Bhagavad-gita As It Is (1972 edition)

His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

For Bhagavad-gita As It Is, the publisher recommends the Second Edition, which has been revised and enlarged to make it still more faithful to the author's original text. That edition is available as an e-book on this site. But for those interested in the older edition, here it is.

The author 

At their first meeting, in 1922, Srila Prabhupada was asked by his spiritual master, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, to broadcast Vedic knowledge in English. In the years that followed, Srila Prabhupada wrote a commentary on the Bhagavad-gita, assisted the Gaudiya Matha in its work and, in 1944, started Back to Godhead, an English fortnightly magazine.
