Gita Class with Swami Shantamritananda Puri

Bhagavad Gita Class with Swami Shantamritananda Puri
(Weekly event) Jan 07, 2021 to Jun 16, 2022 (ended)

Gita class is paused while Swami Shantamritananda Puri is traveling abroad. Please feel free to review past classes on the MA Center Chicago YouTube channel in the meantime. 

Amma says the Bhagavad Gita is a celestial song that awakens the sleeping soul. This class is generally held weekly on Thursdays from 7 pm to 8:30 pm CT when Swamiji is here at MA Center Chicago, and class is followed by a short guided meditation. The class is held live in the MA Center Chicago satsang hall and is livestreamed via the MA Center Chicago YouTube Channel.
