Daytime Gita Study Group
Keeping in view a large number of retirees and those who are at home, I will be starting a Gita study group at the Mandir on Tuesday’s starting on May 15th from 11am to 12noon, finishing up with the noontime Aarti.
The format will be informal as we go through verse by verse and look at word meaning to understand the vision of our great scripture. I hope the group to participate in Q&A and open discussion. Since Gita covers all aspects of our
life, even a brief exposure to this study no Matter where in the course can be very beneficial. I urge everyone to
come and join.
Please call or email me for any question or more info.
