Dear friend,

The Bhagavad Gita is the most famous ancient Hindu text, and the most-loved Indian scripture. The battlefield setting of the Gita provides an allegory for the struggle we face as humans. The lessons of how to achieve victory in life, and how to triumph over pain and suffering, are revealed in the Gita.

We can gain a much greater understanding of these universal teachings when they are explored and explained by deep spiritual leaders. In The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita, Swami Kriyananda captures the great Guru Paramhansa Yogananda’s exposition of the Gita.

Nayaswamis Devi & Jyotish, Ananda’s Spiritual Directors, will lead us during the upcoming Inner Renewal Week - sharing practical applications of these timeless teachings. Please join us in “Going Deeper into God: Nine Gems for Living the Bhagavad Gita in Modern Times.”

“Those established in Sattwa rise upward.” Gita 14:18
