Over 5,000 years ago, just before the great war was about to begin, Arjuna went into a deep depression, foreseeing the horrible events to come. His skin burned, limbs quivered, his mouth dried up and he sat down on his chariot, leaving his bows and arrows aside.
However, this situation led Arjuna to ask some of the most profound questions that humanity has ever pondered upon. And thus emanated nectar called The Bhagavad Gita from the lotus mouth of Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Simply by hearing this knowledge, Arjuna became ecstatic and got such empowerment that not only he regained his composure but led his side to a glorious victory.
Thus in order to be happy in life, one neither needs to change his duty, occupation, place or people around him, nor is there any need to perform any mental or physical gymnastics. Following the footsteps of Arjuna, one should simply try to hear this wonderful scientific knowledge revealed by Lord Krishna, with great attention and humility.
Although human society has made rapid progress in the field of education, material comforts and economic development, due to lack of principles of proper human life there is a pin-prick somewhere in the social body at large, which is the cause of general decline in the moral character and ethical values. As a service to humanity we offer a very scientific presentation of the essence of the Timeless Vedic Philosophy, a 6-session foundation course on Bhagavad-Gita, in order to restore peace, friendship, and prosperity in the human society.
"We are trying to give human society the opportunity for a life of Happiness, Good Health, Peace of Mind and all Good Qualities through God Consciousness."
