Gita at Sunset
When you hear ‘Bhagavad Gita,’ what comes to mind? Maybe ideas of India. Perhaps mysticism and spiritual notions. Or, maybe you’ve been thinking ‘religion,’ and switched off.
The Bhagavad Gita is a monumental treatise of spiritual philosophy. The Sanskrit translation of ‘Bhagavad Gita‘ is ‘Song of God.’ Dramatically set in the middle of a battlefield on the brink of war, the Bhagavad Gita details an enthralling dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna, whereby Krishna encourages his warrior friend Arjuna to overcome a crisis of consciousness….we’ve all kind of been there, right?
They’ve only got 40 minutes until the fighting starts, and so both don’t mix words. In this thrilling exchange between two fiercely intellectual personalities, a whole spiritual science is described, addressing topics such as:
– Who am I?
– Why am I here, in this particular body?
– What am I supposed to be doing?
– Why do I end up doing the things I know will make me miserable?
– What will make me truly joyful and content?
– Do I need to be religious to be spiritual?
– What happens when I pop my clogs?
If you’re interested in an open discussion based on this wisdom tradition, please come along and join in.
