Bhagavad Gita, “the Song of God” and how it relates to our lives today
There is so much turbulence in our world of today. Everyday our news and social media reveals daily shocking events happening in our country and in our world. This class series will focus on an ancient eastern scripture known as the Bhagavad Gita that means “the Song of God.” This Song of God is a step–by-step guideline for staying calm, centered and peaceful even in the midst of chaos on the battlefield of life. The workshop will directly relate this ancient scripture to each of our lives through the symbolic relationship between the great warrior Arjuna representing the individual soul and his mentor Krishna, symbolic of the Universal soul. How many times have we longed for that dialogue with our creator, seeking a universal perspective greater than our own? How many times has our soul cried out for advice and direction during difficult times?
The Gita is an uplifting and highly inspiring teaching that gives courage, understanding and advice in traversing our spiritual paths when conditions of our society are erupting all around. The guidelines that Krishna sets forth in a time of turbulence, is profound in this ancient text that is timeless scripture that gives courage, understanding and hope in traversing our spiritual path when conditions of our society are erupting all around.
This class series will reflect on what is our part in this world play, and how each of us can make a difference by changing our internal process. It is believed that when we make these positive changes within ourselves, we can influence the atmosphere around us. The Gita gives verse-by-verse guidance for inner change that impacts outer change and how when we make positive shifts internally we can influence our communities, our nation, and lastly, our world.
Recording will be available to all registrants for 5 days after each class, so if you have to miss a class you can make it up before the next one!
