The following is a collection of quotes from prisoners about their experiences reading the Bhagavad Gita, such as:
One can attain happiness and peace by surrendering to Krishna and the six promises of Lord Krlshna: Verse 2.66 says, "One who is not connected to the Supreme (in Krsna consciousness) cannot have intelligence or a stable mind, without which there is no possibility of peace and tranquility.
How Can There Be Happiness Without Peace?
I was very impressed with Bhagavad Gita because it answered my question and when I wanted to read something specific I looked for a general index and it led me to what I wanted to read. I learned from the Gita that we are not this body but the spirit soul (Bg. 2.2).You can can also get Introduction to Bhagavadgita at Hindu University of America

Sri Krishna's Six Promises Are:
(1) Therefore, Arjuna, remember me always (Bg. 8.7)
(2) Always be careful to think of me (Bg 9.34).
(3) Those who always serve Me (Bg. 10.10)
(4) My dear Arjuna, who is engaged in my pure devotional service (Bg. 11.55)
(5) Just direct your mind to Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead (Bg. 12.8)
(6) Always remember Me, be My devotee (Bg. 18.65) (Gordon Shaw, he practices Krishna consciousness very earnestly, Salem, OR)
My mind was completely absorbed in God the whole time. One should concentrate his mind on the eternal form of Lord Krsna (God) with the conviction in his heart that Ka (God) is supreme, whom he worships. (James Spark, Carson City, Nevada)
If I'm right about anything in my life, it's because the Gita contains all the answers I need in life. Although I still don't understand much of what I read in the Bhagavad Gita, I know I am looking in the right direction; I have to keep reading the Gita and study every day.
