“...I am very interested
in your translation of Gita. Though I
have many English translations,
I think your translation is the best one.
So far, there are 5 versions in
China, and I hope we could translate
your "Gita" into Chinese too.
Could you grant the Chinese translation
Dr. Zhicheng Wang, Prof. of Philosophy,
Zhejiang University, Hangzhou (near Shanghai),
“ .... I would like to include the
translation of the Gita by Dr. Ramananda
Prasad in my site. I am interested in
representing India fairly, and I fear
that the translation of the Gita by Sir
Edwin Arnold that is distributed all over
the net will do more to
turn students away rather than introduce
them fairly to the text….”
Prof. Anthony Beavers, University
of Evansville, Indiana.
“ …. A wonderful translation.
It's about time that we get a new translation
of the Bhagavad-Gita. Dr. Prasad takes
a much more low-key approach, simply translating
the Gita to the best of his ability and
allowing the reader to make sense of it.
More accurate than most other translations
and rendered into modern prose, ….”
Gsibbery, Baton Rouge, LA, USA
“….American Gita Society now
offers a translation, rendering thought
provoking delicacy for the scholar, and
at the same time provides unbiased commentaries
that can be easily understood by the layperson.
This rendition does not endorse, propagate,
or oppose any causes, and delivers
a translation that is devoid of all personal
motivation and speculation …”
