Only wish for better audio quality

4 stars overall only because the audio quality was not very good. It was difficult to hear even at the loudest setting. It sounded muffled.

5 stars for the actual audiobook & narration. I will listen again. Thank you.

I am Review, shatterer of words

"I am death, shatterer of worlds,
annialating all things" (11.32).
- Bhagavad Gita, tr Stephen Mitchell

I’ll review later as it sinks deeper in.
I need some time to chew on it.
And, yes, perhaps just let go and
let the book be --
what it already is.

I'm in love with this marvelous work if art

I just finished the Bhagavad Gita and I am in love with our Great Creator, the Alpha and Omega. And I'm in love with whatever great soul first wrote this magnificent poem, Veda-Vyasa. And I'm so grateful that I listened to The Great Minds of Eastern Philosophy and was introduced to this marvelous work of art. Now I understand why so many great thinkers have been attracted to this text. I keep a hard copy on my nightstand and know I will be reading and re-reading it often as yet another directional guide on my path. ✨💓

Great translation

The Gita is one of those sacred books I have thought about reading many times but never gotten to it; until now. And it is as great as I hoped it was. Krishna's unshakable presence and wise words stayed with me long after finishing it. Thank you, Stephen Mitchell for a great translation of this gem.

Phenomenal!!!

The translation is phenomenal!!! I have listened to Chapters 14 to the end several times...what great wisdom communicated to use. Thank you, Stephen Mitchell, for having the intellect to promulgate this knowledge. You've done beautiful work!
