Product Details


“This new take on the Bhagavad Gita makes the heartfelt teaching accessible in a whole new way. By adding depth and dimension to this sacred text, Richard and Mary share a true gift with the world. I strongly recommend this new translation and commentary on the Gita to all students of yoga.”—Kino MacGregor, author of Get Your Yoga On

“Freeman and Taylor have outdone themselves in this masterful new translation of the majestic Song of the Blessed God (Bhagavād Gītā), beautifully introduced by their down-to-earth yet revelatory study in the first half of this amazing work, When Love Comes to Light. With the creative and insightful translation of the central concept of bhakti as ‘love’ (instead of the usual ‘devotion’), Freeman and Taylor do indeed cast a new and refreshing light on the peerless teaching the dear God Krishna bestows upon the powerful and thoughtful warrior Arjuna . . . This great book, fruit of the authors’ lifelong teaching and skillful service to countless fortunate students, really does bring the true love of and by Krishna to light in all its glory. It will not fail to impart grace and joy to those lucky enough to read it.”—Robert Thurman, Jey Tsong Khapa Professor Emeritus of Indo-Tibetan Buddhology

“This book casts the time worn but contemporary teachings of the Gita in a brilliant new light. On the battlefield of today’s complex world, this is a timely guide to help all of us on the path of yoga embody discriminating wisdom, skillful action and compassionate presence. I love the textual references, embodied practices and insights into the ways in which we are undeniably interwoven.”—Tias Little, author of Yoga of the Subtle Body
