Srimad Bhagavad Gita, the Divine song of the Lord, occurs in the Bhishma Parva of the Mahabharata. This great handbook of practical living marked a positive revolution in Hinduism and inaugurated a Hindu renaissance for the ages that followed the Puranic era.   The fifth chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga of True Renunciation is essentially a bridge between Karma-Yoga (dealt in Chapter 3 & 4) and the Yoga of Meditation (dealt in Chapter 6).  Gurudev’s commentary will be reviewed and discussed during the class sessions.

During this year the class will be following Adi Shankaracharya's Bhaja Govindam with commentary by Swami Chinmayananda.     Bhaja Govindam, one of the seemingly simpler texts composed by Adi Shankaracharya is an extremely popular, Vedantic, poetic and lyrical work. Here the fundamentals of Advaita Vedanta are taught in simple musical verses. Yet, the verses have great depth if the intelligent seeker wishes to dive in. For such a seeker, a sincere study of this work, can help remove all their delusions (Moha). Hence the poem is also known as Moha Mudgara (hammer) - one that removes all delusions.

Kathopanishad, one of the major Upanishads expounds a great truth, very simply, as to what happens after death. It is in the form of a dialogue between the God of Death (Yama) and Nachiketas, a boy just nine years old.  Its importance can very well be gauged by the fact that many of its mantras are reproduced in toto in the Bhagavad Gita.   Following Kathopanishad, relevant portions from Bhagavad Chapter 6 and 7 will be reviewed. After the main topics described above are covered, if time permits, the class will begin discussions on Mundakopanishad.
