Through the Eyes of Knowledge is an informal, open discussion wherein the Bhagavad-gita’s timeless wisdom is translated into the language of our lives here and now. Through the traditional practice of discussing spiritual teachings in an assembly of seekers and seers, we experience relief from the grind of modern life, while gaining ground on spiritual goals. Sessions begin with Gita teachings, then inquiry and discussion take us the rest of the way.
