Bhagavad Gita and Karma Yoga: A Crash Course in 2 Sessions



Bhagavad Gita is a collection of 700 verses found within the epic Mahabharath.  It is the documentation of a conversation that evolved on a battlefield. Armies of two groups, the Pandavas and the Kauravas – who were close blood relatives – had assembled for a war. But just before the first arrows went flying, Arjuna, a commander of the Pandava clan broke down; he felt the war too overwhelming – emotionally. For counsel, he turned to Supreme Lord Sri Krishna, who was playing the role of his chariot driver.

“I don’t want a temporary stop-gap solution,” Arjuna sobbed. “I want the mystery of life unraveled. Who are we? What makes life? What do we truly need to be happy? And how can we lead a purposeful, satisfying, and wholehearted life with meaningful relationships?”

Aren’t these questions relevant even today?

Through this introductory course, we bring you the answers to these very queries.

Together we shall discover the building blocks that make life; we shall experience many aha moments together.  A concrete life-transforming action plan will be chalked out. Everything we say will be elaborated upon with research findings and illustrated through stories from the modern world.

And you will witness Karma-Yoga emerge out as a promising path to personal transformation.

Since this is an introductory course, we WON’T be discussing the Bhagavad Gita verse-by-verse, chapter-by-chapter. Rather, we will overview the essence of Gita’s teachings

A brief intro of the instructor

A premier institute – the IIT – groomed me into a technocrat. Perhaps they expected me to dive into some sort of cutting-edge research. But providence edged me out of mainstream science, and I found myself digging into books of the ancient Indians, the Vedas.

So far I have spent 15 years in the monastery. Now as a Vedic Thinker, I share ideas that can help people improve the quality of their lives, and with my background in science and technology, I present the Vedas in a scientific light. – Gopinath Chandra Das
