A classical interpretation for the modern mind

For centuries the Bhagavad Gita has remained the single most influential philosophical text shaping Indian thought and life. It addresses itself foursquare to the universal limitations each human being is confronted with : ignorance, sorrow and death.

The teaching of the Bhagavad Gita opens with the audacious statement that all these are illegitimate problems caused by ignorance about the real nature of the self. Drawing upon the essence of all Upanishads, Gita explains how the self, the atman, is limitless, indestructible, unborn. This knowledge, Brahmavidya, frees one from all sense of limitation. This is the principal teaching of the Bhagavad Gita.

Swami Dayananda’s is a classical vedantic interpretation of the Bhagavad Gita. Without getting lost in a rigid verse-by-verse translation, he plunges with great verve and energy into the central theme of the gita, unerringly picking and choosing key verses to highlight its message. A highly respected and very popular teacher of vedanta, Swami Dayananda succeeds marvellously in conveying the profundity of the Bhagavad Gita, unfolding its teaching with a style and clarity which will appeal to every modern mind.

Swami Dayananda

Swami Dayananda is an outstanding scholar and teacher of Vedanta who is held in high esteem by the academic and traditional pundit alike. Having extensively studied the Upanishads, logic and Sanskrit grammar under the guidance of various teachers, his deep scholarship lends great clarity to his teaching. In addition, his style and vivid communication skills establish a remarkable rapport with his audiences, whether it be gatherings of several thousands which regularly attend his talks in India or seminars at universities all over the world.

Swami Dayananda has conducted several intensive teacher-training courses in the methodology of Vedanta at his ashrams in Rishikesh, India, and Pennsylvania, USA. Many of those trained by him are now in turn actively teaching Vedanta. Swami Dayananda himself travels indefatigably to all parts of the world, teaching and lecturing, unfolding the universal message of Indian philosophy.
