Welcome to Gita Talk: Self-Paced Online Seminar on the Bhagavad Gita. (Round 2)

September 25, 2011

Welcome!  We’re glad you’re here. Gita Talk is a self-paced online discussion of the Bhagavad Gita: A New Translation by Stephen Mitchell.

Gita Talk was created as a weekly online book club.  But now that it’s completed, you can just dive in and go at your own pace.  Each blog gives you the short reading assignment for the next blog, and all blogs remain open for further discussion.

Tell us what’s on your mind. Ask us the questions you were asking yourself as you were reading. Read other readers comments.  Engage in conversation.  We’re a friendly bunch.

You will always get a personal response from us. I’m always anxious to talk to anyone about the Gita.

For an overview of the Bhagavad Gita, a good place to start is:

Bhagavad Gita in a Nutshell:
Big Ideas and Best Quotations

See Yoga Demystified  for a more general but highly relevant introduction to Yoga philosophy.

Please be sure to let me know if I can help you in any way.
