Bhagavad Gita:

8 Thursdays May 26- July 14 7:00pm-9:00pm
exact dates: May 26, June 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14

Nayaswami Hriman presents an in-depth course on the most beloved text of India, which Swami Kriyananda called “the world’s greatest scripture.” TheBhagavad Gita contains timeless insights into right action, right attitude, meditation, yoga, and the underlying reality of creation.  The “Gita’s” connection to the practice of hatha yoga, while indirect, sheds a ray of light as to the deeper significance of asana practice and the states of consciousness towards which asanas lead.

Nayaswami Hriman McGilloway has been teaching the precepts of the Bhagavad Gita for many years for Ananda based on the commentaries by Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda. In this course we explore these themes taken from the stanzas of the Gita:

We will use as our text the (bound-to-be a classic) book, The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita Explained by Paramhansa Yogananda, written by Ananda’s founder, Swami Kriyananda.

The Bhagavad Gita class may be taken separately. Click here for details
