Bhagavad Gita: Meditation and the True Self

Beyond the Mat with Dr. Chris Chapple
Level 2 60 mins

Oops! Something went wrong on our end.

A lecture that retells Arjuna's big question: which is better, action in the world or renunciation of all action? Krishna replies in chapter five that one must act but as if doing nothing whatsoever, remembering always that the true Self is not the doer. By seeing Brahman in all things, one gains freedom. Noting that the self must help the self in chapter six, Krishna gives explicit directions about how to meditate and hence relinquish troublesome desires. He assures Arjuna that any sincere effort on the spiritual path will be rewarded.
