The Gita offers a succinct summary of ancient Indian philosophy, with
particular emphasis on the Supreme Spirit as both immanent and transcendent.
Since its introduction into the Western world some two hundred years ago, the
poem has been translated into practically every modern tongue, and is today the
most widely read and discussed of all Eastern scriptures. Its emphasis is on two
aspects selflessness. Recension of the Gita, combined with illuminating Essays
on the poem make the present work unique. It works as a bridge between the
Gita's oriental approach and modern occidental thought.
