Product description


One of the few books with the excellent commentary of Sri Sankaracharya. An excellent text but not for casual read, a must read for real purport of Gita. Each verse is explained beautifully --Harshit Shukla Feb 15, 2015

This book contains the English translation (actually interpretation by the translator) of the original Sankara bhashyam --Kiran Mar 18, 2014

Brilliant, a clear and beautiful exposition on the Geeta. For those who are truly interested on penetrating the deeper meaning contained in the story. It is most useful to dedicate time everyday to study the commentary. I fully recommend this copy for your study. --By Ravichandra Debie on September 26, 2009
