Inhaltsangabe: This presentation of the Srimad-Bhagavad-Gita, the universally known scriptural classic of Hindu literature, embodies Swami Premananda's English translation of the Sanskrit text together with his own original parallel spiritual text. In the translation he adheres strictly and faithfully to the form and meaning of the original. The rhythm and dignity of the flow of the dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna have been meticulously preserved throughout, and the entire content has been retained intact. Many translations of this book have appeared in English during the last three-quarters of a century, ranging from the superb poetical rendition of Sir Edwin Arnold and other scholarly presentations, to a number of somewhat freer or paraphrased editions. Examination of the various texts serves to demonstrate the truly universal nature of this sublime scripture, which makes it as applicable in the life of man today as it was thousands of years ago. In many commentaries upon the basic truths of this great book, intimations are found of the mystic and esoteric meaning which permeates the whole of the ethical and philosophical discourse. But no author has ever before undertaken to present, in any language, the complete verse-by-verse spiritual text which clearly reveals its inner esoteric significance, as has been done in the present work under the title, "The Revelation of the Supreme Self."
Über den Autor: Swami Premananda (1903-1995) Swami Premananda, born in 1903, was a native of India. He received his academic education and religious training in his native land, graduating from the University of Calcutta where he majored in philosophy, oriental languages and comparative religion. He was a disciple of Swami Yogananda Paramhansa. Swamiji came to the United States in 1928 and established the Self-Revelation Church of Absolute Monism in Washington, D.C. During his almost 70 years of religious service in Washington he conducted weekly radio broadcasts and classes in philosophy and yoga, lecturing at universities, before Lions and Rotary Clubs and civic and educational groups, and in Christian Churches of practically all denominations. In constant demand as a speaker, he also traveled extensively throughout this country, lecturing in various principal cities, including Boston, Lansing, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and others. He was a 33° Mason, Knight Commander of the Court of Honor, Shriner of the Almas Temple, Wise Master of the Evangelist Chapter of Knights Rose Croix (1948-1949) and a proficient ritualist in higher Masonic degrees, a Knight Templar, member of the Royal Order of Scotland, and Chaplain of Benjamin B. French Lodge No. 15, of Washington, D.C. He is the only Swami ever to receive such distinction from any Masonic body. Swami founded the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Foundation, Incorporated, in Washington, D.C. (1959), and inaugurated its Center (1976) which is dedicated to emulating the philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi and the spiritual heritage of India which nourished him. Swami translated 15 Upanishads, the Bhagavad-Gita and Dhammapada scriptures and was the author of many other books on Vedic philosophy.
