This definitive edition of the Gita is, due to the extensive purports, a storehouse of ancient Vedic wisdom, poetry, politics and history. It should serve as a useful textbook for students and a reference book for scholars of religion, as well as a general introduction to Vedic culture and practical philosophy. It is written for serious readers in general, not only from a scholar’s point of view, but as a life-long practitioner. It is this sense of devotion that Srila Prabhupada has captured in his discussion of the verses and which other commentators have failed to reveal. For this reason, Bhagavad-gita As It Is is an essential work for understanding the Indian religious tradition.
