Jayadeva's dramatic lyrical poem "Gitagovinda" is one of the most important works in Indian literature and a source of religious inspiration in both medieval and contemporary Vaishnavism. Revealing an intense earthly passion to express the complexities of divine and human love, its songs are an important part of Indian devotional music and literature.

The twentith anniversary edition of the renowned translation by noted scholar Barbara Stoler MIller brings this classic to a new generation of readers and offers fresh insights for those familiar with the text.

This Gitagovinda will be the English standard for our generation. ASIA Bulletin Excellent...[This translation] beautifully renders the Sanskrit lyric into poetic English and captures the rich imagery and musical rythms of Jayadeva's language. Choice
