More about the Course

Bhagavad Gita, the timeless message of reality given by Lord Krishna to Arjuna in the battlefield is the very essence of all the scriptures – the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Mahabharata and so on. It is one of the most popular texts that transforms our lives for the better. The wisdom of the Gita helps us to master our mind and to make our life a pleasure!

This course will cover all the 18 chapters of the Bhagavad Gita. All the verses will be detailed through discourses, doubt clarification, and meditation sessions. Participants will also be taught Gita chanting. There is also an online forum for group discussion. What greater fortune can there be than such an in-depth study of the Bhagavad Gita!

Why Master Gita Master Life™?

Bhagavad Gita is a time-tested manual for self-mastery.

This course will help everyone study Bhagavad Gita in depth. There will be discourses to make us understand the intricacies of the subject, group discussion to reflect on the important topics, doubt clarification sessions to get clarity and meditation sessions to allow the knowledge to get assimilated. After each chapter, there will also be an online self-assessment questionnaire to check one's comprehension of the essential teachings of the chapter. This is mandatory to proceed to the next chapter. Kindly note that only after submitting the self-assessment questionnaire, videos of the next chapter will become available to the students for their lifetime use.

This course is meant for ‘busy people’. It is well-spaced to give everyone sufficient time to learn and digest the supreme knowledge. You just have to take out 11 to 12 hours in every month according to your schedule to listen and study. That way you can complete the course within 20 months (18 months for 18 chapters and additional 1 month each for the 2nd and 18th chapters).

It is twenty months of austerity and resolve to transform your life.

Should we sincerely follow the essence and teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, it would take away our anger, jealousy, and stress. It will metamorphose us into new personalities where we realize that we are born to live happily and contentedly.

      It is beyond our words. Words cannot describe the level of teaching by Swami Advayananda Ji and Br. Ved ji for transforming an individual and making one understand the Brahma. So far we were identifying ourselves with our body but now the teachings teaches the difference between an Atma and the body mind complex. His way of elaborate teaching is inexplicable.

      This journey of MGML is absolutely fascinating. At the external level, there is hearing, there is learning. At the subtle level there is reflection, introspection and with the guided meditation, one gradually gets aligned to MGML. Humble Pranams. Hari Om

      Every session is an inner engineering tool. The sessions are no doubt stimulating and enjoyable; and what's more, the 30 days duration between the lessons, when I observe myself and reflect on myself, can best be described interesting and invigorating. I recommend the course to anyone with the slightest inclination towards the purpose of life

      Hari Om ! This is a very wonderful course. The Complicated Sanskrit words and verses are taught in the most simplified manner. The recitation can be learnt very easily and the meaning of the verses recited are explained in most simplified manner with day to day examples and humorous anecdotes. Swamiji who teaches the subject is very understanding that me/we are at a very fundamental level of understanding the Scriptures etc. usually drives the point home sometimes like hitting on the nail with a hammer so as to say. He recaps often so that points are well taken. Joining this course is the best gift i had given to myself in my life. Swamiji touches the heart with his wit,humour and the entire duration of the class there is no boring moment at all. Hari Om !!
