Overview

For years, this edition of the Bhagavad Gita has allowed all those with a lively interest in this spiritual classic to come into direct contact with the richness and resonance of the original text. Winthrop Sargeant’s interlinear edition provides a word-for-word English translation along with the devanaµgariµ characters and the transliterated Sanskrit.

Discussions of the language and setting of the Giµtaµ are provided and, in this new edition, editor Christopher Key Chapple offers guidance on how to get the most out of this interlinear edition.
