Śrī Yāmuna was the grandson of the 9th century sage Śrī Nāthamuni and a forebear of T Krishnamacharya. His 32 verse 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 also included a further two years word by word studies 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 verses offer an important commentary on the Bhagavad Gītā and very succinctly summarises each of its eighteen chapters into eighteen verses. It is seen as one of the most elegant and succinct commentaries available.
The Gītārtha Saṃgraha is now going online with selected words being linked to the Yoga Sūtra Online, the Sāṃkhya Kārikā Online and the Bhagavad Gītā Online database and an overview commentary of each verse 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 Saṃskṛta 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 are offered as part of the study guides within Bhagavad Gītā Study Modules Workshops and Courses or Online Art of Gītā Scripture Module Programme from my word by word studies over two years on this particular text, in addition to four years on the Bhagavad Gītā, in my lessons with TKV Desikachar, with notes from Desikachar’s study with his teacher T Krishnamacharya.
