BHAGAVAD-GITA DISCOURSES + KIRTANS
BHAGAVAD GITA DISCOURSES + KIRTAN
EVERY SATURDAY, 5:30 PM
Please join us this Saturday, April 28, 2018. His Grace Dayananda Prabhu will give class on Bhagavad-gita as It Is starting with verse 15.20. Volunteers will recite verse 7.7 in Sanskrit and English.
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Saturday evenings Atma-Nivedana das (Atma) and Subhangada dasi (Subhie) teach how to hear and chant sanskrit names for God, especially known as Krishna, in kirtan (accompanied by melodious and rhythmic music). Additionally, Atma teaches a systematic study of the Bhagavad-gita As It Is. Occasionally advanced devotees of Krishna are guest speakers.
Bhagavad-gita As It Is is studied according to an ancient chain of teachers, starting with Krishna, and most recently His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, the founder-acharya of ISKCON (the International Society for Krishna Consciousness). Classes are on fascinating topics including karma, reincarnation, the soul, the material energy, God, time, and the relationship between the soul, the material energy, and God.
Atma and Subhie's program at 26 Second Avenue started in January 2011 and is meant for all, regardless of one's familiarity with the subject matter. Free admission to programs, but donations are welcome.
