The Bhagavadgītā is a timeless text which has been as much a source of inspiration for the householder as for the renunciate, as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago. In these series of lectures, Prof. B Mahadevan, who is a professor of management at the IIM Bangalore, gives us a bird’s eye view of this glorious epic, stressing on how the Gītā is not just a religious or spiritual text, but a fountainhead of ideas for life – to develop strength of character, work efficiency and spirit of service. It is a manual of practical vedānta, proponding the science of human development and fulfillment.
Prof. Mahadevan explains the structure of the Gītā, and gives an overview of each chapter, highlighting the important aspects of practical application. These lectures will be very useful for those who want to gain a basic understanding of the text from an authentic perspective.
These lectures are hosted in the website of the Practical Vedanta IIMB group. Vyoma Labs is now bringing the materials into this portal for the benefit of Samskrita enthusiasts. We thank Prof. B Mahadevan and the Practical Vedanta IIMB group for giving us the permission to host this course here.
