Srimad Bhagavad Gita

b6a3903df9a52a22dda4483515cb2797--religious-quotes-spiritual-quotes.jpg

The Path to Eternal Happiness starts with the Study of The Bhagavad Gita.

The story and history of Arjuna is the story of humans from time immemorial. Faced with an unprecedented, intense, and deep set of conflicts and dilemmas, Arjuna seeks and receives the timeless wisdom from Sri Krishna. This is the story and teaching of Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Gita is The Scripture of Mankind that cuts across all barriers of gender, caste, creed, nationalities, religion and other apparent barriers. 

 

Benefits of studying the Gita:

  • Understand how to live a life free from stress, anxiety and tension, irrespective of situations and circumstances

  • Apply insights and lessons that serve as a practical guide for daily living

  • Learn easy techniques and tools that help you find and stay in equilibrium for peaceful and harmonious living

  • Tap into the essence of timeless wisdom for deep, ever-lasting happiness

By studying the Gita in a systematic and structured manner under a competent and traditional teacher, you can learn how to understand, interpret and apply ancient wisdom in a modern and contemporary context.

"

The quest to learn and understand Gita in its entirety led me to join Brahmavidya Foundation. The systematic and structured teaching by Guruji, his explanation of Gita slokas with simple examples, through Vedanta/Upanishads, have added values and shaped the attitude towards life/people/World, imbibe the sattvic qualities prescribed and well explained/practiced by Guruji. 
To summarize, The Brahmavidya Foundation have made Holistic learning of the Gita and the Upanishads possible and made us think that eternal happiness could be a possibility if we work hard on ourselves
