Śrī Yāmuna was the grandson of the 9th century sage Śrī Nāthamuni and a forebear of T Krishnamacharya. His 32 Śloka 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.
These studies included a two years word by word study of the Gītārtha Saṃgraha of Śrī Yāmunācārya. Śrī Yāmuna was the grandson of the 9th century sage Śrī Nāthamuni and a forebear of T Krishnamacharya. His 32 Śloka offer an important commentary on the Bhagavad Gītā and very succinctly summarises each of its eighteen chapters into eighteen Śloka. It is seen as one of the most elegant and succinct commentaries available.
The Gītārtha Saṃgraha is now going online with successive Śloka being linked to the Yoga Sūtra Online, the Sāṃkhya Kārikā Online and the Bhagavad Gītā Online database and an overview commentary of each Śloka of the Gītārtha Saṃgraha from my studies with TKV Desikachar is offered along with Romanised Sāṃskṛta and searchable cross references.
Here you will find a verse by verse interpretation of each Śloka, from Saṃskṛtā into English. These verses will now form the basis for expansion with commentaries, notes, cross references via the online Saṃskṛta glossary with word meaning and Yoga Sūtra and Bhagavad Gītā cross references.
A Translation and word by word workbook for this text is offered as part of the study guides within Bhagavad Gītā Live Small Group Study Module Workshops or Online Bhagavd Gītā Modular Programme from my word by word studies on this particular text, in addition to four years verse by studies on the Bhagavad Gītā, within my lessons with TKV Desikachar, with added notes from Desikachar’s study with his teacher T Krishnamacharya.
