The Bhagavad Gita is one of the world’s greatest scriptures, the key sacred text of Hinduism. It means the ‘Song of God’ and is often called the ‘Song Celestial’. Alan Jacobs has succeeded in revitalizing the ancient text into a form which reveals the full majesty of the magnificent scriptures as well as its practical message for today’s seekers. The outdated English of Sir Edwin Arnold’s fine poetic translation in 1885 has been trasnsformed and given clear meaning. It has also been expanded to reinforce the poetic imagery using cotemporary free verse based on innovative metaphors. “It is like a great symphony. each chapter relates to the last but leads on to the coda.”
