Chanting the Gita – free online course
Workshop fee: $FREE
Chanting the Bhagavad Gita. We have finished chanting Chapter One to Five of the Bhagavad Gita and we are currently chanting from Chapter Six, the discussion on ‘Ātmasaṃyama yoga’ which is a perfect text to study along with the Patañjali Yoga Sūtras – Throughout the Gita Krishna reveals how to find the answers to many questions within ourselves and how to act in a way that follows dharma and without accumulating further karmaphala. It is said that the Gītā covers all the knowledge from the Upaniṣads – presenting it in a way that easily understood by all.
This course uses the traditional method of call and response as a way to perfect the Sanskrit pronunciation and to facilitate memorization. Students will be encouraged to memorize the verses but this is not compulsory, nor will there be any pressure to do so – it is excellent for the mind and spirit even to attempt it. The basic meanings of the ślokas will be given but the focus will be on recitation. Our intention is to learn all eighteen chapters of the Gita, finishing sometime in 2021/2022
This is a free ongoing course through 2021.
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6.30pm to ~ 7.15pm
We are begin Chapter Seven on March 25, 2021. Students may join the classes at any time
