Edwin Arnold con The Song of Krishna: The Illustrated Bhagavad Gita
The Song of Krishna: The Illustrated Bhagavad Gita is next in Abrams’ ongoing series of classic spiritual and philosophical texts.
As part of the Mahâbhârata, one of the two great Hindu epics, the Gita takes the form of a conversation between Krishna, the many-formed deity, advising Arjuna, his kinsman, as the pair go into battle against a rival clan. Krishna’s moral counsel is often referred to as a concise version of Hindu philosophy, as well as a more generalized guide to leading a principled life.
Indian paintings, sculptures, and textiles from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art have been carefully paired with Edwin Arnold's classic English verse translation to create this handsome volume, with a three-piece case, staining, and a ribbon.
