Bhagavad Gita In Light of Non-Duality & Basic Self-Inquiry into Your Existence (1)

Lesson 1 of our Advaita Vedanta Nondualism Course starts with the Bhagavad Gītā story between inner-war of good/evil or spirit/matter within every human being (Pāṇḍavas/Kauravas).

When Arjuna loses his resolve, unable to stand up to his duty – then Kṛṣṇa begins teaching him (you, the student) brahmavidyā (Self-Knowledge).

Program is taught in context of traditional non-dual Advaita Vedānta vision of Oneness.We also use various Upaniṣad verses for complimentary explanations.

Program quickly accelerates by week 30+ from simple English to frequent Sanskrit usage. Thus judge not the initial intentional simplicity. Program stretches the pinnacle of human's intellect/mind.

ABOUT Bhagavad Gītā:

The Bhagavad Gītā is perhaps the most important text in Vedānta.  It’s one of the three main source texts. Upaniṣads and Brahma Sūtras being the other two.

It draws its main ideas from the Upaniṣads. It encompasses; Karma Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Jñāna Yoga. It is a dharma-śāstra  (how to live in harmony) and mokṣa-śāstra (how to ‘attain' liberation and free oneself from saṃsāra).

Bhagavad Gītā deals with the relationship between ACTION and KNOWLEDGE, so it’s got everything a human being could ask for his/her spiritual journey and accelerated growth.  For this reason, the Gītā remains an eternal-evergreen text.

    Thank you Andre for giving this teachings.

    Its amazing, more a miracle that I push on abutton on the computer and get answers about Maya and the Self.

    I am searching for a long time (Ignoring the awareness that I am). Ofcourse there’s a kind of heavyness on the road but it is amzing to realize that help and support is always available. Like the teachings that you give. It feels like a perfect planning of the wholeness. I regular view the video’s of Rupert Spira, Mooije and others and the pointers they give brought me closer to the Truth.
    So I look forward to your teaching. Again thanks for your affort to feel no affort.

      Indeed. Much proper guidance always been available throughout Vedas, yet ironically only really available when sincere listener is ready to listen.

    Namaste Andre
    I have enrolled for the Sanskrit classes starting March 01. I have just come across the Gita satsang sessions. Do they start next Tuesday or have you already started the program and if so is it still okay to attend next Tuesday!

    Many thanks Niranjan
