UPCOMING NEWS Release:
Kavindra Rishi/ Jeffrey Armstrong will soon release a new translation of the Bhagavad-Gita that has been in progress for the past seven years. The biggest challenge to translating Sanskrit concepts into English has not been addressed by previous translators of the Gita, namely, the English language was constructed in the historical context of the Christian religion. Therefore most of the English words that are used to convey ideas about Divine Reality are influenced by and present a Christian world-view. Words like God, sin, lord, many gods, soul, heaven and hell etc. are constructs of the Christian religion that do not correctly convey Vedic concepts. They are not synonyms for the Sanskrit words whose meanings are being presented in the Bhagavad Gita.
In this new translation, Kavindra Rishi solves these cultural and linguistic translation problems and thereby takes the Gita to a much higher and more refined level of clarity. In addition, his rendering of the text is without lengthy or sectarian commentaries. The Gita’s timeless message has been carefully translated for all to consider, irrespective of their religion, lineage or intellectual background. This is an important step for clarifying the universal Sanatana Dharma meanings of the Gita and to making the message of its verses accessible and understandable to all, in clear modern English.
** Jeffrey will be running a weekend seminar on the Bhagavad Gita in Vancouver Jan 11 -12. Please check the event schedule if you wish to attend. “The Bhagavad Gita Comes Alive” call 1-866-872-6224 to register.
