    Ep. 4.06: Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 v. 41 - 43, Drona's Test & Arjuna the Eunuch

    Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 v. 41 - 43, Drona's Test & Arjuna the Eunuch: Welcome back after a months break while we focused on creating the new Shala space, Samjiva Nilayam. Thank you for your patience and support. It is an exciting time coming back together. Today, we tell a couple of stories: Drona's test demonstrating the profound value of concentration, and how Arjuna's curse to become a eunuch becomes a blessing. In the Gita verses, we talk about how the divine is single-minded while the demonic is enamored with the multiplicity of creation losing sight of the foundational essence within things. Enjoy.

    Ep. 4.05: Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 v. 37 - 40, The Birth & Killings of Krishna

    Ep. 4.05: Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 v. 37 - 40, The Birth & Killings of Krishna

    Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 v. 37 - 40, The Birth & Killings of Krishna + The Yoga of Knowledge (Sankhya): In this episode, we hear about Krishna’s birth by Devaki & Vasudeva with the ominous prediction spoken from  the sky (Vahni Akasha - Ākāśa) that he would be the one to kill his uncle, the  insidiously evil Kansa (Kaṁsa), king of Mathura. All this as  background  description to the first verse of mantra Krishna Ashtakam (Krishnashtakam Kṛṣṇāṣṭakam) which references the killing of Kamsa &  his demonic henchman, Chanura (Cāṇūra). In Bhagavad Gītā verses we wrap  up the Sāṁkhya perspective (Darśana) and begin the teachings about yoga  - which are summed up in a word, “Equanimity”. Please take a peek and   hear it for yourself.

    Ep. 4.04: Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 - The Yoga of Knowledge (Sankhya), v. 30 - 36

    Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2, v. 30 - 36 - The Yoga of Knowledge (Sāṁkhya): In this section Sri Krishna winds down the teachings on the true nature of creation and the individual, and reminds us that when the wind is at our back, when the tide is in our favor, when the window of opportunity is open, we must seize it. These are the times when our natural talents produce the most results for us, and we mustn't allow fear or confusion to undermine us. We also discuss some of Arjuna's superior feats of valor: his battle against  Indra & the gods at Indraprashtha and his battle with Shiva at Vijayawada where he was blessed with the divine weapon Pashupatastra.

    Ep. 4.03: Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2 - The Yoga of Knowledge (Sankhya), v. 19 - 29

    Bhagavad Gita Ch. 2, v. 19 - 29 - The Yoga of Knowledge (Sāṁkhya): What is the true nature of creation and the true nature of the individual. That is the essential preliminary teaching that Krishna gives to Arjuna in the face of his utter despair about the impending war with his family. How do we understand the opportunities presented to us in a way that gives us the inspiration to act with our full faculties.

Yoga

Having spent some years studying and practicing yoga with David, I’m so thrilled to have this podcast as a new format and way to learn. From Sanskrit and yoga sutras to postures and breathing, David’s unique and well-versed perspective on the 8 limbs of yoga is something everyone with a thirst for knowledge and understanding will benefit from.
