Of all the English rendering of the Bhagavad Gita, Prof P Lal's version preserves the dignity and grace of the original epic poem. The Bhagavad Gita, Hinduism's core sacred text, is in fact an excerpt from the great Indian epic, the Mahabharata. P Lal's rendition of Hinduism's core sacred text is both poetic and swift to read, remaining consistently faithful to the oral and musical tradition of Vyasa.
The Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue on and of Dharma. It enshrines the essential values of the Vedic, Upanishadic and epic traditions -- shruti (the revealed) and smriti (the remembered). Its structure is informal question and answer; its mode is enquiry and search; its goal is self-discovery and spiritual illumination.
Many great thinkers from our time, such as Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi and Albert Schweizer as well as Madhvacarya, Sankara and Ramanuja from bygone ages have all contemplated and deliberated upon its timeless message. The primary purpose of the Bhagavad- Gita is to illuminate for all of humanity the realization of the true nature of divinity; it is the only scripture in the world to claim that God resides in each one of us and is present in all living beings.
