  • Bhagavad-Gītā As It Is (A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada)

As I've been wanting to own a copy of the Bhagavad Gita and happened across this copy at a thrift store, I purchased it spur-of-the-moment without reading any reviews beforehand. But apparently it's a self-aggrandizing, sectarian translation which fails to adequately convey the message of the original text; I'd rather not acquaint myself with one of Hinduism's greatest scriptures through such a biased lens.

It's taken me long enough, but finally got round to putting this together. I've borrowed your formatting, Duragizer, and adjusted accordingly.

This is the bulk, I have some lent out and some strewn around the house that I may have forgotten. I have a big pile on loan that I haven't included, and I have some gimmicky books I've received over Christmas and stuff like that. Recipe books aren't included either.

For those that like that sort of thing, here are a few pics of some of the more organised parts of my collection:

^^^ Yes. By me :p

Nah, it was by my father. He was talking about how people were complaining about The Last Jedi not being scientifically accurate, and we talked about how Star Wars has never really cared about science. I brought up that with all the light speed space travel, none of the characters should be the same age as eachother. He told me that there was a book like that, and explained The Forever War.
