Meditation on Sri Gita 
O Bhagavad-gita, sung by the Supreme Lord Himself, You are thebestower of the enlightenment of Arjuna. You have been interwovenwithin the scripture Mahabharata by Srila Vedavyasa, the writer of thePuranas. In eighteen chapters, You are the rain of ever-flowing nectar,and the almighty potency of the Supreme Lord which delivers thewhole material world of suffering. O Mother, I keep You in my heartforever.
Obeisances unto Srila Vyasadeva
O master of great, formidable intelligence, Srila Vyasadeva, whoseeyes resemble the long petals of a blooming lotus flower, and who lit
 
the lamp of knowledge which was filled with the oil of theMahabharata - I offer my respectful obeisances unto you.
Obeisances unto the Lord as the chariot-driver of Arjuna
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the Supreme Lord Sri Krsna,who fulfills all the desires of His surrendered devotees. He holds adriving-rod in one hand while the other is poised in the gesture of instruction, and He is the extractor of the nectar of the Gita.
The glory of the Gita
The crest-jewels of the Vedas, the Upanisads, are like a cow, and themilker of the cow is Lord Sri Krsna, the son of Nanda Maharaj.Arjuna is the calf, the nectar of the Gita is the milk, and the virtuousdevotees are the drinkers and enjoyers of that milk.
Obeisances unto Lord Sri Krsna
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krsna,who is the son of Vasudeva, the vanquisher of demons like Kamsa andCanura, the expander of the divine ecstasy of mother Devaki, theSupreme God of all gods, and the guru of the whole universe.
The battlefield represented as a river
The river, of which one bank is Bhisma and the other is Dronacarya;Jayadratha is the water, the sons of Gandhari are the blue lotus flower,and Salya is the crocodile; Krpa is the current, and Karna is theeverchanging rising and ebbing tide; Asvatthama, Vikarna andcompany are the fearful sharks, and Duryodhana is the whirlpool - SriKesava is the fisherman of such a river of battle, which was crossedover by the Pandava brothers.
The Mahabharata as a lotus flower
The words of Sri Krsna Dvaipayana Vyasadeva, the son of ParasaraMuni, are a pure lotus flower. The meaning of the Gita is the far-reaching fragrance of that lotus, and the various narrations are itsstamens. The revelations of harikatha, narrations about the SupremeLord, are the river. In this world, the pure devotees are the bees whoare constantly absorbed in drinking the nectar of the lotus flower. May
 
that Mahabharata lotus, which is the vanquisher of all evils in this ageof Kali, graciously bestow auspiciousness upon us.
Obeisances unto the Supreme Lord
I offer my respectful obeisances unto the Supreme Lord whose gloriesare praised with celestial prayers by Lord Brahma, Lord Varuna, LordIndra, Lord Rudra, and the Maruts, and whose glories are recited bythe knowers of the Sama-veda; whose glories are sung by all theVedas, along with their six subsidiary divisions and the Upanisads;who is seen within the hearts of the yogis absorbed in meditationaltrance, and whose infinite glories cannot be known, either by the godsor the demons. (Bhag. 12.13.1)Before reciting or studying the scriptures, one must offer respectfulobeisances unto the Lord's incarnations Nara-Narayana Rsi of Badarikasrama, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krsna, thegoddess of speech Saraswati, and the writer of the scriptures, SrilaVyasadeva.
Preface
The Srimad Bhagavad-gita is unique in its wide publication andextensive circulation. Along with the commentaries of former greatsaints as well as modern scholars, this classic appears in variouslanguages, both in India and other countries. The commentaries of thegreat Vaisnava acaryas such as Srimat Ramanuja, SrimatMadhvamuni, and Sri Sridhara Swamipada deserve special mention,while among the proponents of jnana-marga, or the scholastic path,the commentaries of Srimat Sankaracarya and Sri MadhusudanaSaraswati are prominent. The commentaries of Sriyuta BalaGangadhara Tilak and Sri Aurobindo favor the school of karma-yoga,or the path of action, and are also familiar to modern scholars.Furthermore, great thinkers of both Orient and Occident have ardentlysung the glories of Sri Gita, being inspired by the ideals of itsteaching. But fortunate persons of fine theistic intellect willexperience the acintya-bhedabheda-siddhanta, or axiom of inconceivable simultaneous oneness and difference illustriously
