The reason why I purchased this translation is because it was recommended by Douglas Brooks in his book "Poised for Grace", which is a book of Annotations on the Bhagavad Gita from a Tantric view. I enjoyed how the left page is in Sanskrit; but, the right page is in English. Even though most of us can't read the Sanskrit, I still found it fascinating to see the ancient text. It took me a minute to figure out the numbering system, too, since this version is not broken down into chapters. This was different for me at first because one of the reasons why I purchased this book was for a Study Group/Yoga Book Club. When comparing with the others, their translations were broken down into chapters, yet this one is broken down by verses/paragraph form. However, this does add more of a poetic element to the story.
