Course Objectives and Rewards
The primary aim of the Bhagavad Gita Course is to make life glorious by following the ‘Gita-way’ accessible to anyone who yearns for it. It provides a holistic, insightful coverage of the entire text in a lucid and simple style. It provides inputs for continuous improvement, and in the modern context, it becomes a practical manual to live a transformed life of goodness and greatness. This Bhagavad Gita Course is indeed the proverbial ‘philosopher’s stone’ transforming our lives from being 'reactive' to becoming 'effective'.
This Course aims to harmoniously blend the subject matter of the Bhagavad Gita, with the subjective disciplines of spirituality. Thus, besides the thematic and textual study, it encourages contemplation. The two go hand in hand. Together, both will enable you to understand, internalise, and actually live by abiding to the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita. It effectively enables you, in the most endearing way, to actualise your immense potential and to tap into your innate strengths. The true reward for diligent study is the transformation of the student’s life from some sort of an obligation to an exuberant celebration.
The Bhagavad Gita Course is authored by Pujya Swami Tejomayananda. Pujya Swamiji is a master of Indian spiritual literature. He is a renowned teacher of Vedanta and an author of many commentaries as well as independent texts on Vedanta and Bhakti literature. This course indeed offers the crystallised, experiential wisdom and insightfulness of Swamiji, in a style characterised by clarity, depth, and profundity couched in the comforting style of simplicity, compassion, and accessibility. It bears the same mark of understated elegance and excellence of which Pujya Swamiji is a living embodiment.
Mahatma Gandhi said: “The Gita is the universal mother. She turns away nobody. Her door is wide open to anyone who knocks.” This encapsulates precisely the universal nature of the eligibility criteria for this course. CIF welcomes anyone who wishes to bring about a qualitative improvement in their way of life to take up this course. Though Sanskrit verses are provided for further reference, knowledge of Sanskrit is not required, as the medium of instruction is English
