The PON series is a philosophically-inclined fantasy series about a holy war between several vaguely middle-eastern nations.

The Bhagavad-Gita, on the other hand, is a sacred Hindu text that teaches principles of Hindu thought and ethics through a great war. So, yeah. This is a classic of world literature, and many people who are way smarter and better than me have had their lives changed by the Bhagavad-Gita. There were some lovely passages, and as far as religious writings go, it was rather readable and incredibly concise.

But it is a very easy read and can be used as your starting book on BG. Feb 18, Dan rated it it was amazing At last, a translation of the Gita that is formatted so that you know where you are in the story and outside the story. A book like any sacred book: to be studied, not merely read and put back on the shelf. Jan 02, Lisa rated it it was amazing I have to teach this text to my sophomores so I need to love it to teach it!

It is worth reading as it helps you understand a culture very different from ours. Oct 31, Jeannette Garcia rated it it was ok I had to read this for a class. It was really interesting to see how Krishna is portrayed as the "savior". I love learning about Asian religions and think that one should read the entire Gita if they want to understand anything about Hare Krishnas. Jul 17, Katherine rated it liked it Pretty interesting.

Some people have a problem with this translation saying it lacks poetry, but there is a strong underlying rhythm in the almost blank verse translation by Miller Nov 17, Carina rated it it was amazing I like the idea that we should act without attachment, because that would make it impossible to carry emotional baggage. Ahh this book is so refreshing and I feel nourished just reading it.
