The Bhagavad Gītā is one of the treasures of world culture. Sacred in India, and beloved to hundreds of millions throughout the centuries and around the world, it is the best-known of all Sanskrit works in the West.

This book presents the first comprehensive and accessible concordance of the Bhagavad Gītā. The concordance lists every word of the original, noting all its locations and instances within the text, along with related words. It is accompanied by various supportive references, including Sanskrit and English indexes. The concordance can be linked with any translation, giving readers in-depth access to the Sanskrit text.

It allows readers to gain a greater reach into the Bhagavad Gītā and achieve a deeper understanding of its ideas, facilitating nuanced analyses of the text and its language. It is an essential reference for scholars, teachers, students, and other readers interested in India's spiritual classics.
