Exploring the Bhagavad Gita
Led by Dr. Jai Singh
In the Reading Room on Fridays from 3-4pm
The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most revered spiritual texts of India,
and played an important role in the spiritual development of both Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.
Dr. Jai will present the Sanskrit verses one by one, with word by word explanations,
as well as the explanation of each verse in relation to the chapter it appears in and the text as a whole.
In 1961 the Mother gave the adesh to Narad to bring down a new music. She said that one must go far above words and bring down the pure Music. Mother told us to sit in a circle and have no preconceptions as to what we would sing but to be silent and let the music descend in us. The OM Choir aspires to bring down the New Music for the New World in a collective body. We sing only OM, the creative and effectuating Word, after starting with warming-up and voice exercises by Narad.
