Gurudev, Paramahamsa Hariharananda, said, "From time immemorial, human beings have been on the path, which is sometimes straight and undisturbed, but many times it twists and turns and causes us to forget our destination or lose our way in the thick forest of material splendor. The guide and the guidebook are vitally important." One of those guidebooks is the Bhagavad Gita.

These recordings are from online classes, every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. The first 30 minutes of the class is a discourse on the Bhagavad Gita followed by 15 minutes of chanting.
Rishis of yore have given many methodologies to bring inner peace to ourselves depending on the time, place, and situation. Chanting mantras, group singing, kirtans, and listening to hymns brings deep calmness and a sense of joy to the mind very quickly.

When the whole humankind is going through a crisis, we need to have patience. It is very painful to hear that people are getting affected everyday, the economy is crumbling down, etc. However, we need to accept the situation and act very responsibly. It is in our hands to protect ourselves from getting infected and also to prevent others from getting infected from us. Let us abide by the system which is trying to fight the epidemic. Let us not be impatient to get out of our houses. Let us minimize our needs and try to adjust with whatever is available.

These are discourses from the Prajnana Mission ashram and elsewhare to help us through these trying times. They are conducted via Zoom, and will be annouced via email prior to the discourse.
