(Bhagavad Gita As It Is)

Bhagavad Gita is widely recognized as the compendium of all Vedic wisdom, yet there are few who have the necessary qualifications to understand and teach this all-important scripture. Swami Bhaktivedanta who is a devotee in the line of disciplic succession from Arjuna is one of these few. His introduction to the Geetopanishad is a classic in its own right.
