Event description
Workshop on Bhagavad Gita in the current context

About this Event

The Bhagavad Gita is the most well-known scripture relating to the Hindu philosophy both in India and abroad. The story of Bhagavad Gita is unique in its true-sense, as the sacred text of 700 verses in 18 chapters was told by the un-armed charioteer of the King Arjuna in a battlefield. Though Bhagavad Gita is widely perceived as a religious scripture on its own, in reality it contains a summary of the great philosophy told in the Vedanta or Upanishad’s. It dwells in the ethical dilemma of man-slaughter and evolves around discussions and arguments on the man’s dharma in Vedic tradition, going through the nature of self, the world and the ultimate reality both in dualistic and non-dualistic form. There are paths of Yoga prescribed in the Bhagabad Gita which is widely different than the ‘Asana’ of the Patanjali Yoga. In the workshop we will undertake a detailed discussion with an open mind on the Yogic paths of Gita, the paths which does not need any physical exercise or agility to follow!

The workshop will be a great place to find and exchange ideas to guide us through the trials and tribulations of life following the Vedic tradition, that is unfolded in the Bhagavad Gita.
