Bhagavad Gita

Excellent translations of the Bhagavad Gita

This is a list of translations/interpretations that I use often.
 
Sargeant, Winthrop. The Bhagavad Gita, Albany, NY: SUNY Press, 1994. (SS, RT, ET, DEF, GR). Word-by-word breakdown with all grammar, one sutra per page with room for notes. Original Sanskrit is broken up so this version is difficult to use for chanting the verses properly.
 
Yogananda, Paramahamsa. The Bhagavad Gita: Royal Science of God-Realization, Los Angeles, CA: Self-Realization Fellowship, 1995. (RT, ET, COM). Expended commentary which correlates the people in this text with inner qualities of a person. 2-Volume, beautifully bound set with 1173 total pages. ISBN 0-87612-030-3 (Hardback)
 
Gandhi, Mohandas K.. The Bhagavad Gita According to Gandhi, Berkeley, CA: Berkeley Hills Books, 2000. (ET, COM). Mahatma Gandhi's translation based on his own personal experience. 246 total pages. ISBN 1-893163-11-3 (Paperback)

what they're saying

I liked Nicolai's style of teaching -- he made Sanskrit easier to understand and has a very nice way of explaining the sutras and other components of yogic philosophy.
