The Bhagavad Gita is one of the main Hindu scriptures that brings together the teachings of the Vedas, the Upanishads, and the Yoga Sutras. It is a narrative poem challenging us to explore the role of dharma in the life of Arjuna and hence in our own lives. This 4 week series will explore how the paths of intellect, devotion, service, and contemplation all lead to realization of the divine in one’s life. Each class will include a presentation, followed by group discussion, and then an asana class.
