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

Continuing Study of Chapter 6, The Yoga of Meditation – Verses 10 – 15

THEMES FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Aloneness: Meditation transforms loneliness to ‘aloneness.’ At a deeper level of our being, we are never alone but connected, intertwined with the whole of creation.
  • The Science of Yoga: Blind belief is not required – indeed discouraged – in the yogic path. Following the well-trodden path of countless sages, we can experiment, confirm and experience the profound states of consciousness that enlightened them.
  • Fearlessness and Fullness: Through even a little meditation and yoga, we get glimpses of how to transcend the relative world, filling us with hope, courage, and peace.

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.
