The Bhagvadgita is perhaps the greatest work of practical Indian philosophy. Among the various interpretations of the Gita, the one by Mahatma Gandhi holds a unique position. In his own words, his interpretation of the Gita is designed for the common man - who has little or no literary equipment, who has neither the time nor the desire to read the Gita in the original, and yet who stands in need of its support.
Gandhi interpreted the Bhagvadgita, which he regarded as a gospel of selfless action, over a period of nine months from February 24th to November 27th, 1926, at Satyagrah Ashraqm, Ahmedabad. The morning prayer meetings were followed by his discourses and discussions on the Bhagvadgita.
Mahatma Gandhi's interpretation is unique by virtue of the simple style and illustrations from practical life .. Makes an interesting reading.- Hindustan Times
