The truly ‘advanced’ is always a beginner. The opportunity to learn is everywhere.

The Challenge

Expand your knowledge.

The Project

I have studied parts of the Bhagavad Gita with teachers in workshops four times, and I have read the entire Gita by myself once. I find the text challenging and attractive. I have for some time desired to study the text deeper in a more specialized environment for longer than a weekend workshop. I have also been interested in learning more about Sanskrit beyond asana poses and general philosophical terms and ideas.

The Courses

I took an 8-week study course on the Bhagavad Gita.


I took a 3-week Introduction to Sanskrit course.


Both courses were held at The Bhakti Center in New York City. 


"Bhakti Center Community Groups are a great place to meet new people and develop lasting relationships. Together we explore truth through the eyes of timeless spiritual wisdom, share thoughts and realizations, express doubts, ask questions, and find inspiration and support on the spiritual path. In this course, we will meet for a series of 8 weeks and will be reading from The Bhagavad-gita."
