ISKCON UK is organizing a free international online course called Think Gita based on the teachings of S.B. Keshava Swami Maharaj. The taster session starts today January 11th at 8 pm GMT, and the 4-week course begins on 1st February, every Thursday from 8-9 pm GMT.

Raja Mukunda, who is the course instructor, is the co-founder and heads the Think Gita project and has been teaching the Bhagavad-gita for four years. He said, “People purchase the Bhagavad-gita, but they don’t know how to understand it. There is a big gap. Think Gita was launched last year with 2,800 registrations where we taught the Bhagavad-gita to the world in a very dynamic way. This time, our target is to reach over 10,000.”

He added, “This flagship course will be in nine different languages namely English, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Dutch, Hindi, and German. We include bonus sessions with group reading and introduce chanting. After the course, people can/are encouraged to join Think Gita circles where people can also study the Bhagavad-gita in more depth in small groups and form a community with like-minded spiritualists and eventually become facilitators.”

 The course has four modules as follows:

1. Introduction- Discussion on how the Bhagavad-gita can make people THINK differently through spiritual instruction.

2. Hero’s Journey – how one can relate to Arjuna through a turning point in life and rise spiritually.

3. Summary of Bhagavad-gita: Redefining Life- This session looks at how all the top self-help books take inspiration from Bhagavad-gita and a complete overview of the book

4. Yogapedia- Discussion of all the yogas mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita, concluding how Bhakti Yoga is the crest jewel within the box of finding love.

5. Wisdom that breaths: How can we live and breathe the Bhagavad-gita in our daily life?

Emma Ellis, a participant in the previous Think Gita course, commented, “I loved how interactive and engaging the course was, although conducted through an online medium. The use of charts and different systematic graphics helped me take in the content much more easily. Also, the bridge between Gita’s philosophy and its connection to the modern-day world was continually emphasized most appealingly. There was a strong practical component of the course, which I found beneficial and meaningful.” 

Another participant, Steve Jacks, said, “The rich spiritual wisdom of Bhagavad-gita was presented in such a concise, crisp, and clear way, yet highlighting the key concepts in a truly practical format in such a short period. Each session simply brought about varied sets of beautiful nuggets of wisdom that only enhanced my curiosity to know more about Gita and elevated my eternal consciousness.”

Jessica Sharma, another participant from last year’s batch said, “Links to modern-day quotes/ideas which made the Gita feel so relevant – Keshava Swami taught Gita in such a practical way, which is easy to digest and understand. The integration of spirituality with practical insights for the big questions of life – everything was amazing, and a lot of knowledge was gained.”
