This clear presentation is suitable for yoga practitioners, yoga teachers and those who are interested in the profound wisdom and practical philosophy of the Bhagavad-Gita.
The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and The Bhagavad-Gita are the two texts considered by the masters of Yoga to be the foundation of all Yoga philosophy and practice. If your next step in Yoga teacher qualification is to learn to teach the knowledge contained in The Bhagavad-Gita, then this course offers you an easy and understandable presentation of this great text.
The Bhagavad-Gita is the tip of a transcendental iceberg, the peak of a mountain called the Mahabharata in the great epic history of India. Set in the mysterious and opulent Asia of 5,000 years ago, the 100,000 verse Mahabharata is ten times bigger than the Iliad and Odyssey of Greece combined. In eighteen chapters and 700 verses,the Supreme Lord Krishna who appeared on Earth at that time in history, explains to His cousin and friend Arjuna, all the most important truths of Yoga philosophy and practice.
Each of the 18 chapters reveals another aspect of Yogic learning and practice until finally Arjuna is restored to his original Divine consciousness. This same immortal text of the Bhagavad-Gita has inspired thinkers in India and around the world to find courage and face the challenges of life with spiritual grace and peaceful determination. In the words of Shri Krishna: “My dear Arjuna, armed with Yoga, stand and fight.”
The course can be taken for personal interest or for yoga teacher certification credit. VASA offers this training in the Bhagavad-Gita in three levels:
