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
