A New Look at the Uddhava Gita The Uddhava Gita is Lord Krishna's most esoteric teaching, and is an important document in Hindu literature. In contrast to its cousin text, the Bhagavad Gita, there exist only five or six English translations of the Uddhava Gita, most of which are severely outdated and written in poor English with archaic commentaries. Happily, this new translation remedies the situation. Krishna's Other Song: A New Look at the Uddhava Gita examines the entire Uddhava Gita in relation to other Hindu scriptures, especially the Bhagavad Gita, and shares its teachings in light of interreligious understanding and nonsectarian spirituality. A foreword written by prominent Hinduism scholar Charles S. J. White joins the author's own introduction to lay out the Uddhava Gita's background, philosophical dimensions, and religious significance. This edition does not include the original Sanskrit, nor does it labor to translate each word verbatim. Rather, it gives the reader all 1,030 verses in plain English, offering accessible commentary that allows the meaning and relevance of the Uddhava Gita to unfold to one and all.
