8/30 Advanced Training: Bhagavad Gita

8/30 Advanced Training: Bhagavad Gita

This lecture guides the class through a deep reading of the famous “Song of the Lord”, the teachings of the Hindu God Krishna to his disciple Arjuna. In this 2000 year-old Sanskrit poem, Krishna plays the role of the Yoga master, the guru, and explains to his depressed student various spiritual paths. Krishna calls these different approaches to dealing with human suffering “yoga”, and these definitions of the paths of yoga have endured to the present day as the definitive explanations of the spiritual dimensions of Yoga.
