About The Sacred Connect

Sri Krishna spoke the Bhagavad Gita when Arjuna was experiencing the deepest of sorrows. The words of Sri Krishna didn’t just encourage Arjuna, but also permanently transformed him. Arjuna was equipped to face not just the immediate emotional turmoil, but all the inevitable ups and downs which he would face anytime in the future. Arjuna now knew how to think and act when misfortune strikes – and also when fortune strikes. Because, we humans are vulnerable – in sorrow, and all the more in happiness.
