in their magazne, yr jan 2000 - Hinduism TOday
“… Prasad’s deft renderings are elegantly simple, easy to understand and unencumbered by long commentary. An ambitious work that will be appreciated by all who study the Gita ... ”

---- Hinduism Today, USA
on the web - Phil Buzzard
“…I personally find many translations tedious because of complex structure. This translation is simply beautiful because it is beautifully simple…”
--- Rev. Phil Buzzard, New York
on the net, sent by email - prof. Anthony Beavers
“ .... I would like to include the translation of the Gita by Dr. Ramananda Prasad in my site. I am interested in representing India fairly, and I fear that the translation of the Gita by Sir Edwin Arnold that is distributed all over the net will do more to turn students away rather than introduce them fairly to the text….”
sent by mail - prof. shrinivas Tilak
“… Explanations of the theory and philosophy of selfless service has been so beautifully expounded ….”
--- Prof. S. Tilak, Concordia University, Canada.
