Bhagavad Gita by Swami Paramarthananda

Dear All,

Humblest Namaskārams to all.

From today, we will start the course of Bhagavad Gītā, presented through talks by Swāmi Paramārthānandā.

Please note that, there is absolutely no substitute for face to face listening of the teachings, directly from a Guru. This method of Shravanam has been emphasised many times in the scriptures, as the best way of receiving Jnānam.

However this blog has been created for the sake of those of us, who do not have the luxury of being at the right time and the right place to be able to listen to the lectures by Swāmiji. His articulation and approach are so brilliant, that even subtle topics of Advaita can be grasped without much effort.

Wherever possible, every attempt has been made to transcribe the lectures verbatim. The main intention is for everyone to benefit from the wonderful teachings of Bhagavad Gītā and this blog is solely devoted for this purpose.

Please note that any inadvertent errors are attributable entirely to the blogger and profuse apologies are offered. However feedback and corrections are most welcome.

May Goddess Sarasvati bless us all with Her grace, in enabling us to complete our study without any interruptions.

Hari Om
