Continuing Study of Chapter 6, The Yoga of Meditation – Verses 20 – 23

THEMES FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Buddhi – Pure Reason: When we sit for meditation we attempt to temporarily “say goodbye to the sensory system.” We’re on an inward journey. Aided by the piercing focus of ‘pure reason,’ we can reach the heart of our being.
  • Beyond Dogma & Creed: Yoga transcends the ethnical dimension of religion. It’s a well-trodden and rigorous path, with a scientific spirit of enquiry and experience, leading us to ever greater strength and peace

Bhagavad Gita:

We’re exploring a spiritual classic that’s enriched cultures throughout Asia over the centuries and inspired leading figures in modern times from Mohandas Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Carl Jung, and Aldous Huxley to astronaut Sunita Williams who took a copy of the Bhagavad Gita to the international space station.

We’re dipping into Swami Ranganathananda’s 3 volume commentary: Universal Message of the Bhagavad Gita. The late President of the Ramakrishna Order, the Swami was a world thinker and cultural ambassador for India, sponsored by the Government to travel to over 50 countries around the world giving lectures.
