Arjuna said, “Now impelled by what, Krishna, does this man commit wrong actions involuntarily, as though driven by force?” (Bhagavad Gita, 3.36)
The Bhagavad Gita (‘Song of the Lord’) is a 700-verse scripture that is part of the Hindu epic, the Mahabharata. It guides and teaches us how to live a joyful life, in the midst of difficulties, sorrows and the unsolvable conundrums that life brings us.
These sessions, covering Chapters 3, 4 and 5, will continue our study of the Gita. We will start with a review of what we have covered so far in Chapters 1 & 2 and then go on to explore the teachings of Karma, covering topics such as:
- What are action and inaction? How does understanding them help us in our quest for happiness?
- What is the right way to act?
- What is renunciation?
- How can we act with renunciation while in the midst of our ordinary, everyday world?
- What is the role of our sense perceptions in the pursuit of wisdom?
He who, having totally given up attachment to actions and their fruit, no longer depends on the world, and is ever satisfied, does nothing at all, though fully engaged in action. (Bhagavad Gita, 4.20)
