The Bhagavad Gita, “The Lord’s Song”

25th March 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 6:15 pm

The Great Indian Classic

PDF of Gita handout for the meeting v2

Krishna in the Gita a hand coloured sketch by W Q JudgeThe Bhagavad Gita means “The Lord’s Song”, it is one of the most enduringly beloved and celebrated parts of the Hindu epic the Mahabharata, given at a time to strike the ‘key note’ for the start of the current Kali yuga cycle.  Its inner message is universal to all of humanity.

“it contains a dialogue wherein Krishna – the “Charioteer” – and Arjuna, his Chela, have a discussion upon the highest spiritual philosophy. The work is pre-eminently occult or esoteric.”   H. P. Blavatsky

It truly has the power to transform one’s life and William Q. Judge’s rendition is regularly studied in meetings. He wrote about it:

“The Bhagavad-Gita tends to impress upon the individual two things:
first, selflessness, and second, action; the studying of and living by it
will arouse the belief that there is but one Spirit and not several…”

The Bhagavad Gita’s meaning and teachings will be presented in four talks:

 

 

 

1st talk  “An introduction to the Gita & its great historical and spiritual meaning”

The Gita as a key to modernity and the challenges of these times.  The universal path of development that the Gita proposes will be given:

 

2nd “The Start of the Three Stage Path, the means of Union by Right Action”

on Karma Yoga, Chapters 1-6, ‘the Hands’

 

3rd “The Middle of the Path, to Union by Devotion”

on Bhakti Yoga, Chapters 7-12, ‘the Heart’

 

4th “The End of the Path, the Goal of Union by Right Knowledge”

on Jnana Yoga, Chapters 13-18, ‘the Head.’

 

This little book is one of the most powerful and enduring: it is “the study of Adepts.”
