Chapter2 Part1 Hdr

Hari OM!

Welcome to Chinmaya Mission TriState Center's Bhagavad Geeta Study. Chapter 2 of Bhagavad Geeta shall be the topic of study this year.  We will study this chapter over a span of two years.

Overwhelmed with intense grief and confounded about his duty, Arjuna finally surrenders to Lord Krishna and requests His counsel. Lord Krishna, finding no means other than Self-Knowledge to rescue his friend and disciple from a despondent state, expounds on the nature of the Self and the nature of all beings. Lord Krishna systematically lays forth several reasons as to why Arjuna should not grieve and instructs him to stand up and fight the battle of Dharma! The core philosophies of the various systems of knowledge are expounded in this chapter.

Chapter 2 Lyrics:    Sanskrit     English     Sanskrit & English side-by-side
