~translation by Stephen Mitchell
A very nice translation of this sacred text. I don't know how it compares to others, but I feel that it was beautifully done. The Bhagavad Gita gives a unique perspective on life; a handbook on how to live well according to Hindu and Buddhist traditions that has immediate applications to everyday living. If you haven't read the Bhagavad Gita before, I highly recommend it. A short, but meaningful read.
