The Bhagavad Gita

From April 14 through May 26, a new seven-part series to study the ancient Indian Classic, the Bhagavad Gita, facilitated by Steve Marcom.

Bhagavad GitaAs Emerson said, the Gita is “the voice of an old intelligence which in another age & climate had pondered & thus disposed of the same questions which exercise us.” It addresses the fundamental question, How should we live?  Or, more essentially, How should I live? It is a book of deeply personal instruction, a sacred text.

We will use the Stephen Mitchell translation as our source. Participants are encouraged to purchase a copy of the book. Though not required, reading this short, yet powerful, book will allow you to receive the greatest benefit from our discussions.  A limited number of books are available for purchase in the Unity of Fairfax bookstore.

There is an online version of the text - Bhagavad Gita. But I highly recommend purchasing a hard copy; there is an energy in the hard copy and it is easy to skip about to different locations.
