Original 1972 Complete edition. With translations and elaborate purports by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.

Soft-cover, 1000+ pages, 48 color plates. 5" x 7.5"


"No work in all Indian literature is more quoted, because none is better loved, in the West, than the Bhagavad Gita. Translation of such a work demands not only knowledge of Sanskrit, but an inward sympathy with the theme and a verbal artistry. For the poem is a symphony in which God is seen in all things....The Swami does a real service for students by investing the beloved Indian epic with fresh meaning. Whatever our outlook may be, we should all be grateful for the labor that has lead to this illuminating work."

Dr. Geddes MacGregor, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
University of Southern California

"The Gita can be seen as the main literary support for the great religious civilization of India, the oldest surviving culture in the world. The present translation and commentary is another manifestation of the permanent living importance of the Gita."

Thomas Merton,

"I am most impressed with A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's scholarly and authoritative edition of Bhagavad Gita. It is a most valuable work for the scholar as well as the layman and is of great utility as a reference book as well as a textbook. I promptly recommend this edition to my students. It is a beautifully done book."

Dr. Samuel D. Atkins
Professor of Sanskrit, Princeton University

"...As a successor in direct line from Caitanya, the author of Bhagavad Gita As It Is is entitled, according to Indian custom, to the majestic title of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. The great interest that his reading of the Bhagavad Gita holds for us is that it offers us an authorized interpretation according to the principles of the Caitanya tradition."

Olivier Lacombe
Professor of Sanskrit and Indology, Sorbonne University, Paris

"I have had the opportunity of examining several volumes published by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust and have found them to be of excellent quality and of great value for use in college classes on Indian religions. This is particularly true of the BBT edition and translation of the Bhagavad Gita."

Dr. Frederick B. Underwood
Professor of Religion, Columbia University

"...If truth is what works, as Pierce and the pragmatists insist, there must be a kind of truth in the Bhagavad Gita As It Is, since those who follow its teachings display a joyous serenity usually missing in the bleak and strident lives of contemporary people."

Dr. Elwin H. Powell
Professor of Sociology
State University of New York, Buffalo

"There is little question that this edition is one of the best books available on the Gita and devotion. Prabhupada's translation is an ideal blend of literal accuracy and religious insight."

Dr. Thomas J. Hopkins
Professor of Religion, Franklin and Marshall College

"The Bhagavad Gita, one of the great spiritual texts, is not as yet a common part of our cultural milieu. This is probably less because it is alien per se than because we have lacked just the kind of close interpretative commentary upon it that Swami Bhaktivedanta has here provided, a commentary written from not only a scholar's but a practitioner's, a dedicated lifelong devotee's point of view."

Denise Levertov,

"The increasing numbers of Western readers interested in classical Vedic thought have been done a service by Swami Bhaktivedanta. By bringing us a new and living interpretation of a text already known to many, he has increased our understanding manyfold."

Dr. Edward C Dimock, Jr.
Department of South Asian Languages and Civilization
University of Chicago

"The scholarly world is again indebted to A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Although Bhagavad Gita has been translated many times, Prabhupada adds a translation of singular importance with his commentary...."

Dr. J. Stillson Judah,
Professor of the History of Religions and Director of Libraries
Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California

"Srila Prabhupada's edition thus fills a sensitive gap in France, where many hope to become familiar with traditional Indian thought, beyond the commercial East-West hodgepodge that has arisen since the time Europeans first penetrated India.
"Whether the reader be an adept of Indian spiritualism or not, a reading of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is will be extremely profitable. For many this will be the first contact with the true India, the ancient India, the eternal India."

Francois Chenique, Professor of Religious Sciences
Institute of Political Studies, Paris, France

"As a native of India now living in the West, it has given me much grief to see so many of my fellow countrymen coming to the West in the role of gurus and spiritual leaders. For this reason, I am very excited to see the publication of Bhagavad Gita As It Is by Sri A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. It will help to stop the terrible cheating of false and unauthorized 'gurus' and 'yogis' and will give an opportunity to all people to understand the actual meaning of Oriental culture."

Dr. Kailash Vajpeye, Director of Indian Studies
Center for Oriental Studies, The University of Mexico

"...It is a deeply felt, powerfully conceived and beautifully explained work. I don't know whether to praise more this translation of the Bhagavad Gita, its daring method of explanation, or the endless fertility of its ideas. I have never seen any other work on the Gita with such an important voice and style....It will occupy a significant place in the intellectual and ethical life of modern man for a long time to come."

Dr. Shaligram Shukla
Professor of Linguistics, Georgetown University

"I can say that in the Bhagavad Gita As It Is I have found explanations and answers to questions I had always posed regarding the interpretations of this sacred work, whose spiritual discipline I greatly admire. If the aesceticism and ideal of the apostles which form the message of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is were more widespread and more respected, the world in which we live would be transformed into a better, more fraternal place."

Dr. Paul Lesourd, Author
Professeur Honoraire, Catholic University of Paris

The Bhagavad Gita As It Is is the manual to bring the individual back to God. Hare Krishna! I would like to see the 1972 edition printed in a larger size.
Nancy Christofferson - 02/13/2015 5 of 5 Stars!
Perfect Bhagavad Gita, the best one on the market. Purports by Srila Prabhupada are simple and accessible to all. He really made it easy for all w wat to read it. The more I read it, the more I want to read. SP was a high grade scholar in Sanskrit - not many people can interpret the Gita like he did. I love the new softcover bind, the thin "bible"-like paper. It is my new bible! You can understand everything about life within this book.

Nathan DuBois - 04/04/2013 5 of 5 Stars!
This is a wonderful edition of the Bhagavad-Gita. The print is very clear and easier to read than some older editions, the sanskrit seems easier to see and make out as well (esp for the beginner student). There are more plates in this edition than the older editions I've seen and so having more images of Krishna and depictions from Swami to view is very nice for meditations. I couldn't be happier with his edition of the Gita :)
Michael Warren - 02/15/2013 5 of 5 Stars!
I'm very pleased with this Bhagavadgita. The delivery was fast, but up and above the service, the translation is excellent. The purports by Swami Prabhubada are easy to understand. The message delivered by Swami Prabhupada in the purports, and the message delivered by Lord KRSNA in His Song, is thrilling. Thank you for your service of providing the Bhagavadgita, and the other devotional items you offer.
KRISHNA SOPPA - 08/29/2012 5 of 5 Stars!
The compact size of this wonderful, transcendental book makes it so easy to carry, hold and read!!!
Edward Vladich - 02/04/2012 5 of 5 Stars!
Once one connects with Srila Prabhupad's orginal '72 work - it's hard to go back to the edited/revised versions. One truly connects with Srila Prabhupad through his purports and his choice of wording them. Also the nostalgia factor is at an all time high. The KC community is truly fortunate to have access to Srila Prabhupad's original text - thanks to all those who make this particular Gita distribution seva available to the devotees (i.e.,, etc.)
Delfi Esfandi - 11/16/2011 5 of 5 Stars!
Thank you for sending this so promptly! The book has beautiful illustrations and most importantly, the purports are clear and easy to understand.
