The Anugita is part of the Ashvamedhika Parva a book of the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. It contains Krishna's conversation with Arjuna when Krishna decided to return to Dwaraka after restoring to the Pandavas, their kingdom. The main topics discussed are transmigration of souls, means of attaining liberation, description of gunas and ashramas, dharma, and the effects of tapas or austerity. this was told to arjuna when he expressed his desire to hear Bhagavad gita once again.

Hare Krishna,

Srila Prabhupada did not specifically recommed to read Anugita. On the other hand, SP always stressed to fully study the Bhagavad-gita, which is the essence of all the Vedic literatures and is also part of Mahabharata.
