About the Author:

Juan Mascaro studied Sanskrit, Pali and English at Cambridge University, and later became Professor of English at the University of Barcelona. After the Spanish Civil War, he returned to settle in England permanently. He also translated some Upanishads and the Dhammapada for Penguin Classics. Simon Brodbeck studied at the universities of Cambridge and London, and completed a Ph.D. thesis on the Bhagavad Gita at the School of Oriental and African Studies.

From the Inside Flap:

The 18 chapters of the Bhagavad Gita (c. 500 BC), the glory of Sanskrit literature, encompass the whole spiritual struggle of a human soul, and the three central themes of this immortal poem arise from the symphonic vision of God in all things and of all things in God.

About the Book
"The task of truly translating such a work is indeed formidable. To hope for success in it the translator must at least possess three qualities. He must be an artist in words as well as a Sanskrit scholar, and above all, perhaps, he must be deeply sympathetic with the spirit of the original. Mr Mascarů has succeeded so well because he possesses all these qualifications" The Times Literary Supplement
