Favorites 6/20: Bhagavad Gita translated by Stephen Mitchell

  Bhagavad Gita: A New Translation

Bhagavad-Gita. I recently reviewed a new translation that I’d read of this, so I won’t say too much more. I’m not including classics on this list (well, before Moby Dick), so I omit a lot of religious or classical writing, but this is one exception. I make in this exception in part because I only read it first as an adult and because I’ve read different translations now. It still resonates.
