“One extraordinary aspect of the Bhagavad Gita is its universality. Whatever the needs of any particular time or people, this great scripture addresses them all from the highest point of view.” Swami Kriyananda, The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita

Are you seeking spiritual expansion?

Join us as Nayaswami Parvati and Nayaswami Pranaba bring the wisdom and power of the Bhagavad Gita to life! Hear its epic stories and how Krishna guides Arjuna (who represents every man) towards enlightenment. Come enjoy an inspiring evening with our special guests as they share the Bhagavad Gita, based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.

The Bhagavad Gita tells us how to live an inner spiritual life amidst the outer chaotic world. Seekers of Truth throughout history have studied the Gita for its wisdom, guidance, and inspiration. In Krishna’s teaching to Arjuna there is a powerful transmission that meets us where we stand and delivers us to the next stage. The more you practice the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, the more you realize their power and truth, and the more they refine and open you.

The Gita is a treasure trove of practical tools for the spiritual life.  Pranaba and Parvati will help us explore this scripture by discussing how these timeless, universal teachings guide us to our highest potential.
