Nehru Centre Event: How to Understand the Bhagavad-gita
Nehru Centre Event

8 South Audley Street
London, W1K 1HF
A talk by Dr Nicholas Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
The Bhagavad-gita is widely known as one the main sacred texts of the Hindu tradition but precise understanding of the message it conveys remains elusive, as is demonstrated by the widely differing interpretations of its meaning. In this talk, we will consider the ways in which the Gita seeks to offer a reconciliation of differing concepts, including Yoga, Samkhya, devotion and dharma and is able to emerge with a coherent revelation that is central to the contemporary Hindu tradition.
