Each Saturday evening in the East Village of New York City, Atma-Nivedana and Subhangada will teach all members who attend how to engage in kirtan-meditation, which is the process of hearing and chanting ancient, sanskrit mantras to invoke God's divine mercy and presence. They will all give a discourse on Bhagavad Gita As It Is. Topics that will be considered include karma, reincarnation, time, the material energy, the soul, and the Supreme Soul, and the relationship between the material energy, the soul, and the Supreme Soul. This meetup is intended for everyone who is interested without discrimination and regardless of one's familiarity with the subject matter.
Atma-Nivedana ("Atma") is an initiated priest who since 1990 has been studying, teaching, and living according to the teachings of the Bhagavad-Gita as taught and followed by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the Founder-Acarya of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. After living in a monastic setting for eight years, Atma resumed his undergraduate education at Brown University, where he hosted weekly programs that focused on kirtan and Bhagavad Gita. He then enrolled at the University of Chicago Law School from which he graduated in 2004. Currently, Atma spends his weekdays as a securities fraud prosecutor while his primary aim is to imbibe in his own life the devotional teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and to share the same with others as a humble offering to God.
Subhangada ("Subhie") has been living her life according to the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita since 1991 and is also an initiated priest. Subhie also lived in a monastic setting until 2005. From 1991 to 2005, Subhie taught Bhagavad Gita in Croatia, Serbia, Greece, Germany, and United Kingdom. Subhie spent several years studying Vedic knowledge in India, primarily in the holy town, Vrindavana. After 2005, Subhie resumed her undergraduate education at the University of London, and then locally at Queens College, after she moved to New York and married Atma. Subhie is currently completing her Master's degree in teaching at Queens College.
