Study the Gita with a group of friends in a home setting using comprehensive study notes transcribed from discourses given by Pujya Swami Dayanandaji.
This is an opportunity to really understand the Gita for the sake of full self–knowledge. Self–knowledge is the only stable basis for a way of living that is enriching, secure and happy.
The study of this peerless Vedanta text requires regularity, perseverance and trust. Doubts will be resolved by the text itself to reveal the complete Vedanta vision.
In addition, Swamini Atmaprakashanandaji will meet with the groups from time to time to respond to questions, and questions can also be put to HH Swami Dayananda himself on his UK visits.
