Theme: Yoga & Resilience

Chapter 6, The Yoga of Meditation – Verses 7 to 9

We are so controlled by external forces, by heat and cold, by pleasure and pain, by praise and blame. How to have greater mastery over them? How to prevent our ‘cerebral system’ from becoming ‘a slave to the sensory system’? Eternal questions that need addressing if we’re to progress on our path to greater, truer freedom.  Learn more in the discussion.

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

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.

Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna – Monthly Talk

Via Zoom:


Sunday 5 September, 11.00 am-12.30 pm


In this talk: We join Sri Ramakrishna, surrounded by devotees in his room at the Dakshineswar Temple, Kolkata, on Sunday, 24 February 1884. We hear a humourous story of the limitations of mere book-learning. Sri Ramakrishna describes his mystic state of Vijnana; seeing the presence of Supreme Reality in everything and everyone and how divinity permeates all, even the wicked.

Program: Talk by Pravrajika Gayatriprana Guided Meditation.


The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna:

The conversations between Sri Ramakrishna, the 19th-century mystic and promoter of interfaith understanding, and the brilliant, questioning minds of  Calcutta. In Sri Ramakrishna, they came face-to-face with a type of Spirituality and mystical states they had only read about. Translated from Bengali by Swami Nikhilananda with the literary help of Margaret Woodrow Wilson, daughter of President Woodrow Wilson and Joseph Campbell, foreword by Aldous Huxley.
