Call to Register

The Bhagavad Gita is recognised as one of the most important scriptures of yoga. Called the cream of the Vedas by Swami Sivananda, its teachings are universal and sublime. It addresses directly the often complex notion of duty and how to take action in the face of fear, doubt and indecision. The Bhagavad Gita has helped countless seekers on the spiritual path find deeper meaning in their daily lives.
