I think of all the various books of scripture I have read my favorite is The Bhagavad Gita. A couple years ago I purchased a really good translation by George Thompson . I haven't necessarily compared many different translations of this book, but of the 4 or 5 I have looked at, this one I find most impressive.

I don't necessarily believe this book to be inspired or sacred, but I find it enlightening.

I've read a few translations, including a line-by-line parallel translation with the Sanskrit alongside. I like what I see of Thompson, but the introductory stanzas are not the crucial ones. (the Gita covers matters which my erstwhile Guru taught as if he were Krishna himself).
