平均4.0 星 A Book For The Western Seeker 2012年11月9日
评论者 W.H. McDonald Jr. - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装
To translate the original Sanskrit spiritual text of the Bhagavad Gita into English is a huge undertaking by itself - but to do so by someone for whom English may not be his native language is ambitious. I think Lars Martin Fosse does succeed and goes beyond the translating of Sanskrit text into readable English. His efforts make this book perhaps, much more accessible to western seekers than other translations. It is not an interpretation like Paramahansa Yogananda's wonderful classic book "God Talks With Arjuna - The Bhagavad Gita" or like those related books from others. It makes no claims to be in that category; however, it's aim is a much more simple approach which proves to be very direct and honest to the text. It doesn't get too deep poetically or philosophically which makes following it easier for a quick study. It lays it out the text in English but doesn't try to paint it with the translator's own personal views or insights.

The over-all the efforts of the translator comes off as philosophically true to text and is helpful - setting the stage for the more serious western seekers to further explore on their own any deeper personal interpretations into this text - if they are inspired to do so. It should be pointed out that the introduction is very solid and well done. It is as a good of introduction to the story the Mahabbarata as I have seen for novice western seekers.

How to rate this book was difficult - as I do not know of any truly deserving FIVE STAR ratings for any translations of this book by anyone else expect the original writer's of text which is all in Sanskrit - so, having said that, I feel that Lars Fosse has done a fair and balanced presentation of this sacred text into English. It is worthy of any truth seeker's time to read.

There is a whole series of helpful translated books by Yoga Vidya and I recommend them all.

平均4.0 星 Straight Forward But Disappointing for a Lay Reader 2012年10月9日
评论者 Robert David STEELE Vivas - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装
This book's special niche is for those who want to read the book in Sanscrit and English at the same time.

Perhaps I have been spoiled by the excellence of The The Bhagavad Gita: A Walkthrough for Westerners that was recommended to me by Harrison Owen, himself the author of several books including Wave Rider: Leadership for High Performance in a Self-Organizing World. My review of the Gita for Westerners is a reflection of what I can get out of a book.

This one, while appreciated as a gift, and while also clearly a valuable contribution in terms of new twists on the English translation, is for me largely valuable for the ten page introduction.

I will say that the simplicity of the presentation (as in sparse sophistication demanding attention) focused my mind and I did draw out from this book the emphasis on non-attachment. In addition to the above two books, I would recommend The Zen Leader: 10 Ways to Go From Barely Managing to Leading Fearlessly, from which I drew the insight that I have been wasting time and energy trying to reform legacy systems that are too self-invested to every contemplate change, and that I should instead focus exclusively on "attracting the future" by being who I am, representing the constructive ideas that I do, and let others do with those ideas what they will.

Reading this book at a time when dark forces are conspiring to attack Iran and justify it with a variety of false flag attacks and the same kind of lies that led to the three trillion dollar war on Iraq, I try to FOCUS on the message in this book. Here is one example:

QUOTE (15): Know that this, on which all the world has been strung, is indestructible. No one can bring about the destruction of this imperishable being.

I have never been about rank or money, but I have had my ego involved in whether people, listen, learn, and do the right thing, and I see more value in the message -- do what you do for the right reasons, without expecting outcomes. The outcomes are for others to co-create by their own action.

QUOTE (21): You are only entitled to the action, never to its fruits. Do not let the fruits of action be your motive, but do not attach yourself to nonaction.

Bearing in mind that this book provides less than one percent of the content of the total Gita [the ten page introduction is certainly the highlight of the book for those of us that do not want to spend years studying these specific phrases], I confess to being a bit under-whelmed. For me, The Bhagavad Gita: A Walkthrough for Westerners is the one book to buy.

Other books I recommend to those seeking new spiritual balance include:
Your Spiritual IQ: Five Steps to Spiritual Growth
Integral Consciousness and the Future of Evolution
Empowering Public Wisdom: A Practical Vision of Citizen-Led Politics (Manifesto Series)
Society's Breakthrough!: Releasing Essential Wisdom and Virtue in All the People
Evolutionaries: Unlocking the Spiritual and Cultural Potential of Science's Greatest Idea
Conscious Evolution: Awakening Our Social Potential
平均5.0 星 The Original Beauty of the Gita 2011年7月16日
评论者 Asbestos - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装
In the broadest sense, The Bhagavad Gita--an integral text of Hinduism--is an epic exploration of man's questioning, discovery, and realization of his true nature, by the grace of a spiritual guide. We have here a translation from Lars Martin Fosse shedding new light on life's oldest questions.

Fosse's introduction is a great primer on the Gita's origins, significance, and translational challenges. The commentary is of perfect length: not so long that you'd reach for the fast-forward button, and not so short that you're left scratching your head later on.

While I can't read the (graciously included) Sanskrit, Fosse's translation gives a strong impression of honesty and accuracy. He achieves a fine balance between brevity and poeticism unmet by lesser attempts, all the while refraining from filtering the work through his own beliefs. The reader feels the original beauty of the Gita come remarkably close. A wonderful read.
