I've read a bit of Panoliji and maybe peeked into others, but I prefer Sw.
Gambhiranandaji, perhaps because I have read quite a lot of his
translations before i learnt Sanskrit. IMO, one would always like to see
some words over others in any translation, but for the most part, Swamiji
has used very good words. Further, he appears to be a purist to me, because
even if he had to add anything, be it from Anandagiritika, it is in the
footnotes and not mixed up with bhAShya.

Kind rgds,
