The ignorance of metaphysical knowledge—not knowing our real identity—is humanity’s greatest predicament. It is said that there is no human mind that cannot be purified by a repeated study of the Bhagavad-Gita—just one chapter a week.
Some review comments:
“…Dr. Prasad, 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 rights……” — Dr. Zhicheng Wang, Prof. of Philosophy, Zhejiang
University, Hangzhou (near Shanghai), P. R. China
“… Prasad’s deft renderings are elegantly simple, easy to understand and unencumbered by long commentary. An ambitious work that will be appreciated by all who study the Gita … ” —- Hinduism Today, USA
“… Explanations of the theory and philosophy of selfless service has been so beautifully expounded ….” — Prof. S. Tilak, Concordia University, Canada.
