INTRODUCTION TO GÉTOPANIÑAD
This short course into the wisdom of the great Bhagavad Gita is based on a devotional essay by one of the world’s greatest teachers of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita in recent times, Om Visnupada ParahamsaParivrajakacarya Astottara-Sata His Divine Grace Sri Srimad A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.Under the order of his spiritual master, Srila Prabhupada dedicated his life to preaching the ancientmessage of Lord Sri Krishna in the English language, in accordance with the teachings of the previousacaryas who had continued the teachings without any change, handed down from Lord KrishnaHimself through an unbroken chain of self-realized spiritual masters.Up till the time of Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad Gita As It Is being published in the western world, theonly versions of the Gita known in English then, were not strictly authoritative, according to the Gitaitself. Although there were more than 700 English versions of the Gita available in America alone priorto 1967, the Bhagavad Gita As It Is has swept the scholars and academic institutions of the world as themost popular and most commonly recommended course material.Since that time, we are glad to note than many literatures of the 4 sampradayas (schools of thought firsttaught by Lord Krishna Himself and handed down through disciplic succession) have become availablein the English language. More than 400 universities in the western world use Bhagavad Gita As It Is asa standard text book. This is what the Amazon.com review of the book says:It is easy to see why Swami Bhaktivedanta's commentary on the Gita is so popular in India - thatis because it is
totally authentic
and very much in tune with the commentaries of all the mainpreceptors of Vedic traditions like Ramanujacarya, Madhvacarya, Nimbarkacarya, and VisnuSwami. His translation of the Gita is actually accepted by other Vedic disciplic successions suchas the Sri, Madhva, Vallabha and Nimbarka Sampradayas as being completely in agreement withVedic thought. This quote from one of the Madhva Acarya's in Udipi mentions thatPrabhupada's Gita is sold in front of their main shrine. This is a very great compliment:"...Sri Chaitanya Sampradaya is a branch of Madhwa philosophy. There are historic proofs tosubstantiate this fact. The sadhana achieved by Sri A. C. Prabhupada, Acharya of "ChaitanyaSampradaya" is to be welcomed by all Vaishnavites. It is due to him people all over the worldhave learned about Lord Krishna. This work should have been accomplished by Madhwafollowers. But Prabhupada has served the world in propagating this cult. Even in the westernworld he has attracted a large number of devotees of Lord Krishna, through his discourse on"Bhagavat Geeta." The book "Bhagavat Geeta" of Sri Prabhupada is allowed to be sold in front of Krishna Mandira at Udupi. This fact is known to all eight mutts of Udupi, as well as all devoteesof Udupi Kshetra..."Sri Laksmivara Tirtha SwamiSri Shiroor Mutt, Udupi Jadadguru Sri Sri Madhwacharya PeethanUdupi, South Candra, Karnataka, India

Credit should be given where it is due, so since I am not very qualified to praise him, hereare a selected few of the hundreds of absolutely glowing reviews that scholars have madeof his writings. – Ed.
Bhagavad Gita As It Is is “…a definitive English edition of Bhagavad-gitä. By bringing usa new and living interpretation of the text already known to many, A. C. BhaktivedantaSwami Prabhupäda has increased our own understanding manyfold.”Professor Edward C. DimmockHead, Department of East Asian StudiesUniversity of Chicago, USA“Though I have little knowledge of Sanskrit, but as a student of literature I have beenimpressed by the meticulous care and clarity with which each mantra of the Gita hasbeen presented... It could not only universalize the teachings of the Vedäntas but also itcould very much help in bringing about the much needed integration of the multilingualhumanity.’ ”N. H. HashmiHead Professor and Head of the Department of UrduLucknow University, U. P. India“Message: The ancient roots of traditional Indian life reach farther into the distant pastthan any other country on earth. What thousands of years ago culminated in educationincluded the development in the student of all good qualities. In other words the pupilwas ignited with a desire to learn and develop himself rather than strive for materialrewards. From out of the great ages the ancients, headed by Sri Vyäsadeva, have left usthe timeless treatise of Srimad-Bhägavatam, the basis of all education.Later the saint Krishnadäsa Kaviräja, in commenting upon the life of the greatMahäprabhu Sri Caitanya, brought to the highest level of understanding these principlesin his immortal Indian classic, Caitanya-caritämrita. It is good fortune of the world thatthese two spiritual works presented as the
Encyclopedia of Indian Culture have beentranslated and commented upon in the style of a true scholar by
His Divine Grace A. C.Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupäda. Srila Prabhupäda, out of his obviously great desire toinject the world with his vast storehouse of learning, has translated precisely the richSanskrit and Bengali Slokas. He has given the transliteration, word-for-word meaning,purports, and each volume filled with full color illustrations by his disciples.
I thereforewholeheartedly recommend this encyclopedia of our culture and all other Bhaktivedanta BookTrust publications
to all educational institutions, schools, libraries, and collegesconcerned with the moral and cultural development of their students within theboundary of Maharastra and throughout the world.”Shrimati Patiba Patel, Minister of EducationGovernment State of Maharastra, Bombay, India
