Year-End Vedānta Course with Swami Pratyagbodhananda

December 24 @ 8:00 pm - December 31 @ 5:00 pm

Topic: Vedanta topic to be announced

Swami Pratyagbodhananda will teach a series of classes on a Vedānta topic (to be announced).


Swami Advayatmananda

The Bhagavad Gītā is considered to contain the essence of all the Vedas, and the second chapter of the Gītā is considered to contain the essence of the entire Gītā.  The key to unlocking the profundity of the Gītā is Śaṅkarācārya’s traditional Sanskrit commentary. 

In these talks we will be covering selected verses from chapter 2 and exploring portions of the commentary to help unfold the four main topics of the chapter – Arjuna-śaraṇa-āgati, Arjuna’s seeking refuge in Śrī Kṛṣṇa;  Sāṁkhya-yoga, Self-knowledge; Karma-yoga, transforming one’s active lifestyle into a prayer and spiritual practice; and Sthita-prajña-lakṣaṇa, the characteristics of a one who rests firmly in the vision of one’s inherent fullness, and the means to this Jñāna-niṣṭhā. 

No previous Sanskrit knowledge is required but is helpful.  Handouts of the verses with relevant commentary selections will be provided in both devanāgarī and transliteration.
