    Rarely in a lifetime does a new spiritual classic appear that has the power to change people's lives and transform future generations. This is such a book. The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita: Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda shares the profound insights of Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi, as remembered by one of his few remaining direct disciples, Swami Kriyananda.

    Donald says: "Excelent Read, Very Informative"

    Overall

    A very detailed look at the Gita. It was interesting, but I found a lot of it too sure and narrow minded to get into.

  • Gilgamesh: A New English Version

    This brilliant new treatment of the world's oldest epic is a literary event on par with Seamus Heaney's wildly popular Beowulf translation. Esteemed translator and best-selling author Stephen Mitchell energizes a heroic tale so old it predates Homer's Iliad by more than a millennium.

    George says: "A defense of this "translation""
    "Great"
    Overall

    To take something as old as the Gilgamesh story and give it such a smooth modern translation is impressive. I wish I had given this a listen sooner.

    Max McLean brings his compelling voice and artistic narrative skills to the ESV Bible. This Gold Medallion-winning new translation combines a word-for-word translation approach with a literary beauty that is perfect for the oral expression of God's Word.

    James says: "Excellent Audiobook, no chapter breaks"
    "OK"
    Overall

    Probably the best option on Audible at the moment. The translation isn't what I'd hoped for. Mostly I have to give this 3 stars because of the formatting. It's split into 37 different files. This makes it a bit of a pain to organize. The book of Psalms was messed up and there are no chapters for it. For the largest book in the bible that makes going through it hard. Psalms also would lock up my mp3 player at times.

  • Sayings of the Buddha: The Dhammapada

    Some sources say that the Buddha was born on or around April 8, 563 B.C. How many years have you been around without discovering his wisdom? According to tradition, the words of The Dhammapada come directly from the mouth of Buddha. This translation in particular is among the most poetic and spiritually insightful.

    I think the reader sounds fine and the material comes across very clearly.
