Bhagavad Gita classes

Chapter 1

ARJUNA VIDHAAD YOG (THE HESITATION AND DESPONDENCY OF ARJUNA)

The chapter 1 study classes will cover: 

  • The difference between Dharma (the first word of the Gita) and mama (the last word of the Gita).
  • The meaning behind the number 18 (18 chapters in the Gita, 108,000 verses in the Mahabharat, 18 legions of the Pandavas and Kauravas in the war, 108 beads in a mara, 108 is (1) multiplied by (2 x 2) multiplied by (3 x 3 x 3), distance from Earth to Sun 18 times the diameter of the Sun and distance from Moon to Earth 18 times the diameter of the Moon).
  • Materiality (what you have) vs spirituality (who you are).
  • The reason why we have doubts and despondency in our minds and how to dispel them.
  • The essence of teamwork and companionship when fighting for Dharma: the Pandavas compared to the Kauravas.
  • Gratitude to the great thinkers and commentators of the Gita ("Sambhavami yuge yuge" meaning "I come into being from age to age").
