This translation stands out from the many others: first of all in its careful faithfulness to the original language, but also for the extensive tools for understanding it provides. It is accompanied by detailed explanatory notes, as well as by the entire Sanskrit text on facing pages--both in the original Devanagari alphabet and in a Romanized version that allows the reader to approximate the sounds of this work (a pronunciation guide is also provided). Included is a literal, word-for-word translation for comparison; extensive material on the background, symbolism, and influence of the Gītā; and an exhaustive glossary of terms.

Perhaps the most complete version of the more than one hundred English translations of the Gita to come our way…Destined to become the standard text for Yoga training programs in the English-speaking world.
