Review : The Bhavagad Gita Comes Alive: A Radical Translation By Jeffrey Armstrong

Review : The Bhavagad Gita Comes Alive: A Radical Translation By Jeffrey Armstrong

For those looking for an authentic English translation of the Bhagavad Gita, Jeffrey Armstrong’s recently published “The Bhavagad Gita Comes Alive: A Radical Translation” is a must read. What makes it radical? All other translations of the Gita use “colonized” English terms such as ‘soul’, ‘sin’, ‘lord’, and many other terms which do not fully capture the essence of the meaning of the original Sanskrit term. It is not that the Sanskrit terms have not been translated properly to English in other translations of the Gita; they simply cannot be translated with an identical English word. In other words, they are non-translatable.

Thus, where necessary, Armstrong chooses to leave the Sanskrit word in place without distorting the meaning by using an improper English word. The glossary contains in-depth explanations of dozens of such Sanskrit non-translatables. The final result is a rich and inspiring translation of each shloka which leaves no doubt as to what Sri Krishna meant in the timeless discourse with Arjuna on the battlefield.
