"Bhagavad Gita As It Is" Reading and Discussion Group 2021-2022

The Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as a jewel of India's spiritual wisdom. Spoken by Lord Krishna as a type of spiritual accompaniment to His disciple Arjuna, the Gita's concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self-realization.  As a theological and philosophical classic, the Bhagavad-gita summarizes the conclusions of the Vedas, the ancient scriptures written over 5000 years ago in the Sanskrit language. It covers topics ranging from religion to relationships, science to sociology, leadership to lifestyle management: the keys to all aspects of life, the universe and beyond. In every generation, over thousands of years, it has provided unceasing inspiration to thinkers, leaders, and spiritualists alike.

Deepening our understanding of the Gita benefits from the company of other spiritualists where we can discuss and question everything we read.

Undergraduate, graduate, faculty, staff and alumni are welcome.  Our bi-weekly discussions will provide:

  • A chapter-by-chapter summary
  • Delineation and discussion of pertinent themes from each chapter
  • A plethora of current, contemporary life lessons from this historical epic

The 16 sessions are thought-provoking and interactive. If you cannot attend sessions in person, you can attend using the zoom link provided or schedule 1-1 meetings (preeta.banerjee@tufts.edu) to ask questions or catch up on missed sessions.

We will meet on Fridays from 12-1 p.m. at the Mayer Campus Center in Room 012 or you can join us via zoom on the below-listed dates.  Please register for the group here.
