The Bhagavad Gita

A New Translation with Commentary by David White


David White

This is a teaching translation of the Bhagavad Gitã, designed for use in high school, college, and university courses in the departments of religious studies, philosophy, anthropology, and general humanities. It will also appeal to the general reader interested in Asian religions and philosophies. What makes this translation useful for teaching are the expository materials contained in the Commentary, where every passage in the text which requires explanation is followed immediately by the necessary exposition.
Contents: This translation of the Gitã presents the text in idiomatic English, omitting epic epithets and other Sanskrit expressions peculiar to the time of its composition. The commentaries follow the passages to be clarified.
