Bhagavad Gita

Hi Gareth,
There are hundreds of versions and translations of this sacred book, taken from Mahabharata´s episode.
Mahabharata mentions events extensive up to the present Kali´s Era ( kaliyuga).
Writen 5000 years ago, a profound philosophy is the dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna, a devotee and friend, quite before a bloodish family war of 100 Dhratarastra´s descendants had begun.

Annie Besant´s work " Sugestions on Bhagavad Gita´s Studies" ( I don´t know the right tittle in English) is very useful and also deep and easy for reading is the work of A.C. Bhativedanta Swami Praphupada entitled " Bhagavad Gita As It Is", it has 2 edditions, on econdensed full of comments and the complete version, with many pictures and printed on couché paper, and de luxe color.
The first may be found on Theosophical Publishing House and the second may be purchased from Bhativedanta Book Trust, very affordably.
Although it was written by the founder of the Movement for the Conscience of Krishna, as being translated by an authentique indian man, raised under the hinduism, it contains valuable information concerning to the circumstances some expressions or facts were written.
Many others next to me may also help giving other BG Engkish versions...
