Gītārtha Saṃgraha Title

Gītārtha Saṃgraha

of Śrī Yāmunācārya

Commentaries and Reflections

Commentary by Paul Harvey:

Śrī Yāmuna was the grandson of the 9th century sage Śrī Nāthamuni and a forebear of T Krishnamacharya.  His 32 verse commentary on the Bhagavad Gītā is called the Gītārtha Saṃgraha. It is seen as one of the most elegant and succinct available.

This text, as with many texts in the Indian Tradition of Transmission, was originally learnt through chanting as well as study and as such can also be downloaded in both visual and oral form to aid heart level learning.

According to Yamuna (the grandson of Nathamuni and forebear of Krishnamacharya) in his commentary to the Bhagavad Gītā, the Gītārtha Saṃgraha, this famous Hindu text should be considered as having three sections or hexads of six chapters each.
