As a book of scripture, the Bhagavadgita has assumed a position of universal interest. Its teachings have gained appreciation not only in India, but far beyond its borders, Our Gita Library alone comprises about 1400 editions of the Bhagavadgita published in 34 different languages including 8 foreign languages. This is our humble attempt for bringing out this English edition of the Gita in pocketsize and in a popular form. We trust it will find favor with the English reading public. The English translation of this edition has been based on the Hindi rendering of the Gita made by Syt. Jayadayal Goyandka appearing in the Gita-Tattva Number of the Hindi monthly 'Kalyan', published by the Gita Press. In preparing the present English translation, the translators have made use, every now and then, of other English translations of the Gita, and we express our grateful acknowledgement for the same.
In order to add to the utility of this small volume an introduction by Syt. Jayadayal Goyandka and a synopsis of the Gita have been prefixed to the translation and an article by the same author bearing on the Gita has been appended thereto.
