The Gita is a treasure trove of practical tools for the spiritual life. In this in-depth course, Swami Gangananda will help you apply those tools to your own life, aided by Swami Sivananda’s powerful Gita insights.

The Bhagavad Gita is a dialog between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, which took place about 5,300 years ago on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. It is a universal gospel that appeals to all, irrespective of age, race, or religion. It has a universality that embraces every aspect of human action and that suits and elevates every stage of human development.
