Chanted Bhagavad Gita, and Sanskrit text

I read Bhagavad Gita for the first time in year 2003, from Eknath Easwaran's translations abridged version. This was a very nice, simple, and concise book. However I intend to go into depths of it - meaning, interpretation, recitation.

At the same time I have always seriously intended to learn Sanskrit. But, not made a start yet.

It seems, listening to chanted Gita (in mp3 format), along with Sanskrit text will keep me moving to get these two goals.

Additionally, this Sanskrit dictionary too will be indispensable.
