How Can the Bhagavad Gita Help Us During the Pandemic?

with Swami Asokananda, E-RYT 500

February 21, 2021

Over the past year, we have navigated life during a worldwide crisis—a pandemic. The pandemic has affected every aspect of our daily lives, in ways both big and small.

The ancient yogic scripture, the Bhagavad Gita, also takes place at a time of crisis—an impending war. A crisis is a time to learn about ourselves and how we respond under pressure.

Swami Asokananda will share the benefits he is receiving from the Bhagavad Gita at this time, exploring:

  • How to keep the mind steady through difficult challenges
  • How to lessen a sense of loneliness and isolation
  • How to accept what is while maintaining love and compassion for those who are suffering

Live session with Swami Asokananda at 10:30 am–12 pm ET.

You will have access to the video recordings for 8 weeks after the program ends, until April 19.

In addition, you will have access to the Ashram’s Live Hatha Yoga classes at 5 pm ET and access to an online social community to connect and communicate with other participants about this course.
