Bhagavad Gita discussion group

The Bhagavad Gita is knowledge of five basic truths and the relationship of each truth with another.

The Gita explains with great clarity the nature of consciousness, the "self" and the universe. This is the essence of wisdom and spirituality and Indian responses to questions posed by philosophers for centuries.

The translation of the Bhagavad Gita AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada has remained loyal to the essence of the words of Krishna and thus he has unlocked all the secrets of this ancient knowledge of the Gita and placed them before us as a great opportunity for the realization self and spiritual joy.

The Gita is a conversation between Krishna and his dear friend Arjuna. At the last moment before entering a battle between brothers and friends, the great warrior Arjuna begins to ask questions: Why should he fight? What is the meaning of life? Where are we going after death? In response, Krishna leads his friend out of perplexity and into spiritual enlightenment, and each of us are invited to walk in his footsteps.

    I am an exploring and thought this might be interesting. Even if I don't know much about it and don't necessarily subscribe to the religion, would it be worth coming to learn?

    Hi Joann, this is an interesting class because many of us are novices/explorers/beginners, and some are actual devotees - I would definitely recommend it if you are interested in learning more. Near as I can tell, and it's still too early for me to explain much, the Bagavad Gita is more about the nature of the soul, than religion. Interesting stuff! Tommy
