Practical Bhagavad Gita: Insights and Application

● Learn to practically apply the vital concepts of the Bhagavad Gita in your daily life.

The Bhagavad Gita delivers the multi dimensional aspects of our Upanishads (Vedanta) in an extremely complex historical setting which is fully applicable to the modern context. The deep insights provided are universal in context and timeless in their relevance. Vedanta represents the ethical, existential, metaphysical, philosophical, sociological and behavioural aspects of Sanatana Dharma. Yet we have lost this source of eternal wisdom through sheer decay and apathy. Today, our lives are more comfortable but far more complex. The Bhagavad Gita provides the anchoring to be strong and guidance to conquer. The idea that we will learn our scriptures after we retire is self-defeating. On the contrary, Vedanta is a force multiplier designed for the most active years of our life.
