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.
