The “Bhagavad Gita” is one of the great spiritual books of the world and a core source of Yoga Philosophy. In essence, it is a spiritual discourse given by Krishna, an incarnation of Vishnu, to his disciple, the great warrior Arjuna, on the threshold of a vast war in which both would soon be involved. The teachings of the “Gita” are as meaningful today as they were thousands of years ago.
In this study group, in successive monthly sessions, we will slowly walk through the “Gita” from the beginning, discussing each of the verses. This will not be a lecture, but rather a study and discussion group. Although the leaders will officiate and offer brief talks now and then, all of the study group members will read and discuss the verses. Participants will share perspectives from their favorite translations of the verses and commentaries, and this will broaden our understanding of the “Gita.”
Because one of the leaders is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Yoga Education Provider (YACEP), you may count each hour of your participation in this study group as a “Contact” hour of continuing yoga education.
