The Bhagavad Gita is a sacred scripture of epic dimensions and is the key sacred text of Hinduism. It means the "Song of God" and is often called the "Song Celestial". Alan Jacobs has succeeded in revitalising the ancient text into a form that reveals the full majesty of this magnificent scripture as well as its practical message for todays men and women. The outdated English of previous translations has been transformed and given clear meaning. Alan Jacobs uses contemporary free verse based on innovative metaphors to provide a clear meaning for todays readers. It is mandala poetry-each verse is a mandala for meditation. "It is like a great symphony. Each chapter relates to the last but leads on to the coda." His incisive philosophic commentary dusts off the archaism of 1500 years and restores the text as a transforming instrument pointing the way to self-realisation.
