As many of you know, India has a very ancient wisdom tradition with a huge pyramid of books. BhagavadGita sits at the top of this pyramid. It has inspired many great philosophers, poets, leaders, and even scientists.
Gita contains teachings of the Upanishads, which are dialogues exploring the reality of the world (Total) and I (the individual). Gita too is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna, the great warrior.
Yoga is the main topic in Gita. Most of the 18 chapters of Gita are centred on only one theme: Yoga. Therefore, to know what Yoga truly is, one has to study the Gita. It talks about two life-styles which help one prepare for self-knowledge.
Arjuna’s war, in many ways, is a metaphor for the conflict that lives in every human mind. Lord Krishna’s teaching replaces it with clarity and freedom.
Arvind Pare teaches Yoga Philosophy in Mysore. He lived in ashrams for 14 years learning Vedanta from his teacher Swami Dayananda Saraswati of Arsha Vidya Gurukulam.
In this time Arvind Pare has studied Bhagavad-Gītā, Upaniṣads, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and several Vedānta texts.
Arvind has masters degree in Engineering and Business Administration from USA where he spent 12 years. His effective use of language and adherence to traditional methods of teaching allows him to communicate most complex concepts to his students, who range from beginners to yoga teachers.
