Living the Gita
The Bhagavad-Gita means "Song of the Spirit," the divine communion of truth-realization between the human and its Creator, the direct teachings of Spirit through the soul. Handed down from the archives of timeless truth by God-knowing sages, this sacred living scripture has now landed on the doorstep to your "soul center." At this point in our evolution, humanity stands more ready and equipped than ever before to do what it takes to conquer human nature and realize their infinite Spirit-Essence.
Starting January 5, 2012 (the birthday of Paramahansa Yogananda) The Soul Center will initiate its premier study of Lord Krishna's sacred discourse of the royal science of Raja Yoga – the step by step process of how an incarnate soul retraces its steps back home to Spirit. Using Yogananda's two-volume commentary and translation of the Gita's concise 700 verses, "God Talks with Arjuna," this program will be facilitated by Tom Kelly, former monk in the Self Realization Foundation Monastic Order of 25 years and disciple of Yogananda for over 40 years.
Following the path that Lord Krishna has provided we will:
- Create an enduring foundation for spiritual living
- Awaken the soul’s guiding light of intuition through the undiscourageable practice of calmness and meditation
- Develop unshakable faith in the Divine
- Awaken “shraddha”, the heart’s natural love for Truth
- Develop a dynamic spiritual will to manifest love in everyday life
- Become a fearless “soul warrior” ready to “square off” with the restless and material tendencies that have taken over your bodily kingdom
- Live a balanced life by keeping the awareness of God in meditation and activity
Thursdays May 2nd - June 13th
10:45am - 12:15pm
Cost: $75 for 5 week series or $18 for Single Class
(Books not included, this class will be using "God Talks With Arjuna, The Bhagavad Gita"
you can purchase it at The Soul Center or Amazon)
“The entire knowledge of the cosmos is packed into the Gita. Supremely profound, yet couched in revelatory language of solacing beauty and simplicity, the Gita has been understood and applied on all levels of human endeavor and spiritual striving – sheltering a vast spectrum of human beings with their disparate natures and needs. Wherever one is on the way back to God, the Gita will shed its light on that segment of the journey.”
