Friday: March 6th, 5pm to 8pm, Yoga Roots, Shelburne VT
What do you care for? What do you care enough about that you would live for it? How could you live a deeply caring life, without allowing others to care for what they care for? We will approach the inexhaustible gifts of the Bhagavad Gita first through a brief discussion, followed by a potpourri practice to celebrate embodiment, and finally some time to digest our experience through conversation.
Literally one of the great books through all of time, the Bhagavad Gita has influenced Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Emerson and Thoreau and countless others over centuries, and has been translated into virtually every language imaginable. Why does it have this appeal? How can it sustain this interest through generations?
In Stephen Mitchell’s translation one reason may be the claim that without the practice of yoga comes ”confusion, weakness of memory; weak memory—weak understanding; weak understanding—ruin.” Isherwood is a little more stern, he translates it as “you miss life’s only purpose.”
