The voice of the Gita:

How does the Bhagavad Gita speak to me?

2nd – 5th of September, 2021 (Online)


Open for anyone who has sincere interest in Vedantic teachings of self-knowledge.

“2020 has intensely confronted us with global challenges, uncertainty and instability. How can we find peace and equanimity within, come into alignment with our true self and find new responses to the world around us? What is it that we can contribute in 2021? Let us come together for a deep reflection and delving into the profound sacred Vedantic teachings” – Ammaji

Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita is an ancient philosophical work that contains the foundations of the Indian spiritual world and it is a precious treasure trove of approaches and inspiration for every spiritual seeker. Just as Arjuna receives encouragement and guidance from Lord Krishna on the battlefield, we can be encouraged and guided by Ammaji’s profound explanations. Her words are able to touch our deepest and highest soul and make it possible to let the clarity and wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita be felt in us.


Parts of this workshop are dedicated to introduction of the Sanskrit alphabet in writing and pronunciation. Swamiji Siddhabodhananda, who has been a renowned Sanskrit and Vedanta teacher for more than 45 years, will introduce the language that can give us additional depth and intuitive access to this ancient knowledge through chanting of Vedic sounds.
