One of the best comprehensive overviews of Buddhism that you will find. I highly recommend it.
Brief but excellent content. Presents the most important core ideas. With superb narration by Ms Rothwell.
It's good, but not great. The "translation" takes too many liberties... colloquializes too much.
Sri Krishna's self-revelation to Arjuna.
I liked that the speaker was clear. However, I did not like the speaker's repetitive overemphasis.It made the delivery seem cloying. A professional reader should have been used.At various points the reader made Sri Krishna sound almost condescending. That is not at all a part of Sri Krishna's attitude.
The Gita is very inspiring, elevating. It prompts the reader to self-examination and improvement.
All in all the "translation" and delivery mar the grandeur, intellectual depth and expansive spirit of the original work.Though I think the author/reader made a noble attempt, with good intention.
