At the Atma Bhakti Yoga Center, our aim is to foster a community that nourishes the unity of the body, mind, and spirit. Our teachers seek to provide a nurturing environment to begin the journey of discovering what is already inside each of us.
We are excited to have as our guest speaker, Rtadhvaja Swami, who has been practicing Bhakti Yoga for over 40 years. He brings the Bhagavad Gita to life in a very practical and often humorous way. Because of our special guest, this weeks schedule is different the vegetarian feast dinner will be at 6:30 pm , & the kirtan will be at 7:00 p.m
Do you seek peace of mind? Have you ever asked the purpose of life or who you are? If so here is an invitation to discover the essential wisdom of yoga for living in today’s world. The Gita is a world text dealing with the mysteries of life. It gives us practical and applicable knowledge about the deeper meaning and goal of life – about what will bring us permanent, eternal happiness. The Bhagavad Gita offers a deep understanding of life relevant to the beginner as much as to the advanced yogi.
We begin with a delicious vegetarian dinner, followed by kirtan or musical mantra meditation, then read & discuss from the Bhagavad Gita. Copies of the Gita can be purchased from us.
