- The Bhagavad Gita
The Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Krishna and his closest devotee, the Yadava prince Arjuna, who played a crucial role in the war of the epic Mahabharata. The message of the Bhagavad Gita has not only profoundly influenced the Indian way of life for millennia, but also many of our great contemporary western minds. Ghandi, Dr. King, and Thoreau were all known to carry and reference the Gita often.
The Bhagavad Gita reveals how anyone can perform ordinary duties in the world and yet remain free from the consequences of one’s actions. It is not by inaction, not even by doing only the so called good deeds, that one attains liberation, but by doing deeds without the sense of doer-ship. Such an approach not only liberates human beings from the struggling and striving that characterizes our ego driven actions, but also greatly reduces our anxieties and frustrations thereby creating in us the permanent basis for a stable, peaceful, and contented life.
Wear comfortable clothing not only to sit, but also to participate in a gentle asana practice, while you listen to the story of The Bhagavad Gita.
