Chapter 6 – Atma Samyam Yogah—The Yoga of Meditation (4 hrs 36 min)

(MP3 CD version)


The Bhagavad Gita, the most sacred scripture of the Hindus, is a portion of the great epic work the Mahabharata, which was composed by Sage Vyasa many centuries before Christ. The Bhagavad Gita presents a dynamic picture of spiritual life. It does not advocate a passive withdrawal from the world in search of spiritual peace and perfection. Rather, it beckons the soul of a person to fight the “battle of life” heroically.
