For centuries, the Bhagavad-gita has spoken to those with the inner notion that there must be more to life than the struggle for happiness through external objects of pleasure. Through a series of questions and answers the text lays out a path for elevating the way one can respond to the constant flow of change that characterizes the external world, and finding a steady, spiritual, inner peace. A central theme of the Bhagavad-gita is the hallmarks of the “sage of steady mind” and how that may be achieved through yoga.

In this course we’ll examine the above qualities and how, by the process of reflecting on the knowledge of the Gita in the course of life’s challenges, knowledge can mature into wisdom, a peaceful mind and transformation through deep absorption in meditation.
