This was an interesting charity shop find which piqued my interest since I have very patchy knowledge of Indian culture and the Hindu religion which are encompassed in this sprawling poem.

Maha (a prefix indicating greatness) Jaya/Bharata (Great victory) is primarily an epic tale of the conflict between factions of a royal family (The (Good) Pandavas and the (Bad) Kauravas) who are at war with each other on a supernatural, mystical and godly scale. Intertwined with this basic plot are philosophical, spiritual and historical musings on life, love, family, respect, duty, vengeance and forgiveness (amongst many others) all conveniently abridged in a palatable retelling of the huge Sanskrit scripture.

Since it is a retelling and heavily summarised, it would be unjust to judge this as a proper novel. Instead, I see it almost as non-fiction and a gateway to a layman's understanding to the roots of Indian culture. With this in mind, it isn't a really knock your socks off read but it is a really interesting and educational adaptation and definitely worth a read: 3/5

This is a compelling translation, with excellent chapter introductions, useful definitions of Sanskrit words, and an outstading introduction. The chapter introductions aren't by Easwaran, but are just as good. I've described the Gita in a review of Gandhi's version, but again, what strikes me are the similarities to Buddhism and Daoism. And of course the differences from Christianity. Altogether, a highly recommended and very rewarding read.

Një Klasik i spiritualitetit indian - Që nga udhë- zimet mbi pozicionet e jogas, e deri te diskutimet morale të detajuara, Gita është një prej teksteve më të rëndësishme të Hinduizmit dhe gjithashtu shërben si një udhërrëfyes praktik se si të jetosh mirë.
