5.0 out of 5 stars Brings it together!, 28 July 2010

This review is from: Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita: An Introduction to India's Universal Science of God-realization (Paperback)
Yogananda explains things so well, especially things like this which can be very difficult to put into understanding for someone who isn't well versed in religious scriptures! He has put everything into perspective with this book! I would also recommend Autobiography of a Yogi to anyone who hasn't read it yet to get more of an insight into becoming a yogi. He has a very good way of writing for all to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely and sustaining, 18 Nov. 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita: An Introduction to India's Universal Science of God-realization (Paperback)
A valuable, fluent, spiritually nurturing, complete Gita translation into English. This version is accompanied by just a few highlights from Yogananda's much longer commentary in his "God Talks With Arjuna", positioned so they do not obstruct the reading of the Gita verses. Yogananda is a jagadguru (world spiritual teacher) and occasionally interprets words and gives meanings that will be controversial with Sanskrit scholars because he wrote from his deepest intuition; in particular, he interprets passages to show the Gita as advocating yogi meditation in general, and Kriya Yoga (his diksha) in particular. For close study, I use Yogananda's smooth and wise Gita in conjunction with Swami Tapasyananda's "Srimad Bhagavadgita" (from the Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre) which has the Sanskrit in Devanagari script, Sanskrit in Roman letters, word-by-word literal translation, and translation in English sentences.
