The Bhagavad Gita

Translated by W. J. Johnson

Oxford World's Classics

  • The Bhagavad Gita is the most widely read Hindu religious text in the Western world and a key work for understanding Indian religions and the way Hinduism has been represented in modern India and the West.
  • W. J. Johnson's translation is up-to-date, clear and accurate. Described by the Daily Telegraph as 'an excellent primer in the Hindu belief system' and by the Good Book Guide as 'freshly accessible to a Western readership...The presentation is both scholarly and inviting.'
  • In addition to the usual OWC features of introduction and notes, this edition includes notes on metre, on the pronunciation of Sanskrit names, and a list of Sanskrit names and terms.
