Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 17, Intensive Retreat, Ladakh, May 2014

A Series of 12 videos in English on Chapter 17 of the Bhagavad Gita.

This chapter discusses in a profound and beautiful manner ways for individuals to initiate personal transformation by presenting a model of three gunas or qualities- namely sattva, rajas and tamas. It also makes us see nuances of 3 gunas as applicable in having sraddha (faith), danam (charity), yajna (prayers), ahara (eating habits) and tapas (religious austerities).

Lord Krishna, the master teacher, shows us that merely having faith or undertaking religious disciplines is not enough, one has to assess its value according to what world vision it prescribes, what is the intention of the person who is undertaking it and what is the result it brings to individual, community and humanity in general. Lord Krishna thus makes us see beyond the usual meanings of charity, religious disciplines, etc. and reveals the real spirit that has to be cultivated to grow as a human being so that we can, endowed with this maturity, gain ultimate freedom. .

Upadesa Saram was composed upon the request of the poet Muruganar who wanted a summary of the whole teaching of Non Duality. The text starts by explaining why any type of action cannot lead to the ultimate freedom the individual is looking for in life. While it explains how knowledge or self inquiry alone can solve the fundamental human problem of self inadequacy, it also expounds the role and scope of action, devotion, meditation in the pursuit of the vision of oneness. Upadesa Saram is thus an essential text to understand the direct and indirect means to gain freedom.
