Bhagavad-gita is a widely read which for centuries has been considered the heart of India’s timeless wisdom. The tutor of this course, Alan Herbert (Aisvarya dasa), believes that philosophy is something to be lived, and is not merely book knowledge. Since the end of the eighties, Alan became fascinated by the Gita, studied it and lived by its principles. He brings this enthusiasm for the Gita and its methodology to the course. This course explores five traditional themes in Bhagavad-gita: the self, matter, action (karma), time, and divinity. When we think about or explain anything in life, we do so with a specific issue, question, or concern in mind – in other words, we naturally thematize. Therefore, the thematic approach of this course is a more natural way for us to examine and to eventually explain the complexities of the Gita. The themes bring a focus to our studies and also act as a catalyst and method for further explorations of the text.
