The Bhagavad Gita | [Phoenix Books, Barbara Stoler-Miller (translator)]

The Bhagavad Gita

The search for higher truth must be conducted in the midst of the forces of life, with all its demands and seductions. So teaches The Bhagavad Gita, an ancient text that has been called the quintessence of the spirituality of India. In it, the great warrior Arjuna contemplates the meaning of life, just moments before entering the battlefield. "Why do I exist? Why should I fight against my loved ones? And where shall I go after I die?" he asks himself in search for knowledge of the Absolute.

What the Critics Say

"Hearing The Bhagavad Gita, rather than reading it, helps one understand why many cultures to this very day refuse to commit their sacred texts to writing, believing that script would profane them." (Huston Smith, author of The Religions of Man)

    "Good translation, lifeless reading"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This translation of the Gita by Barbara Stoller-Miller is one of the three best modern scholarly translations, the others being those of Graham Schweig and W.J. Johnson. Free of denominational bias, Victorianisms, etc. The reading by Jacob Needleman is lifeless and devoid of dramatic interpretation; he thinks if you read as if you are depressed you are showing reverence for a sacred text..
