My studies in India also 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.  The 32 Śloka in the Gītārtha Saṃgraha 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.

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.

The Gītārtha Saṃgraha is also now going online. 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.

A Translation and word by word workbook for this text is also offered as part of the study guides within the Online 121 Bhagavd Gītā Modular eStudy Programme.
