The Astounding Bhagavad-gita As It Is: Collector’s Edition


This deluxe Bhagavad-gita As It Is with limited printed copies is meant to enrich those libraries who hunt for treasures.

A brand new deluxe limited edition of Srila Prabhupada’s Bhagavad-gita As It Is promises to be the kind of collector’s item that is treasured as a family heirloom for generations.

Truly a feast for the eyes, the new book comes from the Mediterranean division of the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust, which previously brought us luxury coffee table books like Krishna Art, Darshan, Art of Transcendence, and Prabhupada.

Indeed, this Deity-like incarnation of Sri Krishna’s words to Arjuna is like nothing the BBT has ever produced before. A large format book, it measures 44cm x 31cm (17.3 x 12.2 in), weighs 17kgs (37.5 lbs.), and runs to 920 pages.

The full text, with Sanskrit devanagari, transliteration, translation and Srila Prabhupada’s purports, is printed on 150 gram Garda-Pat ivory paper produced in Verona, Italy at Fedrigoni, an ancient paper mill established in 1888. With high-quality artistic binding hand-made in Italy, the deluxe Bhagavad-gita includes twenty-six large size photographic reproductions of beautiful paintings by renowned ISKCON artists on single and double pages.

Italian artist Vaijayanti Dasi (Valentina Rainoldi) spent countless hours designing the delicate and elegant hand-painted borders for each page meticulously and with love and devotion. They depict the four auspicious symbols of Vishnu: the conch, lotus, club and disc.

Completing its pedigree, the book was printed by Mauro Loce, who works for some of the most famous publishing houses in the world, and who was very excited to work on the Bhagavad-gita. Queen Elizabeth prints books with him as individual gifts for her close associates, with their special family crest and embroidery on them.

The value of this book will increase manifold as the time goes by.
