There have been literally hundreds of translations of the Bhagavad-gita published in English alone, which is evidence that the voices from ancient India are still speaking to us in modern times. "Bhagavad-gita: A Photographic Essay" is an artistic presentation of the key philosophical ideas of the Bhagavad-gita's eighteen chapters. The author, with the aid of 124 powerful photographic illustrations, highlights selected translations and commentary from the Bhagavad-gita as translated by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Her talents of writing and photography combine to give readers a clear understanding of the Gita's sublime message.
Visakha (Jean Papert Griesser) received an Associate of Applied Science degree with honors from Rochester Institute of Technology and shortly afterward published her first book, Photomacrography: Art and Techniques. She wrote numerous articles for Back to Godhead magazine and two books, Our Most Dear Friend, a Bhagavad-gita for children, and Bhagavad-gita: A Photographic Essay, a fully illustrated summary study of the Bhagavad-gita. Visakha recently completed another book, Harmony and the Bhagavad-gita: Lessons from a Life-Changing Move to the Wilderness.
