              From the recitation of the Bhagavad Gita arises the desire to know its meaning. Thence arises the Knowledge (of the Self). From this Knowledge arises fulfillment. Hence an individual must recite the Bhagavad Gita. —Swami Tejomayananda

              The study of the Gita is the key to opening the vast treasure of God’s love for us. It starts with chanting, then studying, and over time, assimilating (embracing) that same love wholeheartedly and completely. Gita Chanting allows one to begin this journey here and now, and open themselves to the embrace of the infinite love.

              The children MUST BE AVAILABLE for the practice sessions scheduled by Yasodhara Somayajula for them to participate in this event. Please have your child(ren) practice at home once our practice sessions start.
