Finding Help In The Bhagavad-Gita As It Is

Actor, Will Smith, in this one minute video speaking about the Bhagavad-Gita.
Now, there are about 500 different versions with commentaries of different people who are not exactly free from the four defects of conditioned life. The original unchanged and unadulterated version is the Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, by his divine grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, which is available for purchase online or free to read on this link: https://www.vedabase.com/en/bg
In this other link, it features the former Prime Minister, David Cameron, visiting a bhakti yoga branch of meditation in Radlet, wherein he was garlanded.
In this last few minutes youtube link, someone from the Manor in Radlet, speaks about the David Cameron’s visit to the place, in which the very Bhagavad-Gita is featured at the end. The Bhagavad-Gita As It Is, is the text one would want to read, because it’s like an old ripened wine that has been carefully passed down from hand to hand, and therefore unchanged and unadulterated, unlike other versions.
The Manor in Radlet was donated in 1973 by George Harrison, one of the four Beatles, as the branch in Soho became too small. The one in Soho currently hosts a public vegetarian buffet style restaurant. Time to time, actor Russel Brand goes there. George Harrison had a close relationship with the founder (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada) of ISKCON (the international society for Krishna Consciousness) otherwise known as bhakti-yoga and the Beatles’ famous song ‘my sweet Lord’ may be a reminder of his affiliation to the culture.
This is upstairs the Soho branch in which actor Russel Brand is featured there:

 

The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Krishna, is speaking here in B.G 9 verse 25, https://www.vedabase.com/en/bg/9/25 as to where souls ends up in the perfection of their meditation. The maha mantra: Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare. A few beautiful renditions here sung by a female practitioner of bhakti yoga, composed in the eighties in Sweden.
