    45 commentaries on Bhagavad Gita

    The Bhagavad Gita has more than 45 commentaries. The commentary of Sankara is the most ancient of the existing ones. There were other commentaries older than his, to which he refers in his introduction, but they have not come to us.


    Gita has been translated into major languages of the world. The translations are not included in the following list. Some commentaries are not available in full.
