Join a group study of India’s timeless wisdom text and extract it’s teachings for practical application to our modern lives. Known as the “ABC’s of spirituality”, the Bhagavad-gita is an introduction to the deep and powerful concepts of Eastern philosophy and spirituality. Through this interactive and systematic study the student will acquire essential tools for analyzing both the self and the world, and be better able to enter deeper into their own spiritual practices.
The first session will cover Chapters 1-6, the second session will cover Chapters 7-12, and the third session will cover Chapters 13-18. Prior knowledge of the Bhagavad-gita is not necessary.
The Bhakti Centers Donation Policy
The principle of bhakti is to do for others without motive. In yoga’s spiritual culture a teacher shares the wisdom of the sacred texts as an act of devotion rather than for profit. This is especially important in the Bhakti tradition where teaching and learning are essential ways bhakti is exchanged in daily life. It also keeps affordable for all this most important activity, sharing knowledge for upliftment.
At The Bhakti Center we honor these important principles of education: that teaching is done purely out of love, and that it is kept affordable. Therefore, for all of our classes on the sacred texts we don’t charge a set price.
So how do teachers survive? The answer is that pure teachers depend on God and good students honor that by sharing a donation from the heart and according to their means. Gratitude and generosity from student to teacher is also part of the yoga tradition.
For the course “Introduction to the Wisdom of the Bhagavad-gita” we suggest a donation between $20 and $30, although all donations will be welcomed.
All students must be registered online for this class.
