"The Gita is one of the clearest and most comprehensive
summaries of spiritual thought ever to have been made.
Hence its enduring value, not only for Indians,
but for all mankind."
-- Aldous Huxley
"The most beautiful,
perhaps the only true
philosophical song existing
in any known tongue ....
perhaps the deepest and loftiest
thing the world has to show."
-- Wilhelm von Humboldt
"In the morning I bathe my intellect
in the stupendous and cosmogonical
philosophy of the Bhagavad-gita,
in comparison to which
our modern world and its literature
seem puny and trivial."
"What extracts from the Vedas I have read
fall on me like the light of a higher and purer luminary,
which describes a loftier course through purer stratum.
It rises on me like the full moon after the stars have come out,
wading through some far stratum in the sky."
-- Henry David Thoreau
the most wonderful thing
to happen to my life,
as though God Himself
came and told me exactly,
everything I needed to know,
in The Bhagavad-gita As It Is.
