Song of Stillness: Bhagavad Gita – a ten week study
28th Jan - 13th Apr€360.58 – €753.83
The Bhagavad Gita is part of the epic The Maha Bharata. Within the Maha Bharata is a bloody war between two families of cousins, which involves the entire family.
As the two armies line up opposite each other to commence this bloody battle, Sri Krishna drives the chariot of the great warrior Arjuna and stops right between the two opposing armies. This is the scene of The Bhagavad Gita.
Thus begins the great dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna. It is a Sanskrit text on the subject of Brahma Vidya, the Science of Consciousness (Awareness) and turns out to be the greatest instruction on how to live the yogic life moment to moment in everyday life. It does not tell you to give up everything and become a monk but gives very clear instructions on how one can live life within all situations, including the family, work and society and still become Self Realised.
So when Sri Krishna stops Arjuna’s chariot, between the two warring families – he is really parking the chariot right in the Middle of your Mind – between all the waring contradictions of your Mind and begins to give suggestions/instructions on how to live within this life of so much confusion so that more clarity and innate happiness arises within you. And if one is diligent one can ultimately become Self Realised.
