For courses in Indian or Asian Philosophy or Religions, Asian Studies, Non-Western Civilizations, Survey of World Religions, Great Texts of Humankind, and Philosophical Ideas in Literature. Unlike all other English translations of the Bhagavad Gita which are either too literal and abstract, or written in very formal, incomprehensible English, or are philosophically one-sided this student-friendly transcreation offers an unbiased philosophical perspective and presents the main religious and philosophical themes of the Bhagavad Gita in simple/ordinary language easily accessible to today's students. It enables them to read this great work as if it were originally written in their own language and to capture the excitement of discovering its relevance to their own lives.
