A must listen for understanding of Bhagvad Gita

I have listened to Swamiji’s lectures on YouTube and when I found out he has a series going on Bhagvad Gita, I have been more than happy to listen to his lectures and then read the actual text. Swamiji quotes a huge number of sources when he is giving a talk on any subject and his simple and lucid style keeps me engaged.

Life Changing

I had been searching for a way to get into Hinduism. Being a 24 year old in a metropolitan city, I was never surrounded by friends who were spiritual.
I had found this urge to rebuild my life, and after fitness, delayed gratification, focusing on my eating & my mindfulness, I had realised the last but most important key to my self improvement and development would be to find God.
Swami Sarvapriyananda’s an exceptional Guru, as he uses his life and experience to deconstruct and re-contextualise deep philosophical contexts. It is solely because of him that I am now an Adhvaitan. His lessons on Aparokshanubhuti have changed my life. I cannot find the words to show my gratitude. His teachings on the Bhagvad Gita are spell bounding.
I listen to this podcast every day as I meditate. Once in the morning, once in the evening.
This is the most important podcast I’ve ever come across.
