A verse by verse exposition of the Gita by Swami Ranganathananda, president of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission.

These extempore lectures are packed with many stimulating and delightfully refreshing ideas, and drawing upon the works of eminent national and international poets, scientists, authors, and historians. This commentary explains the universal and humanistic teachings of The Song Celestial, as Edwin Arnold called the Gita, in the context of modern thought and modern needs.
