Topics for Discussion: 

Chapter 8 – The Way to the Imperishable Brahman  – Verses 17 – 18: 

  • Time is Relative: On this earth, we live in ‘terrestrial time’; time is measured on the scale of our rotating earth and its revolution around the sun. But our lives are just a fleeting second in the realm of the star-studded galaxies of space. This is the cosmic scale of Brahma’s (Hindu God of Creation) day and night.
  • Living in the Light of Truth: Daydreaming and the fantasy worlds of popular culture are welcome retreats from the hard realities of everyday life, but everyday life’s also a make-believe world of relative reality saturated with our dreams, obsessions and superstitions. The ancient philosophers implore us to ‘understand the whole truth about life’ and make the best of our brief time here.
  • Unity in Apparent Diversity: Just when humanity’s been linking up in unprecedented ways, just as our delving into sub-atomic and cosmic worlds has revealed an interconnectedness of all things, fractures are rising. Increasing knowledge hasn’t been matched by increasing wisdom. The challenge is for humanity to evolve.

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.
