Fo sho......How familiar are you with the Gita? I had a Juan Mascaro background with it, which I liked, but thought lacked some key sanskrit temanology, so that when I went to read something like the Upanishads I was not able to relay and overlap so easily. Which is another reason I tracked this traslation down. It's simple enough and has a few bracketd synonyms for the Sanskit, which gives a more fair trans.

I'd like to know what you think of it when you get it, if you have previous opinions.
Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
