In October 2015 Glastonbury Positive Group were treated to a deeply moving evening of words, music and art with Ranchor Prime as he led us on a powerful journey through some of the enlightening stories of the Bhagavad Gita, to the accompaniment of music and art.
We are absolutely delighted to welcome Ranchor again to offer this profound experience to all those who would love another opportunity to hear some of these stories and more, as well as for those who were unable to attend the evening in October.
This evening will offer an introduction to the incredible work that is The Bhagavad Gita, carefully translated by Ranchor to make it fully accessible to everyone. Whether you are new to The Gita or know it well, Ranchor tells the stories in a way that is poignant and inspiring, and he accompanies them with exquisitely illustrated slides, live music, and powerfully enriching mantras for us all. There will also be discussion.
The Bhagavad Gita is an ancient channelled message. The conversation is between the Warrior and Krishna. Although the teaching is set on a battlefield its subject is the search for inner peace. The conflict we all experience in life is an inner one, between our eternal self and our temporary covering of mind and senses. Peace lies in resolving this conflict.
Once we realise that we are eternal beings life on Earth takes on a whole new meaning. Our journey leads to opening our hearts to eternal love – this journey is the essence of Krishna’s teaching.
Ranchor Prime is a writer, artist, ecologist and teacher. He has written an edition of the Bhagavad Gita in simple English which makes the teaching accessible to all. His other books include Hinduism and Ecology, Cows and the Earth and Prince of Dharma: The Life of The Buddha.
He is owner of Fitzrovia Press and lives in Glastonbury.
***Please note that this evening is on THURSDAY 2nd JUNE (a Thursday instead of our usual Wednesday evenings!).
