This book is the compilation of classes on the Bhagavad Gita given by Swami Tyagishananda, an erudite scholar monk of the Ramakrishna Order, during the years 1945-50. The verses are given in Devanagari script followed by English translation and insightful comments. The author quotes (in Sanskrit) extensively from the philosophical schools and commentaries of Shankaracharya, Ramanuja, Madhva, Vallabha, the Vedas, Upanishad, Puranas, as well as from works of western philosophers and scriptures of various other religions. But throughout the text, he interprets his views in accord with the teachings of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda.

A BIT OF A WARNING: Not all the Sanskrit is translated. The verses from the Gita are translated into English, but many terms and/or chapter headings are not. This is a beautiful book, but we feel it will be better suited for the more serious student/devotee than for the casual reader.

Swami Tyagishananda, a disciple of Swami Brahmananda, was the President of Sri Ramakrishna Math, Bangalore, from 1938-1951.
