Seminar on Bhagavad Gita – Saturday, April 30th 2:30 p.m. in Saraswati Hall. ALL ARE WELCOME!!
For ordinary Gruhastaas (householders) like us, should we follow the path of karma yoga or bhakti yoga to attain moksha (liberation)?
What does following the path of karma yoga (doing our duty and considering all the fruits of our actions as prasadam from God) and bhakti yoga (Cultivating total devotion to God and leading our lives in the name of God) really mean, you ask?
Have you always wanted to know about the Bhagavad Gita (which is considered to contain the blue print for dharmic – righteous – life), karma yoga and bhakti yoga, but never got around to it?
Well then! Come on over to the Temple and attend the Seminar on Bhagavad Gita and your queries will be addressed. This seminar is food for your mind and spirit!
Learned scholars such as Dr V. Rajarao Bandaru and Dr MG Prasad will talk about Bhakti yoga and Karma Yoga and will also answer all your questions about the Bhagavad Gita.
A group of children will chant chapter sixteen from the Bhagavad Gita. In chapter sixteen, Lord Krishna describes explicitly, explaining separately and in detail the divine properties, conduct and actions which are righteous in nature and conducive to divinity. Also He delineates the evil propensities and ill-conduct which are unrighteous in nature and which determine the unrighteous and which are antagonistic to divinity. Thus this chapter is entitled: Daiva-asura-sampad-vibhaaga yoga – The Divine and the Demoniac Natures Defined
