The Bhagavad Gita ("Song of The Blessed Lord") is a sacred Hindu scripture, considered among the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy. More commonly known as The Gita, it consists of 700 verses, and spans eighteen chapters of the great Indian epic The Mahabharata. The teacher of the Bhagavad Gita is Lord Krishna, who is revered as a manifestation of God himself, and is referred to within as Bhagavan, the Divine One.
The content of the Gita is the conversation between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, taking place on the battlefield before the start of the Kurukshetra war. Facing a critical life turning point, and overwhelmed with dejection, the quintessential disciple Arjuna lays down his weapons and refuses to fight. Turning to Krishna, his charioteer and teacher, he begins the famous dialogue between teacher and student which addresses the most profound meaning of life and our relationship to God. It is a metaphorical story of the battle within us all to achieve the ultimate union with God and to reach the summit of a divine life.
A journey through the Gita is a journey through the depths of our own being, and there is no other master more qualified to take us on this journey than Paramahamsa Prajnanananda. In this series of 300 one-hour discourses, Paramahamsa Prajnanananda takes us through the entire text step-by-step and reveals the hidden spiritual treasures within each of the verses. With an elaborate unveiling of deep spiritual truths and yogic philosophy, he offers one of the most in-depth commentaries on the Gita available today. This series was delivered during the 4th Residential Brahmachari Training Course at Hariharananda Gurukulum in Orissa, India.
