Themes for Discussion

Chapter 8 – The Way to the Imperishable Brahman  – Verses 1 to 5

  • Last Moments – Mind on the Divine: All religions believe that our state of mind, that what thoughts predominate in our final moments, is determined by what is most important to us in life. A mind attuned to the Divine will naturally seek It during the great transition to another state beyond the body. A profound influence on the next step in our journey.
  • ‘Shadow of Life & Death’: In a beautiful and poetic way, the ancient Rig Veda declares that the Ultimate Reality is ‘That Light whose shadow is life and death.’ Whilst immersed in our experience and study of life, we must also reflect on death.
  • Time: Ruler of All: Time rules everything. Even the sun, the moon and stars will succumb to Time – The All Destroyer. Accept it, face it – but not with fear, but open-eyed. Remember, all things must pass and treasure every moment that we have.

Join the discussion led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana.

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.
