The Mahabharata declares: “If you master the Bhagavad Gita, what is the need for a pile of scriptures.'' The Bhagavad Gita is the quintessence of the entire Upanishads, immensely practical and thus the most popular of all the scriptural treatises.

This course offers an in-depth verse to verse study of the Gita along with chanting, meditation and doubt clarification sessions. By mastering the wisdom of the Gita, one truly masters the mind, life and the world!
The Upanishads reveal to us that in truth we are beyond life and death, good and bad; that we are the supreme Brahman, the highest Reality. Inclusive of all, excluding nothing, this ultimate Reality of life when realized through the triple means of shravana, manana and nididhyasana (listening, reflection and meditation) reveals the Self as source of all Bliss and Knowledge within. The entire universe becomes one’s own abode, and comes to be experienced as a glorious expression of the Self. Come revel in the Upanishads, bask in its knowledge, discover yourself and become fulfilled. What are you waiting for?
