Bhagavad Gita


YOGA VIDA

Bhagavad Gita is the seminal South Asian pre-modern yogic text that has captured the imagination of both popular and scholastic audiences in both India and the West. Its practicality helps explain its enormous popularity as does its diversity of yogic options. While affirming the transcendental path of meditation as seen in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, it also highlights the paths of devotion (bhakti), action (karma), and knowledge (jnana). The Gita, as it is popularly known, is a wisdom text with sustaining potency across time and space and a practical handbook for the modern American yogi. All students interested in the subject are invited to join!

DURING THIS 25 HOUR MODULE, WE'LL EXPLORE THE GITA THROUGH:

>> Epic Backstory
>> Philosophical Context & Significance
>> Sankhya Metaphysics
>> Context in Modern Yoga in America
>> Phenomenological Methodology
>> Contemplation and discussion on its verses
>> Application to our lives as modern American yogis
