Friends Event: Understanding the Bhagavad-gita

Dr Nick Sutton
Birmingham Friends Event
Saturday, 14 July 2012 -
6:30pm to 9:00pm
Meeting House of the society of Friends
1 Hamlet Road, Hall Green,
Birmingham B28 9BG

A talk by Dr Nick sutton of the Oxford Centre For Hindu Studies.

The Bhagavad-gita is one of the best known and most important of all Hindu texts; it is written in a relatively simple style of Sanskrit and contains only 700 verses, yet it has an incredible depth of meaning and its thought displays a profound complexity.  In this talk we will try to establish exactly what the Bhagavad-gita is saying and how it is able to reconcile divergent strands of thought based on the concepts of karma, dharma, bhakti, moksha and yoga.
