About This Event

Part 2 of our series will look at how the Gita presents us with a new set of underlying assumptions about the nature of reality. We will explore topics like Metaphysics, the concept that “reality” may expand past what can be seen or measured, and Theology, and how their presence emerges in the Bhagavad Gita.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How the Gita’s metaphysical conception of reality works... and how it can change the way we see the world
  • How the Gita’s concept of God is different from western monotheism
  • What makes the Gita’s philosophy exist beyond the structure of religion

Those who register for this workshop will receive The Yoga Ladder, an excerpt from Hari-kirtana’s forthcoming book, Journey Into The Bhagavad-gita.
