The Bhagavad Gita is undoubtedly the best philosophy of life there can ever be. Please don't look at it as a manual of Hinduism, rather the gita always empowers you by making u believe in yourself than any thing else.
There haev been many translations by many people, the famous and the most sought after being =
"God Talks With Ajuna: The Bhagavad Gita a New translation and Meaning" By sri Paramhansa Yogananda ;This edition is the most modern and scientific interpretation there ever is.
Even "the holy Geeta" by Chinmayananda is a wonderful book for the youth .
I would sincerely Recommend You to read this or any version of it, it will change your life, and transform you totally.
the transforation guarenteed by gita is permanent. It is not what You would experience by reading countless western self-help books.
By far the Gita is the BEST self-help book there ever was n there ever will be.
P.S: Dont ever judge the Gita to be a manual of Hinduism. please this might be the gravest mistake u might ever make. It has hardly anything to do with religion.
Unlike any other spiritual text which rely on making you repent for your "sins". The Gita professes the theory of happiness no matter what u did in your life.
If you have ever been searching for happiness .... the Gita is the final n best advice one can give you
