The Bhagavad Gita is ancient Indian scripture which explains with great clarity the nature of consciousness, the self, and the universe. Please join us as we learn from the Gita what is the nature of the soul, what is the purpose of the soul, and how to fully satisfy the soul in order to achieve permanent happiness. As this is a discussion group, we are reading the texts together as we meet and discussing at the same time. We try to create a relaxed and accepting atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable sharing their understanding and asking questions of the other members, and always have some vegetarian snacks and drinks to share.
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.
