What we know is whoever (or Sage Vyasa) wrote the Bhagavad Gita thousands of years ago, he knew the world might change, but NOT the humankind. He knew we would face precisely similar life problems that people in his world faced. And so, he gave all the practical solutions to life problems through Krishna’s words. And here we are, bringing insights from the Bhagavad Gita with different perspectives.
Do we need to believe Krishna as God to understand verses of the Bhagavad Gita? ABSOLUTELY NOT.
In fact, we might make many Krishna’s devotees uncomfortable because, at no point, we will preach Krishna as God.
Instead, our focus is to promote mindful living and mental well-being; and how we can be successful in life by following some of these practical teachings of the Bhagavad Gita.
We firmly believe that success in life happens when we discover our true self or inner self. We see the character, Krishna, in the Bhagavad Gita as our inner self and Arjuna as our confused mind.
Using a storytelling approach, we will discuss verses of the Bhagavad Gita as a conversation between the inner and outer consciousness.
Verses of Bhagavad Gita are influenced by Samkhya philosophy, Vedic texts, and Patanjali Yoga Sutras; and so we will discuss these concepts too.
Additionally, we will discuss the wisdom of several scientists, businessmen, actors, poets, and philosophers (Rumi, Plato, Socrates).
And finally, enjoy listening to Aesop’s moral stories, famous movie characters, Marvel heroes, Star Wars Jedis, and other aspects of life. We will talk a lot about them to explain the Bhagavad Gita’s verses and their teachings.
So, friends, join us for the discussion. We will go one-by-one, chapter-wise. We are coming up with blogs and podcasts!
