The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most ancient scriptures on the philosophy of life. In past, wars have been fought all over the world, but never has any war brought out a message so timeless and so universal in its appeal and relevance to our life. The Bhagavad Gita is one such scripture which gives us a panoramic overview of all possible paths to reach the ultimate truth.
Truth is contradictory; if it is not contradictory, then it is not truth! Bhagavad Gita is full of contradictions which we can understand only if we see it in totality. By taking examples from everyday life, Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in his inimitable style, laced with wit, humor and practical wisdom speaks on chapters of Bhagavad Gita, which makes it so simple for a common man to understand, relate in one’s day to day life, explore great depth in the verses of the Bhagavad Gita and progress further in the path to reach the ultimate truth.
At The Art of Living International Center, Bengaluru, we present various residential and non-residential programs during the Bhagavad Gita discourse with Gurudev, and the details of programs are as given below.
The Blessings Program is a subtle yet powerful program that includes unique processes and meditations designed to take the individual to a deep state of gratitude and fullness. Participants report that more than any other program they have taken, they become aware of the tremendous grace that flows to them and through them.
Sanyam means a combined simultaneous practice of Dhāraṇā (concentration), Dhyāna (meditation) & Samādhi (union). A tool to receive deeper knowledge of qualities of the object. It’s a term summarizing the ‘catch-all’ process of psychological absorption in the object of meditation.
