    Has anyone ever read the Bhavagad-Gita? I have it at home but I've never read it? Is it worth it?

    Thank you. I'm sure I will enjoy it. What do you think of George Harrison? he has some good lyrics. i also have this book called Where There is Light. I forget how to spell the man's name who wrote it.

    The bhavagad-Gita is the gospel of Hinduism

    Yes I love George Harrison....I love that chant too...I have this thing that I ordered off the internet that has all George's stuff and it was 120 dollars but it was definitely worth it!

    yes the Gita is one of the most valuable and beautifully written works of all time, i suggest the Paramahansa Yoganada version (of the Self Realization Fellowship), as this man has quite a knack for understanding and explaining things of this nature...

    The Bhagavad Gita is actually part of the epic, the Mahabharata. The Gita is one of the most beautiful texts I have ever read.

    I first read the bhavagad-gita about a year ago and it opened me up to a whole new thing. I don't think I would have talked to some of the most amazing people I have met, or been able to teach some of the things I have if it wasn't for reading that. I hope you read it and take all it is offering.

    The Gita is good. I have an old copy put out by Mentor books, $.95 cents! Can you believe it! It was translated by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood with an intro by Aldous Huxley.
    The Gita teaches Non-Attachment.

    Read it.

    The gita is not hindu scripture or gospel, it is only one part of it. It is the truth as spoken to Arjuna by Lord Krsna. Hindus might believe in what the gita has to say, but they are not correct in their interpretation of the Words. They are a confused organization just like every other religion, especially Christianity.

    VERY good read.

    I read it once, and although I gained so much from it, its one of those texts that I realize I will have to read PLENTY more times to even touch upon it.
