The Wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita

Thursday, November 17, 7:00 p.m. CDT

The wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita with Eduardo Javier Gramaglia 11 3. 2The Bhagavad Gita contains the very essence of Eastern thought, and is in itself a description of the spiritual path of the disciple, taken from many angles. Its message is essentially that of dharma, or right action, right thought, and right path. It is the dialogue between Arjuna, the paradigmatic warrior, and the God Krishna, a symbol of the soul.

When a monumental confrontation is about to be unleashed, a most unusual and unique situation takes place: while tension builds up between two armies, Krishna in the middle of the battlefield, gives Arjuna the most sacred teachings. These teaching becomes the Bhagavad Gita, or “The Song of the Lord, Krishna.” Its core may perhaps be what the Yogasutras teach; that behind form, there is a Thinker who uses the form; and that the aspiring disciple should “step out of illusion, and be who he essentially is, the soul.
