Lessons from Bhagavad Gita

The five arguments of Krishna to make Arjuna go back to his duty on the battlefield and the five teachings to all humanity, constitute the 18 chapters of the Bhagavad-Gita. It turns out to be a symbiosis of a lesson on the Absolute and the science of a yogic living towards the utmost spiritual purpose of reaching the Supreme. Almost every idea for the proper purposeful living of life along with the right purpose for the after-life can be found in this unique dialogue between Man and God on the war-field!

The classes will be broadcast live on on Facebook group GITA CLASS PURVA 2020.
