Friends Event: Paths to Liberation in the Bhagavad-gita

Leicester Friends Event
Saturday, 3 March 2018 – 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre
Rothley Street, Leicester LE4 6LF

A talk by Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

In this talk we will explore the view that the Bhagavad-gita advocates a number of different paths to liberation from rebirth, including karma-yoga, raja-yoga, jnana-yoga, bhakti-yoga, and dhyana-yoga. We will then focus primarily on knowledge and devotion, looking at how the Gita explains these two paths and how it tends to draw them together. The question will be raised as to whether Krishna has a preference for one path over the others or whether he regards them simply as different roads leading to the same goal.
