Karuna Center for Yoga and Healing Arts
The Bhagavad Gita is a sacred Hindu scripture. It is considered among the most important texts in the history of literature and philosophy. Spoken by Lord Krishna to Arjuna, who is undergoing a moment of existential crisis, the text deals with the nature of the self, the world, ultimate reality, the purpose of human existence, and the spiritual paths.

These Paths Are:

Jnana Yoga: The path of self-knowledge Karma Yoga: The path of action in the world Raja Yoga: The path of meditation Bhakti Yoga: The path of theistic devotion The workshop will undertake a discussion of these four yoga systems. We will also make references to the background of the text and to some of the major streams of Hindu thought. Participants are encouraged to bring any sanskrit version of the text. We recommend: The Bhagavad Gita (Suny Series in Cultural Perspectives) by Winthrop Sargeant and Christopher Chapple (Paperback – Apr. 1994)
