Our sessions include discussion on the practical application of wisdom from Bhagavad Gita and Srimad Bhagavatam.
Bhagavad-gita As It Is:
The Bhagavad-gita is known in the world today as a great spiritual epic and a philosophical treatise. The Bhagavad-gita’s 700 concise verses, spoken by Krsna to his friend Arjuna, provide a guide to the deeper meanings of life and the whole art of yoga.
Scholars on Bhagavad-gita:
“When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflect about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”~ Albert Einstein
“When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.”~ Mahatma Gandhi
“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 rage and climate had pondered and thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.”~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Srimad Bhagavatam is an ancient Sanskrit literature, one of the “Maha” Puranic texts of Vedic origin, defining the roots of bhakti-yoga, and considered the natural commentary on Vedanta-sutras, the celebrated Vedantic aphorisms.
Scholars on Srimad Bhagavatam:
“Human society is no longer bounded by geographical limits to particular countries or communities. Human society is broader than in the Middle Ages, and the world tendency is toward one state or one human society. The ideals of spiritual communism, according to Srimad-Bhagavatam, are based more or less on the oneness of the entire human society, nay, of the entire energy of living beings. The need is felt by great thinkers to make this a successful ideology. Srimad-Bhagavatam will fill this need in human society. It begins, therefore, with an aphorism of Vedanta philosophy, janmady asya yata?, to establish the ideal of a common cause.” – A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada.
