Well, to all the readers who are baffled by the opinions and interpretations of the authors here, who are supposedly the translators with a Rudimental knowledge of the original language in which the text is present, please read The Bhagavad Gita by the Indian sages and authors who were and are well versed in Sanskrit I would recommend the one by Sri Paramhansa Yogananda or by A C Bhaktivedanta You will, then only, revel in the full knowledge and the depth And to some of the readers Well, to all the readers who are baffled by the opinions and interpretations of the authors here, who are supposedly the translators with a Rudimental knowledge of the original language in which the text is present, please read The Bhagavad Gita by the Indian sages and authors who were and ar...
