(Weekly event) Aug 09, 2019 to Jan 10, 2020 (ended)

Amma says the Bhagavad Gita is a "celestial song that awakens the sleeping soul." Join us on Friday from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm for this illuminating class with Br.

We are currently studying Chapter 11, but all are welcome to join regardless of their familiarity with the text. Bhagavad Gita books are available for purchase at the class.
