Bhagavad Gita is a sovereign response of the inmost dimension of human personality to the crisis of emotions and paralyzing fears, when life’s course begins to stifle individuals beyond measure. Life on the earth is, at its best, beautiful and harmonious; but at its worst can be tormenting. Bhagavad Gita suggests that unless the great impersonality of the inmost Self is discovered, human mind will not be able to successfully course through the challenges and vicissitudes, preserving peace and poise for oneself, and extending welfare to others.
Why a need for the Global Bhagavad Gita Convention?
The Bhagavad Gita, or the Divine Song, takes place in the form of questions and answers between Arjuna, the foremost hero of an impending colossal war, and Krishna, an enlightened Master. The battlefield setting of the dialogue is an intriguing backdrop, which greatly enhances the relevance of the message to one and all. The Gita has practical lessons for each of us, providing deep insights on how to masterfully lead our life, conquering obstacles, real and imagined, and emerging victorious internally and externally.
To raise and deepen awareness of the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita and how to successfully imbibe them in our lives is the main purpose of the Global Bhagavad Gita Convention. The Convention will feature themes and sessions to address questions and topics such as:
What can I expect at the Convention?
- Key to enlightened action amidst multi-faceted interactions
- Integration of Jnaana (Knowledge), Karma (Action), and Bhakti (Devotion) for a life of abiding harmony
- Transcending emotional pulls and pushes of raaga-dvesha (attractions-repulsions)
- Key leadership guideposts and lessons for organizational leaders
- Cultivating qualities of stability, clarity, and decisiveness - three pillars of leadership from Bhagavad Gita
