The Baghavad Gita - Book Study Group

GitaEvent

 

The Gita is a love song to reality, a hymn in praise of everything excellent and beautiful and brave. It is a love song to both the darkness and the light, to our own true Self in the depths of being, the core from which all the glories and horrors of the universe unfold. —Stephen Mitchell

Over a period of ten Saturday afternoons we will study the great classic of Indian/Hindu spirituality, The Bhagavad Gita. In it we learn of four primary paths to realising our Divine Nature:

  • Karma Yoga – The Way of Selfless Service
  • Jnana Yoga – The Way of Knowledge/Wisdom
  • Raja Yoga – The Way of Meditation
  • Bhakti Yoga – The Way of Love/Devotion

All paths to the Divine are valid. You must choose which suits you best.  Ralph Waldo Emerson—whose philosophy is one of the foundations upon which Unity and New Thought teachings are based—wrote:

I owed a magnificent day to the Bhagavad Gita. It was the first of books; it was as if an empire spoke to us, nothing small or unworthy, but large, serene, consistent, the voice of an old intelligence which in another age and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.

Laughter Club
