Timeless Wisdom of Bhagavad Gita: A Complete Course in Non-Duality

A crowning jewel of spiritual wisdom, the Bhagavad Gita shares an illuminating exchange between Lord Krishna and the conflicted Arjuna (the spiritual seeker). This profound dialogue addresses life's deepest questions — Who am I, truly? What is the highest purpose of my existence? How can I live with true intelligence and clarity? If all of existence is One, why do I perceive separateness? Where does the universe come from, and what was there before its creation? How can I understand the nature of God? How do I transcend my sense of smallness and limitation?

Engaging with these profound philosophical and existential teachings no only helps you navigate life's challenges with strength, so you're not thrown off so easily. But most importantly, these teachings offer a step-by-step method to liberate the seeker from the confines of the ego — from the limitations imposed by the material world, and from cycle of rebirth into another body-mind.

The Bhagavad Gita lessons take us on a deep journey inwards. 

In these live weekly Zoom classes, we delve into this treasure verse by verse, exploring its 18 chapters with depth they deserve.

Under the guidance of Andre Vas of the Swami Dayananda (Arsha Vidya) lineage — you will learn practical methods to refine your thinking, emotions and finally gain the full understanding of nature of Reality that frees you from the individual who you think you are.

This lineage ensures a connection to a time-tested tradition – an ancient philosophy which can't be contradicted from any standpoint.

The Gita's spiritual knowledge comes from the Upanishads. It's both a book that helps you sharpen your mind through karma yoga, meditation, and mindfulness practices. But also a book on the science of consciousness that answers questions beyond what's available to science, inference and perception — and reconciles spirituality with rationality.

If you feel ready to begin the studies and are 100% committed, you're invited to join the live classes by contacting below.

Guidelines:

  • Student comes with humility. Meaning intellectual pride and past spiritual expertise is put away. Just like taking shoes off before entering a temple.

  • Aspirant wishes to incorporate the vision of Bhagavad Gita into every day life through self-effort.

Details:

💰 Cost? Most essentials to life like sunlight, air and plants are free. While man made non-essentials, cost. Ironic indeed! In the same way, eternal self-knowledge is essential, thus remains free — at least in this tradition. Teacher is financially self-sufficient.

  1. This comment may seem abrasive and totally out of the blue, but I assure you it is NOT meant as a criticism of you, who I find to be knowledgeable, and pleasantly engaging. I like listening to you. You are a good speaker and you have a charming style. You don’t seem pedantic at all or dull at all. My problem is NOT with you, but with the stories. I confess I am bored with these characters from the Gita! We are only just getting started and I’m already lost in the telling of these tales, which don’t seem relatable to me at my stage in life in 2024. I’m beginning to sense that the Gita and I don’t get along and this is depressing, because I so much wanted to find spiritual truths to help me in my study of Advaita Vedanta. I should point out, though, that this is not the first time I have encountered this problem. I experience the same when I study Christianity (Christ parables seem cliche to me), and when I try to read the Lotus Sutra, I get lost in the telling of what seem to me to be completely unrelatable stories. Have you ever encountered this sense of ennui in students before?

    1. Hi Braden. What you’ve done right so far is reached out to me about this.

      Perhaps it’s not the stories. Because you said yourself, there’s a similar resistance with Buddhism (in online chat), Christianity, and now CH1 of BGita. Stories are cross-culturally the means or method by which a dialogue opens up discussing real life matters, making you analyze your thinking processes and life. They’re meant to stir things in you. They’re meant to bring up unresolved stuff. What a teacher has certainly seen is, when things stir up, there’s 3 common responses:

      a) Projecting onto teacher.
      b) Projecting onto stories or teachings or culture, or tradition.
      c) Projecting onto self (I’m not competent, doesn’t apply to me, I’m beyond this, I need something higher, etc)

      What if the stories are not the cause, but the cause is deeper. In Psychology, what we say is almost never the true underlining issue. We only mention the effects (surface level observations). To find the real cause, takes time.

      Now what? In class, I want the student to WANT to be there, not because they’re obligated to or have to or told to come by someone else. You genuinely want to come because it speaks to you. You’re challenged. You may not see the relevance now, but it’ll come much later.

      In Vedanta, one first cleans up their inner psychology, which is 95% of the work. Then your mind is ready to grasp the big vision.

      Another issue could be CH1. It’s full of names and stories. Official BGita only starts CH2, verse 11. However, stories aren’t going anywhere. Whole teaching (CH1-18) takes place exactly how it’s already been taking place (dialogue), and has always taken place via dialogue form.
