Gita Workshop 2019

The Bhagavad Gita is the eternal message of spiritual wisdom from Ancient India. The word Gita means song and the word Bhagavad means God, often the Bhagavad Gita is called the song of God. This ancient text is written as symbolism to the following internal struggles: the battle between the morals of right and erroneous action, life and death, and the process of mastery over impulse. The plot of the book is a conversation between Lord Krishna and his pupil, Prince Arjuna. As Arjuna looks out on to the battlefield, he recognises that his opponents are his own friends, relatives and former teachers. This leaves him torn between his duty to fight for his side and having the blood of loved ones on his hands.
