Exploring the Bhagavad Gita, a one-day workshop – Saturday 4/30 The Bhagavad Gita, literally ‘song to the beloved’ is universally regarded as one of the world’s greatest literary and spiritual masterpeices. It is one of the most translated writings in history, inspiring such diverse figures as Aldous Huxley, Henry David Thoreau, Albert Einstein, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Carl Jung, Bono, and J. Robert Oppenheimer, the father of the Atomic Bomb. On the surface, the Bhagavad Gita is a battlefield conversation between Arjuna and Krishna, his charioteer.

We will examine Gita’s profound insights on such central Yogic themes as meditation, right-knowledge, dharma, detachment, devotion and their practical applications to everyday life
