Join Anthony Profeta for an in-depth study of the teachings of The Bhagavad Gita, the “Song of the Lord”. The Gita is perhaps the single most important religious text of Hinduism. However, it does come out of a much larger Sanskrit epic known as the Mahabharata.
For centuries the Gita has been quoted by everyone from writers & poets, such as Ralph Waldo Emerson & Henry David Thoreau; to scientists, theologians, and philosophers such as Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda, J. Oppenheimer, and Aldous Huxley. It is also very often the introductory text to Hinduism for a Western audience.

The Bhagavad-Gita combines the concepts expressed in the central texts of Hinduism, the Vedas and Upanishads, which in this text become synthesized into a single, coherent vision of belief in one God and the underlying unity of all existence.

The text teaches how one must elevate the mind and soul to look beyond appearances, which fool one into believing in duality and multiplicity, and recognize these are illusions; all humans and aspects of existence are a unified extension of the Divine which one will recognize once the trappings of illusion have been discarded.

Throughout the 18 chapters, Krishna (God) teaches about the nature of the Divine, Divine Love, how an individual should respond to life, recognition of the truth of existence, liberation from the cycle of rebirth & death, and how there are 4 paths of yoga which lead to self-realization and union with the Divine.

The course will be broken up into two intensive, full day classes during which we will dive deep into the teachings and philosophy.

Any translation of The Bhagavad-Gita may be used with this course. However, Anthony wouldn’t suggest “Bhagavad-Gita: As it is by ISKON & Swami Prabhupada due to all the commentary notes.

If you don’t already have a copy of the text Anthony would recommend:
The Bhagavad-Gita translated by Barabra Stoler Miller and published by Bantam Classics.

NOTE: Attendees should be sure to read the teachings that will be covered prior to each class as that will facilitate better discussions & questions.
