This book presents the full Sanskrit text with an English translation based on Sri Aurobindo's work Essays on the Gita. Some of the slokas Sri Aurobindo had formally translated, but other verses he freely rendered in English, profusely and often without quotation marks, and others he summarised or merely interpreted in the course of writing his text. The editor has worked with all these variants to produce the translations for this volume. He quotes numerous passages from Essays on the Gita as they apply to certain slokas. He also includes the entire first chapter of that work as an introduction and the entire last chapter as a profoundly comprehensive review of the teaching of the Bhagavad Gita.
