Location: OCHS Library
Speaker: Prof. Gavin Flood
Date: October 25, 2013
Time: 14:00 to 15:00

Chapter 13 of the Bhagavad Gita is about the relationship between ‘the field’ and ‘the field knower’ which can be taken to represent the body and self or universe and God. Different commentators had different interpretations about this relationship. The two seminars will examine the commentaries of Sa?kara and Ramanuja, focusing inparticular on the opening three verses.
