The Bhagavad Gita

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Zoom Webinar Through San Diego Oasis

Join us for this Zoom webinar as we explore India’s most beloved sacred text, the Bhagavad Gita. Composed around the time of Christ, the Gita is the plain-talking culmination of the rich philosophical traditions begun in the earlier Vedas, Upanishad, and Buddhist texts. Like all literature, it is best approached in layers. What does the Bhagavad Gita teach about God, duty, ethics, war, society, consciousness, human nature, violence, and the beauty of being alive? A favorite book of Gandhi who carried chapter two in his pocket his whole life, and of Thoreau who brought only one book to Walden Pond, his copy of the Gita borrowed from his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson. Very few books have had this long a reach or this profound an impact. Let’s find out why. $15
