About The Message of the Gita
This book contains the original Sanskrit text of the Bhagavad Gita, a translation partly by Sri Aurobindo, and commentary drawn entirely from Essays on the Gita, Sri Aurobindo's principal work on this important scripture. The editor, Anilbaran Roy, was an early disciple of Sri Aurobindo, and prepared the commentary with the permission of Sri Aurobindo. While introducing the first edition of the book in 1938 the editor wrote, "The Gita is a great synthesis of Aryan spiritual culture and Sri Aurobindo's luminous exposition of it…sets out its inner significances in a way that brings them home to the modern mind." This new edition has been brought out after a long time.
