The Bhagavadgita, which means “The song of God”, is India’s most beloved scripture; the definitive text on Yoga which is both a “work of art and a deep statement of truth” (Swami Kriyananda). In just 700 verses, it explains every aspect of the spiritual path: action (karma), cognition (gyana), devotion (bhakti), and meditation (raja). From Mahatma Gandhi to Henry David Thoreau, from Ralph Waldo Emerson to Warren Hastings, from Swami Vivekananda to Robert Oppenheimer, countless people have drunk from the well of The Gita’s wisdom.
Like all true scripture, The Gita inspires, rather than informs; its meaning is intuited rather than understood. This is why in India, for thousands of years, The Gita has been studied in informal gatherings known as satsangs, where the deeper meaning of this great scripture is explored through discussion rather than instruction.
Join us for a deep dive into the timeless wisdom and practical spirituality of through this series of Satsang style gatherings.
Led by Murali Venkatrao.
