"If a Westerner wants to experience firsthand why the Bhagavad Gita has for centuries been heralded as one of the world’s most important texts, they could do no better than to start their studies with Isaac Bentwich’s Gita – A Timeless Guide For Our Time. It could easily have been entitled “My First Gita” because it so beautifully captures the essence of this ancient Sanskrit text in a way that modern thinkers everywhere can enjoy and easily understand. I have not often recommended the Bhagavad Gita to my western students—I will now."
Michael A. Singer
#1 New York Times bestselling author of Untethered Soul and The Surrender Experiment
“The Gita points beyond the deadening materialism of modernity and shows how the greed, selfishness, and destruction that threaten our existence can be overcome. This exquisite, lyrical translation by Dr. Isaac Bentwich is a great achievement. It will open a door to greater joy, meaning, and purpose for all who read it.”

"Translated in a poetic form matching the musical meter of the original Sanskrit text. Touches the heart and the soul by its poetic and musical rendition. Great translation of a great text."

“Bentwich’s Gita: A Timeless Guide for Our Time is pure poetry. This beautifully lyrical and melodic translation makes the Sanskrit scripture sing. Bentwich translates not only from one language to another but also one time to another, skillfully showing us how to apply the Gita’s ancient spiritual teachings to our contemporary lives. His love for this classic text shines through in every word.”
Author of Crescendo, Co-author (w/ Brian Weiss MD) of Miracles Happen
“This is a totally unique translation of the Gita, unlike any other English translation I’ve seen. A moving, fresh, readable discourse, which puts the music back into the “Song of the Lord” that is usually lost in translation, and is gender inclusive - which I believe Sri Krishna would also applaud. Highly recommended.”
