Bhagavad Gita Fortnightly Class/ Discussion – 4 November 2022

Bhagavad Gita Discussion

Friday 4 November, 7.00 – 8.45 pm

Led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana

Join us for Silent Meditation at Vedanta Hall, 15 Liverpool Road, Croydon, from 7 pm
or via Zoom from 7.30 pm:

Themes for Discussion: 

  • Three Types of Strength: Physical strength is the most ordinary form of strength and hard to do without, but it’s our second, subtler form of strength that distinguishes us from other life forms: the ability to think and to reason. Beyond those two lies the third source of strength of infinite capacity and potential – the power of the soul.
  • Spirituality – Not a ‘Weekly Affair’: The statically pious, religious approach plays a basic role in appealing to humanity’s better nature, but spirituality brings steady transformation and peace through awakening ‘one’s awareness of one’s own true nature as a spark of the Divine.’
  • Supreme Symbol Om: ‘Om’ is ‘the supreme symbol of the Divine,’ and God in the form of sound. Mystically-minded Christians could relate to this: ‘In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, the Word was God, and the Word became flesh’, became incarnated as the Divine.

Bhagavad Gita:
Join our exploration of 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.
