2.0 de 5 estrelas Disappointing translation 22 de maio de 2017
Por Amazon Customer - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
This translation is one of many which have recently been made, and there have been literally hundreds of translation of this classic. This is the third translation of the Gita I have read. To be honest, overall I prefer the language and style of these other translators (Georg Feuerstein and Stephen Mitchell). Eman Nep's example in his review illustrates well that the language in this translation sounds a bit awkward in some places.

I have also read G. Thompson's review of this book, and he says indeed that Fosse's "English is clearly not that of a native speaker" and "often sounds awkward". The review also notes that Sanskrit terms and names are not transcribed correctly.

The introduction is rather short for such a text, there are also no footnotes and no bibliography. For casual readers this book may be okay, but personally I'd rather recommend instead the translations by Feuerstein or Mitchell.
5.0 de 5 estrelas A wonderfully useful edition of the Indian Classic 22 de outubro de 2012
Por Edward Alexander Gerster - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
As one other reviewer wrote, "The introduction is worth the price alone..." It does a wonderful job in covering the history of the Mahabarata Epic, and puts in context this verse by verse translation with Sanskrit text of the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute's critical edition.

The only edition I had read previous to this, was the Sir Edwin Arnold (1832-1904) edition published by Dover. I now see how his late 19th century perspective very much influenced his translation, and Lars Martin Fosse's version is truly illuminating. Now if only my Sanskrit was up to translating for myself...

This softcover book is very handy reference for the Sanskrit scholar with a comprehensive glossary of names and a useful index. Highly recommended.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A Medal Deserved 9 de outubro de 2012
Por Michael Beloved - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
Anyone who even attempts to translate much less publish the Bhagavad Gita, deserves acclaim. This translation is honest and straight forward. Fosse was careful to read the Mahabharata from which the Gita was extracted. He has not lifted the Gita away from that base and posted it up as a religious book about non-violence and becoming one with God.

This translation is in simple English and gives the gist of the revelation in chapter 11, which is the central part of the episode.

I feel that this translation should have the transliterated English words of the Devanagari Sanskrit text, because English speakers are mostly unfamiliar with the foreign script. The Sanskrit is there but an English reader can do nothing with it. This is why I gave four instead of five stars for this edition,

The glossary is very information and adds much to the book for those of us who are not familiar with the history of the Mahabharata. Again this is a simple translation that anyone can read for an introduction to the Bhagavad Gita.

I wrote a translation and several commentaries myself, but I published an edition, Bhagavad Gita Revealed* which has the transliterated English and word-for-word meanings for those who need a more detailed exposition of the Sanskrit words.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A Book For The Western Seeker 8 de novembro de 2012
Por W.H. McDonald Jr. - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
To translate the original Sanskrit spiritual text of the Bhagavad Gita into English is a huge undertaking by itself - but to do so by someone for whom English may not be his native language is ambitious. I think Lars Martin Fosse does succeed and goes beyond the translating of Sanskrit text into readable English. His efforts make this book perhaps, much more accessible to western seekers than other translations. It is not an interpretation like Paramahansa Yogananda's wonderful classic book "God Talks With Arjuna - The Bhagavad Gita" or like those related books from others. It makes no claims to be in that category; however, it's aim is a much more simple approach which proves to be very direct and honest to the text. It doesn't get too deep poetically or philosophically which makes following it easier for a quick study. It lays it out the text in English but doesn't try to paint it with the translator's own personal views or insights.

The over-all the efforts of the translator comes off as philosophically true to text and is helpful - setting the stage for the more serious western seekers to further explore on their own any deeper personal interpretations into this text - if they are inspired to do so. It should be pointed out that the introduction is very solid and well done. It is as a good of introduction to the story the Mahabbarata as I have seen for novice western seekers.

How to rate this book was difficult - as I do not know of any truly deserving FIVE STAR ratings for any translations of this book by anyone else expect the original writer's of text which is all in Sanskrit - so, having said that, I feel that Lars Fosse has done a fair and balanced presentation of this sacred text into English. It is worthy of any truth seeker's time to read.

There is a whole series of helpful translated books by Yoga Vidya and I recommend them all.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Straight Forward But Disappointing for a Lay Reader 9 de outubro de 2012
Por Robert David STEELE Vivas - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum
This book's special niche is for those who want to read the book in Sanscrit and English at the same time.

Perhaps I have been spoiled by the excellence of The The Bhagavad Gita: A Walkthrough for Westerners that was recommended to me by Harrison Owen, himself the author of several books including Wave Rider: Leadership for High Performance in a Self-Organizing World. My review of the Gita for Westerners is a reflection of what I can get out of a book.

This one, while appreciated as a gift, and while also clearly a valuable contribution in terms of new twists on the English translation, is for me largely valuable for the ten page introduction.

I will say that the simplicity of the presentation (as in sparse sophistication demanding attention) focused my mind and I did draw out from this book the emphasis on non-attachment. In addition to the above two books, I would recommend The Zen Leader: 10 Ways to Go From Barely Managing to Leading Fearlessly, from which I drew the insight that I have been wasting time and energy trying to reform legacy systems that are too self-invested to every contemplate change, and that I should instead focus exclusively on "attracting the future" by being who I am, representing the constructive ideas that I do, and let others do with those ideas what they will.

Reading this book at a time when dark forces are conspiring to attack Iran and justify it with a variety of false flag attacks and the same kind of lies that led to the three trillion dollar war on Iraq, I try to FOCUS on the message in this book. Here is one example:

QUOTE (15): Know that this, on which all the world has been strung, is indestructible. No one can bring about the destruction of this imperishable being.

I have never been about rank or money, but I have had my ego involved in whether people, listen, learn, and do the right thing, and I see more value in the message -- do what you do for the right reasons, without expecting outcomes. The outcomes are for others to co-create by their own action.

QUOTE (21): You are only entitled to the action, never to its fruits. Do not let the fruits of action be your motive, but do not attach yourself to nonaction.

Bearing in mind that this book provides less than one percent of the content of the total Gita [the ten page introduction is certainly the highlight of the book for those of us that do not want to spend years studying these specific phrases], I confess to being a bit under-whelmed. For me, The Bhagavad Gita: A Walkthrough for Westerners is the one book to buy.

Other books I recommend to those seeking new spiritual balance include:
Your Spiritual IQ: Five Steps to Spiritual Growth
Integral Consciousness and the Future of Evolution
Empowering Public Wisdom: A Practical Vision of Citizen-Led Politics (Manifesto Series)
Society's Breakthrough!: Releasing Essential Wisdom and Virtue in All the People
Evolutionaries: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science's Greatest Idea
Conscious Evolution: Awakening Our Social Potential
