Journey Into the Bhagavad Gita with Hari-kirtana das

August 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


The profound dialogue of the Bhagavad-gita stands as one of the most inspiring and intellectually stimulating conversations in the history of sacred literature. It’s also one of the most challenging to Western readers due to its distinct departure from the principles of modern science and traditional monotheism.To truly grasp the essence of the Bhagavad-gita, one must shift from the world’s perspective to the Gita’s vision, allowing its teachings to frame our understanding rather than fitting them into our pre-existing worldview.

This alignment isn’t about intellectual capability; it’s about adopting the right mindset. Instead of asking, “How can I interpret these concepts to fit into the modern world?” we should ponder, “How can these concepts help me understand the modern world?”

What if the Gita itself holds the key to its understanding, hidden in plain sight within its verses?

In this workshop, Hari-kirtana das will guide you through an exploration of the Gita using his new book, Journey Into The Bhagavad Gita. Through discussions, guided meditations, journaling, and personal experiments, you will discover:

  • The verses of the Gita that unlock the secrets to its teachings.
  • The importance of aligning with the Gita’s worldview to tap into its transformational potential, and practical steps to achieve this.
  • The subconscious modern or postmodern assumptions that hinder our understanding of the Gita, and how to overcome them.
  • The way the Gita’s radical spirituality provides a logical basis for contemporary spiritual activism.
  • How to integrate the Gita’s spiritual insights into your daily life.

Additionally, the workshop will feature kirtan (musical mantra meditation), ample time for Q&A, and post-workshop refreshments.

At its heart, the Bhagavad-gita addresses the crucial question: “How should we respond to the challenges we face as spiritual beings in the material world?” This workshop will delve into the Gita’s profound answers to this vital question.
