"It is high time we paid attention to Gitas other than the Bhagavad Gita. Steven Rosen begins the process with this attractive English translation of the Uddhava Gita from the Bhagavata Purana, a profound work where Krishna sings his theology to the devotee Uddhava just before leaving the earth. In many ways Krishna's teachings here build upon and go beyond those of the Bhagavad Gita, for his auditor Uddhava is more advanced in his understanding and spiritual capacity than was Arjuna. Rosen here provides an accessible rendering of the Sanskrit original along with his own commentary, drawing upon the teachings of the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition. Students of Indian religious literature, devotees of Krishna, and Hindus of every persuasion will find valuable insight in this important work."
