Bhagavad Gita (Sanskrit for “Song of God”), a poem-like retelling of an epic war in India, was first written down in the 1st or 2nd century CE. The story is told as a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and his charioteer Krishna (an incarnation of the god Vishnu). 

Arjuna is distraught thinking that he will have to kill his family and friends in this battle in which he is obligated to participate. The book starts with him throwing down his weapons, and crying to Krishna that he will not fulfill his duty. The rest of the story unfolds the wisdom Krishna imparts to Arjuna along the epic battle to keep Arjuna on track to fulfill his duty.

One single text, only 700 lines long, encapsulates, embodies, and expounds the principle themes of Hindu thought and practice. While many Hindus use the Bhagavad Gita as their guide through life, like many Christians use the Bible, the Bhagavad Gita imparts UNIVERSAL truths that provide a positive influence for living a purposeful, joy-filled, and action-taking life. The characters represent different aspects of our life; we can learn many lessons through understanding what their roles signify and use elements of the story to apply to our own lives to make excellent decisions.

This class has been created for those NEW to the Bhagavad Gita. No prior knowledge is necessary to participate. The course is also suitable for those who have already read the book, but are looking to understand the deeper nuances of meaning contained within it.

First lesson includes a full introduction to the Bhagavad Gita; subsequent classes will have a reading assignment of three chapters (about 25 pages total) per week.
