Description

Back of the Book:

Than the Gita no better commentary on the Vadas has been written or can be written. The essence of the Shrutis, or the Upanishads, is hard to be understood, seeing that there are so many commentaros, each one trying to interpret in his own way. Then the Lord Himself comes, He who is the inspirer of the Shrutis, to show us the meaning of them, as the preacher of the Gita, and today India wants nothing better than that method of interpretation.

 

PREFACE:

The Bhagavad-Gita is a most, if not the most popular Hindu Scripture. It is regarded as one of the three scriptures, the other tow being the Upanishads and the Brahma-Sutras. All the great Acharyas or founders of new sects among the Hindus have written commentaries on these three. Among them the Gita has the largest number of expositions, for a good many of the followers of the different sects have written glosses on the main commentaries of their great Acharyas. It can be stated without any hesitation that there is no other Hindu Scripture which has been so frequently commented upon.

Sridhara Swami, whose commentary we are giving here in English, was born at Balodi in Gujrat, about six centuries ago, and chronologically he comes immediately after Vopadeva, the great grammarian. He was a disciple of Paramananda Puri and dhis chosen Deity was Nrisimha (the fourth of the ten Incarnations in Hindu mythology). Besides this scholium on the Gita, Sridhara has written commentaries on the Gita, Sridhara has written commentaries on the Bhagavata and the Vishnupurana, known as, Bhavarthadipika and Atmaprakasa respectively. Sridhara's present commentary on the Gita is called Subodhini. It is, as the name implies, very lucid, and at the same time brief. Though Sridhara belongs to the Advaita School of Sankara, and at the beginning of the commentary says, " After scrutinizing according to my light the views of the Commentator (Sankara) and likewise the words of his expounders, I am beginning this commentary on the Gita," yet his leaning towards devotion as opposed to knowledge is so very marked that the orthodox section at first refused to accept his commentary as authoritative. For a decision, the commentary was placed before the Lord Visweswara (According to some, before the Lord Bindumadhava) in Banaras, and tradition says that the lord appeared in a dream and give the verdict thus ;

- " I know the true teaching of the Scriptures, and so does Suka. Vyasa may or may not know. But Sridhara knows everything through the grace of the Lord Nrisimha." After that the orthodox section withdrew their objections.

Sridhara's commentary on the Gita though well known in Sanskrit, is not available in English, We have therefore translated it to make it accessible to the English-knowing public. We have followed the text of the Ananda Ashrama edition, except in a few places, where the text of other editions adopted from various recensions, has been found more satisfactory. The words of the translation of the Gita text have been italicized in the commentary.

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
