Hari OM! Welcome to Chinmaya Mission TriState Center’s Bhagavad Geeta Study. Chapter 1 of Bhagavad Geeta shall be the topic of study this year. Chapter 1 describes the scene at the start of the Mahabharata war: the famous warriors assembled in both the wings, and the anxiety of Arjuna at the sight of his family, friends and teachers, in the mighty Kaurava army. It thus sets the background for Geetopadesham, the Krishna Cure for the Arjuna disease. It is this poignant setting at the start of the battle: the mental confusions and suffering caused by one’s incorrect identification, that makes Bhagavad Geeta a practical instruction manual for our everyday lives. Let us all chant and study Arjuna-vishada-yogah.
