Essence of Bhagavad Gita: Live & Interactive Online Course

Essence of Bhagavad Gita: A Practical Approach


● Learn how the philosophy of Bhagavadgītā can be applied practically in daily life to deal with tricky and confusing decisions that we have to make at various points!


The Bhagavadgītā is a canonical text in the Indian philosophy. It is, certainly, a deep text to understand. This text, unfortunately, is restricted only to the spiritual aspects and the practical aspects of the Gītā are overlooked -nay- ignored by society. This is not a book to be read after relinquishing with the worldly responsibilities and while enjoying the second inning of your life! This is a text to be read and comprehended in the most active phases of your life. Thus, we would like to put forth a few practical aspects of the Bhagavadgītā through the course in a nutshell. It is, however, impossible to cover all practical aspects of the texts. We are planning to bring a few pearls of Krishna’s wisdom!
