Gita is probably the best for students - it has the Sanskrit text in Devanagari and the Roman script, the literal word to word translation, and then the rephrased translation. It explains each and every word, and with a verse per page it's pleasant to the eyes and has ample space for annotations. If you're looking for an interpretation of or commentary on the Gita, this isn't the right edition - buy one written by a Swami.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four and a half stars Jan. 31 2014
By Floral Symphony - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm studying sanskrit and have been working through a number of translations. Just imagine if there were so many erratic translations of the bible in circulation! Most translations of the Bhagavad Gita are written by people who are not totally erudite in both English and Sanskrit, and so it is common to find either mistakes in the understanding of the sanskrit, or to endure stilted English. In addition many translations have the belief system of the translator shamelessly inserted.
This is the best translation I have found so far in terms of word by word translation, and for learning sanskrit.
This is the most accurate, least biased translation that I have read. A lot of work has gone into parsing (identifying the grammar) of each sanskrit word. It retains some of the prosody and poetry of the original, unlike almost all other translations. Neither is it much encumbered by commentary. Each page has lots of space where you can add your own notes.
The font size is too small. The devanagari script requires the vision of a hawk in bright sunlight.
The layout could have been improved. The layout is excellent for word by word examination, but not perfect for an easy read through in either Sanskrit or English. The translation is a precise rendition of the original, rather than being a loose translation in easy flowing English.

Just the perfect edition of the Bhagavad Gita to start with. It's written well and well translated. I can read Sanskrit and honestly, it does a great job! Highly recommended for all levels of expertise with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sanskrit, phonology, grammar, word by word translation, and English rendering. May 18 2013
By avihs - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A Bhagavad Gita which gives the Sanskrit, phonology, grammar, word by word translaion, and an English rendering. It is a great way to become familiar with the Bhagavad Gita in its original language. If one is studying Sanskrit then this is also a viable tool to have for it gives one a deeper understanding of Sanskrit.
It is beautifully organized. The grammar is on the right hand side if one chooses to dwell into this dimension, and for the quick reader the English rendering is at the bottom of the page.
All in all a great version.
