THE BHAGAVAD GITA: Action and Devotion in a Complex World

with Sean Feit

The Bhagavad Gita is one of the core texts of the yoga tradition, and one of humanity’s most beloved and beautiful spiritual books. It contains practical instructions for yoga practice and daily life, meditations on the nature of God, and a deep exploration of the question of how to live a good life, framed as a conversation on the battlefield on the brink of a terrible war. We will read the whole Gita, in Stephen Mitchell’s accessible and poetic translation, discussing the “four yogas”: Karma, Jñana, Raja, and Bhakti, and wrestle with the challenging and powerful teaching on renunciation of the fruits of action.
