    Bhagavadgita er ikke blot en af de mest berømte tekster inden for hinduismen, men også en af verdenslitteraturens berømte klassikere. Gennem en dialog mellem krigshelten Arjuna og hans vognstyrer Krishna får vi indsigt i en række filosofiske, teologiske og etiske synspunkter, der belyser aspekter af en grundlæggende forståelsesramme for hinduismen på både affattelsestidspunktet og i nutiden. I sammenhæng med de senere års stigende interesse og nysgerrighed i den vestlige verden for andre religioner, der blandt andet har afspejlet sig i nye bogudgivelser og artikler, forelægges hermed en ny dansk oversættelse af Bhagavadgita. Bogen er forsynet med en introduktion, et indledende essay, noter til oversættelsen og en fortegnelse over relevant litteratur.De tre oversættere har bestræbt sig på at fremlægge et arbejde, der kan være af interesse for en forholdsvis bred læserkreds. Hermed tænkes der på såvel fagfolk som på den alment interesserede læser.Bogen vil kunne inddrages i såvel universiteternes som i gymnasieskolernes undervisning. Den vil også være af interesse for enhver, der ønsker at orientere sig i én af de hovedreligioner, som man støder på i vor multikulturelle samtid.Det fremgår af DBC’s lektørudtalelse (Ellen Lind Jensen), at bogens målgruppe er indologer – professionelle samt ihærdige amatører.Oversættelsen er foretaget af tre personer, hvoraf de to har akademisk baggrund i indisk filologi og sanskrit, medens den tredje har andre eksamener, men har suppleret med studiet i sanskrit ved Aarhus Universitet.Der redegøres i forordet for arbejdsmetoden, og der gives i indledende afsnit noget baggrund til forståelse af Gita’en. Digtet er suppleret med en del forklarende noter.Lektøren skriver, at hun ikke har forudsætninger for at bedømme kvaliteten af oversættelsen, men kun grund til at tro, at der er tale om dygtigt og sobert arbejde. Værket betegnes som krævende læsning.Bogen er af Aarhus Universitet godkendt som peer reviewed videnskabelig publikation.

    Tusindvis af mennesker strømmer til Brøndby Hallen, hver gang Amma eller ”Moder” er på besøg. De kommer for at få et helende kram af den verdenskendte indiske guru og lade sig inspirere af hendes særlige form for hinduisme, som ikke er den samme, som fx de srilankansk-tamilske hinduer udøver i Abirami-templet lidt uden for Herning. Til daglig holdes der puja eller gudstjeneste i ni meget forskellige hindutempler rundtomkring i Danmark, mens yogadyrkere, Hare Krishna-munke, Amma-tilhængere og alle dem, der bare tror på karma, på hver deres måde indoptager dele af den hinduistiske kultur og religiøse tradition.Hinduisme er i dag fuldt integreret i Danmark. Men religionshistorisk er hinduisme svær at klassificere, og derfor vælges den ofte fra i undervisningen. Det er synd, for hinduisme kan ikke blot udfordre vores forståelse af religion, den udgør også et feltlaboratorium, der kan gøre os klogere på det kulturmøde og de identiteter, traditioner og forandringer, både gamle og unge står overfor i en ”glokal” verden.Hinduisme i Danmark og i verden har fokus på det nære, men tager afsæt i det fjerne. For at forstå traditionen, og hvordan den forandrer sig over tid og i nye kontekster, retter bogen først blikket mod hinduismens kulturelle og religiøse rødder og dens klassiske tekster og dernæst mod hinduismen i Danmark i dag.
