The Bhagavad Gita is an early epic poem that recounts the conversation between Arjuna the warrior and his charioteer Krishna, the manifestation of God. In the moments before a great battle, the dialogue sets out the important lessons Arjuna must learn to change the outcome of the war he is to fight, and culminates in Krishna revealing to the warrior his true cosmic form, counselling him to search for the universal perfection of life. Ranging from instructions on yoga postures to dense moral discussion, the Gita is one of the most important Hindu texts, as well as serving as a practical guide to living well.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

Reviews about The Bhagavad Gita (Penguin Classics) (7):
Jogrnd
Five stars does not do this book justice. It is a singularly beautiful story and one of the world's most important works of philosophy and spirituality. But more than that, in this edition the author manages to achieve the nearly impossible; Patton translates the original poem into English verse that is remarkable fluid, readable, and graceful.

If you have any curiosity about the world or any interest in the fundamental nature of humanity, read this.

This is the only translation of The Bhagavad Gita that I've read, so as a translation I have nothing to compare it to. I can say that it was an easy read, and I was able to finish it in one sitting. As a work of literature, the translation was smooth and poetic, and I really enjoyed reading it. I really couldn't put it down. As a religious/spiritual work, I found it to be very enlightening, and it touched on many aspects of one's spiritual and daily life. I'm glad that I read it, and I think that any spiritual person regardless of their religion will find it useful. I only took one star away, because of my own ignorance. Since, this is the only translation that I've read, I don't know if there is a better version out there.

Reaching into our souls this timeless work from thousands of years ago makes us remember who we truly are and shows us the way to awake from suffering. The path to freedom could be made plainer or simpler. Every line causes one to pause to sink into the blissful words.

I own two copies of the Bhagavad Gita. I enjoy this one more. I enjoy it more because of the intoduction which is basically college lecture or essay. You do not have to read the introduction to enjoy this book (as I enjoy my other copy which has no introduction) but, it adds to the reading of it by adding context and a clearer explanation of this translation.
Llathidan
To me this seems like a great translation of a book that's regarded by many to be holy scripture. Arjuna's inner conflict most definitely can be related to a given person's conscience trying to do what is right in what appears to be a paradoxical existence. Krishna's divine point of view sheds light on and puts this in perspective. This one is worth reading again and again.

A fantastic dialogue between a warrior prince (Arjuna) and God incarnate (Kishna) about fighting the good fight; right action, refusal of selfishness from motive by performing duties to our true Self, not ourselves.
One of the great books of Vedanta philosophy, Mahatma Gandhi referred to is as "the book par excellence for the seeker of Truth" in his autobiography.
This translation by Sir Edwin Arnold from the Sanskrit into traditional English-type prose is considered by many to be the best translation available, and I agree. I have read numerous translations, and none have the beauty, fullness, and informative extolling of virtue for living expressed more artistically.

At first I was surprised at the frequent words, notes written in the paperback sent to me.
But I'm taking a class and I love seeing someone else's thoughts. Now it has even more
notes in it, but I'm keeping this book and its comments. :) Lovely words from Krishna.
Juan Mascaro's translation remains simply the best.

The English is clear, the words are considered, and the balance of the sentences is simply marvellous.

It reminds one of the simple, balanced writing of the King James Bible. My feeling is that the way Mascaro writes English is strongly influenced by his Catalan heritage, yet the exactitude of his prose reflects his long association with Cambridge.

In my opinion, comparing several other translations, Mascaro's translation delivers what is most important-- the spirit of the message in simple, clear english.
