Review "Anyone that has read one of the several English translations of the famed Bhagavad-gita, with its richness of life-affirming truth, may have come away feeling spiritually refreshed yet vaguely uncertain as to whether or not the Gita upholds a clearly developed system of thought. With its sophisticated thematic approach, this Comprehensive Guide brings clarity to the Gita's content in a most thorough and systematic way, inviting both first-time and seasoned readers to vigorously engage with the text while enjoying the rewards of deep understanding. Especially impressive is the fact that this volume not only provides the reader with a stimulating learning experience, but also serves as an exceptional reference book for specific topics. Thus, in terms of my own Gita studies, I am happy to have the benefit of this Comprehensive Guide, as well as the excellent, highly literal, translation that comes with it. And I certainly will be recommending this book to my students of Indian philosophy." – Kenneth Valpey Ph.D., Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies " H.D. Goswami's Comprehensive Guide with Literal Translation provides readers with unique insight into the essential meaning of Bhagavad-gita, with succinct, carefully crafted explications of complex philosophical themes. Concise yet thorough, this skillful exposition, containing hundreds upon hundreds of key Gita references, affords a conceptual window into the core elements of Krishna's teachings to Arjuna. Throughout this work we are graced by the knowledge, Sanskrit expertise and personal illuminations of one who is not only a highly trained scholar, but also a widely experienced spiritual teacher. Goswami is thus to be commended for so eloquently polishing the various facets of this most precious and rare jewel of sacred literature so that we, the readers, may perceive that much more of its unbounded brilliance." – Graham M. Schweig Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy and Religion, Christopher Newport University "In the late 18th century Bhagavad-gita became the first Sanskrit work to be rendered in a European tongue, and since that time it has generated countless translations and secondary analyses. Among these, however, H.D. Goswami's Comprehensive Guide with Literal Translation excels in its capacity to schematize and summarize the Gita's powerful appeal as a source of perennial wisdom. The literal translation's careful nuancing demonstrates the author's Sanskrit mastery and philosophical expertise while the Guide's focused precision and theological depth reflect the training of a Harvard doctorate as well as the spiritual insight of one dedicated to the sannyasa (renounced) order. Thematically divided into twelve parts, each with multiple subsections that focus on major issues, the Guide's strongest features are its expert pinpointing of verses that pertain to each theological topic and its contextual analysis, articulated in succinct crisp prose that eschew both academic jargon and sectarian rhetoric. It is an excellent resource not only for those approaching the Gita as a spiritual manual, but also for those seeking a more systematic and rigorous understanding of its philosophical content. I look forward to using this work in my Hinduism courses." – Edwin Bryant Ph.D., Professor of Hindu Religion and Philosophy, Rutgers University From the Author "Having read, studied and cherished the Gita for decades at the feet ofmy teacher Srila Prabhupada, I could not help but share the profoundconceptual connections that make this Sanskrit text so magical. The Gita is widely recognized as a work of spiritual and philosophical genius,and early on I fell in love with its Sanskrit text. My sincere wishhere, through explication and translation, is to bring the generalreader deep within that original Sanskrit. I hope you enjoy thejourney." - H.D.
