I have half a dozen translations of the Bhagavad Gita, but this is the finest, in my opinion. The language is at once clear and lyrical. What I especially appreciate is that Mascaro did not try to "dumb down" such terms as atman and karma by rendering them in English "equivalents" ("over-soul" or "wheel of life") that are not equivalent at all. The organization of the work is also beneficial since I have frequent occasion to quote from the scripture. In short, Mascaro treats the Gita as a work of scripture and spiritual education rather than an abstract piece of poetry that Western minds are not expected to understand. I only wish it were available in Nook format. I've worn out two paperbacks already.

My guess is that this is like the Christian Bible. People have it in on their shelves, but they don't read it. This can turn your head in several directions. Like any good religious text, it is not simple, and you can read it over and over again, and still find something new.
