Translated by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, introduction by Aldous Huxley.
From the back cover: The Bhagavad-Gita is the Gospel of Hinduism, and one of the great religious classics of the world. Here is a distinguished translation which can be read by every man and woman, not as an archaic monument to an ancient culture, but as a living contemporary message which touches the most urget personal and social problems of today.
Interesting an accessible for the first-time reader - especially for the introduction by Aldous Huxley in which he explains his perennial philosophy, centered on the four tenets he asserts are central to all religions (All is God; We can feel God; We can know God; and God is the answer.)
The Gita consists of a dialogue between the warrior Arjuna and Krishna, focusing on Arjuna's reluctance to engage in a great battle between good and evil. Smooth translation, helped along I suspect by the collaboration of a Hindu and a westerner...
