Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Acarya Kesari Nitya Lila Pravista
Om Visnupada Astottara Sata
Bhakti Prajnana Kesava Gosvami Maharaja
the best amongst the tenth generation
of descendants in the Bhagavata-Parampara
from Sri Krsna Caitanya Mahaprabhu,
and the founder of the Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti
and its branches throughout the world
Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti published its first edition of Srimad Bhagavad-gita on 6 September 1977, by the auspicious desire and blessings of my Sri Gurupada-padma, nitya-lila-pravista om visnupada astottara-Sata Sri Srimad Bhakti Prajnana KeSava Gosvami Maharaja. That edition included the Gita-bhusana commentary of the brilliant sun among vedanta-acaryas, Sri Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusanapada, as well as an elucidating translation entitled Vidvad-ranjana by nitya-lilapravista om visnupada Sri Srila Bhaktivinoda thakura. Following that, on 3 October 1990, Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti published an abridged pocket edition, consisting of only the Sanskrit verses and their Bengali translations.
Several editions of Srimad Bhagavad-gita were published under the editorship of jagad-guru nitya-lila-pravista om visnupada astottaraSata Sri Srimad Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Gosvami Prabhupada. Some included Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusanapada’s Gita-bhusana commentary, some Srila ViSvanatha Cakravarti thakura’s Sararthavarsini commentary, and some Srila Bhaktivinoda thakura’s translations entitled Vidvad-ranjana and Rasika-ranjana. Later, various editions were published in Bengali by different mathas, temples and missions in the line of Srila Prabhupada Sarasvati thakura. An Assamese edition was published in Tejapura, Assam, and some English editions were published in Calcutta and Tamil Nadu. A Hindi edition of Srimad Bhagavad-gita with the commentaries of Srila Cakravarti thakura or Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusanapada had not yet been made available. Consequently, the Hindi-speaking populace both in India and the whole world was bereft of such an edition of this jewel-like book.
It is for this reason that my Godbrother pujyapada Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja, the vice-president of Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti and general editor of its publications, is publishing this present edition of Srimad Bhagavad-gita with its Sanskrit verses, an anvaya (wordfor-word), verse translations and the Sarartha-varsini commentary of the great preceptor, Sri-gaudiya-vaisnava-acarya Sri Srila ViSvanatha Cakravarti thakura. He is also presenting a simple, comprehensible commentary known as Sarartha-varsini PrakaSika-våtti. Sri Gaudiya Vedanta Samiti will remain eternally grateful and indebted to him for this. By deeply studying this book, the virtuous, intelligent readers will certainly receive supreme benefit and bliss.

Srimad Bhagavad-gita is also known as Gitopanisad. It is the essence of all Vedic knowledge and the most significant Upanisad in Vedic literature. Those who constantly study this book with faith, under the shelter of the spiritual master, saintly persons and Vaisnavas will be able to ascertain its true import easily. As a result, they will transcend the ocean of material existence and attain transcendental devotion to the lotus feet of Sri Krsna. In this way, they will become eligible to attain pure love for Him. Of this there is not the slightest doubt.
The Seventh Gosvami of the sri Gaudiya Vaisnava sampradaya and the best among the followers of sri Rüpa Gosvami, srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, published in Bengali two editions of the Gita with two different elucidations on its translations, which are based on the import of sri Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura’s and sri Baladeva Vidyabhüsana’s commentaries. His explanations are fundamental and full of beautiful conclusions that follow the rupanuga conception and that are conducive to suddha-bhakti. The transcendental benefit bestowed upon mankind by these two great editions is indescribable. Through his elucidations, srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura establishes the eternality, universality and supremacy of bhakti, thereby bestowing the greatest benefit upon those journeying to the kingdom of suddha-bhakti.

This profound translation of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja is sure to inspire sincere students of bhakti in their practices. It is considered complimentary to the authoritative and popular Bhagavad-Gita As It Is by Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Svami Maharaja. This present edition contains the bhavanuvada of the Sarartha-varsini-tika (a shower of the essential meanings) of the illustrious Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, which was originally penned in Sanskrit. His commentary has been further illuminated by Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja's Sarartha-varsini Prakasika-vrtti, which guides the reader into profound aspects of the siddhanta. Consequently, the innermost intentions of the Gita are revealed to the modern audience. Some of the brilliant Rasika-ranjana commentaries by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, have been included within this Prakasika-vrtti.
