Bhagavad Gita Lectures by Swami Paramarthananda in pdf

Postby Vinay » Sat Jul 25, 2015 7:38 pm

This is a transcription of Swami Paramarthananda's lectures on Bhagavad Gita given in Chennai, India. It's a very comprehensive ebook with 3000+ pages. The person who transcribed it said that it took him 3 years of full time work to complete it.

Thanks, Vinay. This is great. I was able to download it easily from the link you gave (it did not ask for registration).
Regards the transcription: Do you know if Swamiji's lectures were in English and those were transcribed or whether he spoke in Tamil and they were translated into English?
Thanks!

Hi Mira,

As far as I know Swami Paramarthananda always gives his Vedanta lectures in English. Though he uses Tamil a bit within his lectures. Even in this pdf you will find some Tamil script where he uses Tamil.

Thanks, Vinay. That's great to know that the original lectures were in English--which means that nothing can be 'lost in translation'. I'm really enjoying reading it. I think the BG is my favorite book of all time. Thanks again, Mira.

Hi Vinay,

Do you know of any other English transcriptions available online of Swami Paramarthananda's talks. As you may know I have transcribed and written his Panchadasi talks in a new book, Inquiry into Existence. I would like to make more of his talks available on ShiningWorld.
