Geeta Chanting Yajna 2022

Bhagavad Geeta Chapter 2: Sankhya  Yogaḥ – Part 2

Date: March or April 2022. Exact date TBD

Venue: Online (Webex)

Chapter 2 of Bhagavad Geeta shall be the topic of study this year.  In the year 2020-21, we studied the first part of the chapter from shloka 1 to 39. In the current year 2021-22, we will study remainder of the chapter from shlokas 39 to 72.

Following is the summary of Chapter 2  sāṅkhyayoga. Overwhelmed with intense grief and confounded about his duty, Arjuna finally surrenders to Lord Krishna and requests His counsel. Lord Krishna, finding no means other than Self-Knowledge to rescue his friend and disciple from a despondent state, expounds on the nature of the Self and the nature of all beings. Lord Krishna systematically lays forth several reasons as to why Arjuna should not grieve and instructs him to stand up and fight the battle of Dharma! The core philosophies of the various systems of knowledge are expounded in this chapter.
