Discourses on The Gita by spiritual leaders are a part of the cultural life of every major Indian city.

Some Indians disagree with its vision of ethics or consider it a relic of the past; but even they, too, must engage with it closely in order to refute it. Davis's book is an ideal introduction to the text, showing how the meanings of a book reside not just in its words but its life in history. Rival schools of Hindu theology have risen from various turns of Krishna's phrases, while Westerners have seen echoes of their own traditions.

In modern India, Gandhi thought the Gita reflected the eternal battle between light and dark in every human heart, and in the drive for Indian independence, even secular nationalists championed it as a patriotic text. The Gita and the moral issues it raises are still alive. It's a living, breathing text that has constantly been in motion since its origin.

Davis neatly organizes a great deal of material and he presents it in utterly accessible prose. This is an easy read - and a great one too. Being thoroughly researched and documented this serves as a primer on Gita.

And also a template for those who would like to study the impact of religious texts on the life and history of human race. Like the Sacred Books of the East in the nineteenth century, the Princeton series offers a fresh canon of global stature; thanks to Davis's superb retelling of the history of this powerful, influential, living classic, the Gita has its honoured place on that shelf.

Clooney, Religions of South Asia "A highly enjoyable volume that will be of interest to a large educated audience, to religious specialists, and to historians of modern and colonial India, among others.

Davis traces the varying course of its semantic trajectory through history with erudite clarity. A must-read for anyone interested in the Gita.

Reading intelligently depends in part on knowing how others in the past have read, and for the Gita's past, Richard Davis has provided the best guidance available. Davis's authoritative voice is a dependable guide throughout.

I cannot imagine this book being done better by anyone else. The Bhagavad Gita is intended for repeated reading.

Its teaching is very subtle and integrates the core of oneself into the vastness of this universe of experience. Being transformative in re-envisioning oneself and the world, more depth and interconnectedness can be discovered with each repeated reading.

This special format of the English translation of the Bhagavad Gita presents a way to quickly read the intended meanings of the entire text in three or four sittings.

This is facilitated in part by removing the Devanagari of the text and any word-for-word meanings. The Sanskrit language condensed verse formation requires an expert elaboration that is succinct enough to not drag out the reading of the text, missing the big, integrated picture for the minutia. This is uniquely done here by employing a bold font to distinguish the original words of the Bhagavad Gita from the embedded introductions and explanations in normal font.

Brief introductions are given to the entire Bhagavad Gita and to each chapter. These set up the following teaching and connect the teaching to what has been said before and what will be said later.

This facilitates a quick integrated understanding of the teaching as you read.

Additionally, a unique index is provided to locate the important terms, concepts, and topics. For some reason many Indian authors give no index in their publications of the Bhagavad Gita. The uniqueness here is that the index is not to page numbers, but rather to chapter.

This allows the index here to be applicable and very useful to any other translation of the Bhagavad Gita that you have relied upon but lacked an index.King Pandu was cursed for a sin while hunting, due to which he was not permitted to unite with his wife. Having successfully completed these thirteen years of exile, facing many obstacles and dangers instigated by the Kauravas, the Pandavas, as per the terms of the agreement, approached the Kauravas for their share of the kingdom.

Pandu passed away and his sons, the Pandavas, were all brought up by Dhritarashtra along with his sons known as Kauravas.
