Yogoda Society to hold online discourse on Gita today

Saturday, 12 June 2021 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

An online discourse focusing on the Bhagavad Gita would be delivered by Swami Smaranananda Giri, vice-president of the Yogoda Satsang Society (YSS) of India between 6:30 pm and 7:45 pm on Saturday. The discourse, which would be the first one in the series, would be aired live in English.

Swami Smaranananda would introduce the book ‘God Talks with Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita’, which is a new interpretation on the holy scripture from the Mahabharata written by Sri Paramahansa Yogananda.

Yogananda, author of the spiritual book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’, has explained the Bhagavad Gita with divine insight. In his commentary describing its psychological, spiritual and metaphysical depth, ranging from the subtle causes of daily thoughts and actions to the vast nature of the cosmic system, Yogananda has presented a detailed account of the journey of the soul to enlightenment.

 Swami Smaranananda would highlight Yogananda’s commentary through examples and short stories and explain how the Kauravas (bad tendencies) present within us hamper our spiritual progress and how nurturing the Pandavas (good tendencies) in the battle of inner Kurukshetra can finally defeat the Kauravas and achieve the ultimate goal of self-realisation.  Explaining clearly the balanced path of meditation and proper action (karma) described in the Gita, Yogananda shows how people can create a life full of spiritual perfection, peace, simplicity, and joy for themselves. 

Through an awakened intuition, they could figure out the right course to take at every crossroad on the path of life to determine what shortcomings are holding them back and what positive qualities are moving them forward and to recognise and avoid pitfalls along the way.
