Bhagavad Gita Fortnightly Class/ Discussion: 6 May

Bhagavad Gita Discussion

6 May 2022 at Vedanta Hall, 15 Liverpool Road, Croydon

Group discussion led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana, a senior nun of Sri Sarada Math of the Ramakrishna Order.

Continuing Study of Chap 7, The Way of Knowledge & Realization – Verse 7

THEMES FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Invisible Attribute in All: In a beautifully poetic way, Sri Krishna describes how we’re all linked to the Divine Inner Self like ‘a row of pearls on a thread.’
  • The Supreme Poet: Poets are visionaries unveiling profound and imaginative perspectives on inner and outer worlds, penetrating deep into human experience. The Gita itself is a poetic song.
  • The Perennial Philosophy: The profound and ancient vision of the Vedic sages is ever fresh. Over the centuries, they dispensed with dogmas and creeds; all that was irrelevant and absurd. Only timeless truths about humanity and the universe survived, withstanding critical scrutiny even in today’s intensely rational-minded world.

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.
