    I picked up my first copy 2nd hand when I was a teenager.

    This edition translated & explained by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada - here it is for free -

    Yes, I keep a copy on my bed-side table and when I feel down I open it and read random passages.

    I re-read this one often (it sits on the nightstand) and always learn something new.

    Johnny, that's a nice quote! Thanks!

    One must be a vegetarian before he can grasp the true meaning of The Bhagavad Gita. It is a case of self-realisations. Realizing the "self" exist in all living things.
    Jai Srila Prabhupada !

    I love the Bhagavad Gita. I did yoga for years and really enjoy the teachings.

    I wonder if any of you faced this dilemma like I did -

    "There are hundreds of books on Bhagavad Gita available today. How do I pick a book that suits my philosophical taste ?"

    I have summarized my thoughts and ideas on how to go about this in my new Bhagavad Gita blog:

    I am currently reading it and I totally dig it man! I bring it with me everywhere I go and read it everyday. That should be required reading for all people.

    Hare krishna Hari Bol.

    My Favorite of all the Translations of the Gita is The Bhagavad Gita as it is By His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. I have read a few other translation but this one just has a way of touching the heart.

    nice typical bogus quote that you can find on a zillion Gita websites to promote Hinduism but lacks a source.

    And Einstein also wasn't a vegetarian, except MAYBE for the last year of his life.
