What you will learn:
The Bhagavad Gita is a dialog between Lord Krishna and Arjuna which takes place in the middle of a battlefield.
Lord Krishna teaches Arjuna how to attain the state of perfection which all Yogis aspire to attain. While doing so, he reveals to Arjuna the most profound, sublime and soul-stirring spiritual truths.
The battlefield of the Bhagavad Gita symbolizes the ongoing inner battle which every spiritual aspirant faces when trying to remove deeply embedded habits and thought patterns that are not conducive to leading a happy and fulfilling life.
When studying the Bhagavad Gita, the students are skillfully guided to obtain a broad understanding regarding all paths of yoga and their actual practice.
Chapter three teaches us how to recognize our own path and shows us what our role is within our own individual life and also within creation.
