In anticipation of H.D. Goswami’s forthcoming publication, A Comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad-Gita, we offer you an exclusive sneak preview inside the text.
Due to hit shelves this spring, A Comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad-gita is a companion and study guide to Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada’s groundbreaking Bhagavad Gita As It Is, the largest-selling edition of the Bhagavad-gita in the Western world. Prabhupada personally instructed H.D. Goswami, his disciple, to present these teachings “in your own words” to learned Western audiences.
For over 45 years, H.D. Goswami has shared the wisdom of the Bhagavad-gita at prestigious universities and with spiritual communities around the world. Thus, this publication is the fruit and culmination of a long, distinguished career of studying, teaching, and living the text.
A Comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad-gita is unique in that it elucidates key Sanskrit terms in the original text, using the literal meaning of the Sanskrit words, thus allowing the text to define its own terms and make its own arguments. Special attention is given to categories such as knowledge, meditation, karma, devotion, sacrifice, renunciation, equality, and liberation. A Comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad-gita also includes a precise, literal translation of the ancient text.
As a trained Harvard scholar, H.D. Goswami combines rigorous study with simple language to give his readers easy access to the Bhagavad-gita’s complex and sophisticated treatise. H.D. Goswami’s stated goal is to provide deep penetration into the original text for those not fluent in Sanskrit.
