    The version which Scoob has provided a link of, translation by Edwin Arnold is probably the best translation of the Geeta I have read. Thanks Scoob and Turificator.

    There surely is a lot of strength in Bhagavad Geeta.

    What I find the greatest section, which I can understand and relate to is here:

    Arjuna.
    And what road goeth he who, having faith,
    Fails, Krishna! in the striving; falling back
    From holiness, missing the perfect rule?
    Is he not lost, straying from Brahma's light,
    Like the vain cloud, which floats 'twixt earth and heaven
    When lightning splits it, and it vanisheth?
    Fain would I hear thee answer me herein,
    Since, Krishna! none save thou can clear the doubt.

    Krishna.
    He is not lost, thou Son of Pritha! No!
    Nor earth, nor heaven is forfeit, even for him,
    Because no heart that holds one right desire
    Treadeth the road of loss! He who should fail,
    Desiring righteousness, cometh at death
    Unto the Region of the Just; dwells there
    Measureless years, and being born anew,
    Beginneth life again in some fair home
    Amid the mild and happy. It may chance
    He doth descend into a Yogin house
    On Virtue's breast; but that is rare! Such birth
    Is hard to be obtained on this earth, Chief!
    So hath he back again what heights of heart
    He did achieve, and so he strives anew
    To perfectness, with better hope, dear Prince!
    For by the old desire he is drawn on
    Unwittingly; and only to desire
    The purity of Yog is to pass
    Beyond the Sabdabrahm, the spoken Ved.
    But, being Yogi, striving strong and long,
    Purged from transgressions, perfected by births
    Following on births, he plants his feet at last
    Upon the farther path. Such as one ranks
    Above ascetics, higher than the wise,
    Beyond achievers of vast deeds! Be thou
    Yogi Arjuna! And of such believe,
    Truest and best is he who worships Me
    With inmost soul, stayed on My Mystery!

    The Bhagavad-Gita is great indeed, but I think that this might be the best and truest translation of it: http://www.asitis.com/ Srila Prabhupada explaining to the world the true message of Lord Krishna.

    AW: Bhagavad-gita

    The Bhagavad-Gita is a great book. It describes the principle of fight as essential for the path to godness. It is a message for the Kshattrya (warrior caste) to keep up the dharma by living up to the caste they were born in.

    I realized links to teutonic paganism in this book: the way of the warrior, the bits of pantheism (Krsna is everything and is inside everything and in neopaganism there is a strong believe in the godness of nature) and the Avatara (when Odin materialised in Midgard as Grimnir this is the teutonic Avatara).

    There are still problems occuring due to the author of the Gita. Perhaps it is the man who brought the Gita back to the consciousness of the Indians, the Indian philosopher Sankara himself. Some people say that he wrote the Gita and just pretended it to be older.

    The translations of Bhagwad Geeta may have the tilts of their translators. http://www.bhagavad-gita.us/ also is a good translation.

    There are many misconceptions also, like what Waldule says, 'It is a message for the Kshattrya (warrior caste) to keep up the dharma by living up to the caste they were born in.' Bhagwad Geeta, IMHO, is not about a war, it is not about warriors, it is not about caste, it is about a person's duty (dharma). The fight is in a person's heart, the doubts, what should I do, am I doing the correct thing.

    Bhagwad Geeta is a Vaishnava scripture (those who worship Vishnu, Rama, and Krishna exclusively), but the message is true for all. Yes, we do not know about the authorship of Bhagwad Geeta, unless one believes that it was recorded by Sanjay, the charioteer to the blind king, Dhritarashtra, father of Kaurava princes. Sanjay reported what he saw telepathically by special powers. I do not think that many people will agree to Sankaracharya being its author, though the illustrious teacher had all the where-withall to do something like that.

    AW: Bhagavad-gita

    I once heard extracts from an audio recording of the Bhagavadgita which I found very beautiful and soothing.

    Does anyone know whether there are good quality mp3s to download from the internet?
