    This is a version of Jnanadeva's Gita commentary I am not familiar with - Jnaneshwari tr. by M. R. Yardi. It appears to be out of print. Has anyone read it; is it a good translation?

    Never mind - I found it online and will compare with Pradan & other versions: http://www.saibaba.us/texts/jnaneshwari/

    Re: Bhagavad Gita Commentaries, and resources

    Someone posted a link to a lecture in English from a Indian swami, the lectures started with commentary of the shlokas of the Gita Mahatmya, has anyone saved the link? I can't find it anymore.


    edit: found it looking for gita as geeta in the search function. http://hindudharmaforums.com/showthr...ighlight=geeta

    I just wanted to say that the Jnaneshwar's commentary is the single greatest spiritual text I have ever read.
