THEMES FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Be a Yogi: If you ask what Śrī Kṛṣṇa is going to advise you, I will say this: He is whispering in your ear, and in everybody’s ear, ‘Be a yogī, be a yogī; that is your birthright. You are realizing what is already there, merely hidden within you. Spirituality is your birthright. Try to realize your birthright.’
  • Every Work is Sacred: Even your everyday job is a path of Yoga. Do it well, help others, bring happiness to others and create peace of mind for yourself, become stronger and steadier.
  • A Generous Attitude: A competitive attitude can infiltrate our spiritual life too. If we see others progressing while we flounder, wish them well, wish all well, at work, in the family, don’t resent it and don’t put yourself down seeing others prosper. Be happy for all.

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.
