I was very pleased that last week I picked up my Sanskrit translation.  When I went to Brazil I took a break from my weekly sessions and it has taken me far too long to back into the routine again

We are reading the Bhagavad Gita which is one of the most studied and translated texts in the history of world literature.  Coming from the post-Vedic India and considered to be the standard and universal work of the Hindu tradition and renowned as the jewel of India’s spiritual wisdom.
