Description: Join us this Friday for an evening with Gopal Krishna Swami. He will unveil secrets of the Bhagavad Gita – ancient yoga text and share his realisations from over 40 years of spiritual experiences and travels to every continent of the globe. He guides and inspires students in several countries and continents like Russia, America, Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, etc.
A book of the Hindus or a mystery of the east, several myths surround this ancient text. Great mystics, thinkers and philosophers ranging from Gandhi to Emerson have derived great inspiration from it.
This book is a guided tour that helps you find answers to questions like : Is Karma the universal teacher, why do bad things happen to good people, the nature of consciousness, finding happiness in daily grind, does the world have a purpose and what is the art of love and relationships.
It talks of a highly advanced civilization that spread across the entire globe and of warriors who showed both prowess and wisdom. This ancient text was spoken in the middle of a battle field and at the heart of this text lies a conversation between Krishna and Arjuna through which Krishna imparts the most exquisite and detailed knowledge about the nature of Karma, Time, Material world, Reincarnation, soul and the supreme being…that’s the conversation we will explore every Friday evening accompanied with meditation, dinner and fun conversations.
For this course we will be using ‘Bhagvad Gita As it is’ by A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
