There is a man named Esa that has been covering Master's God Talks With Arjuna live on his internet radio show. He is just finishing up book one soon to be in book two. I have really enjoyed listening to the show and it is another great way to study the Gita. The show runs for 2 hours. You can stream it through iTunes or another audio program that you may have. It is a live show and no repeats or downloads so you'd have to catch it live.
6-8 pm Pacific
9-11 pm Eastern
Go to the website and click listen shortly before the show comes on, you should hear music streaming through your audio player. When his show starts, it will sound like an asian flute playing over etheric music.
-thanks to Ellyn
This is a funny one. Our Guru has been recognized as a figure of the vegetarian
Nice video to watch:
Thanks to Hélène
My partner and I have created a video of our Guru, as the Nature Boy....to
video footage and photos that are available on the internet.
The composer of the song, Eden Ahbez, was a student of Yogananda, and he wrote an article on mysticism for Self Realization magazine in 1948. In fact - it's been widely rumored that the song Nature Boy was written about Master. (A direct disciple has said so.)
I hope you enjoy the photographs and film footage of our Guru - set to the music of the song Nature Boy, from our recent cd "Dharma Buds".
2008 SRF Tour
Scriptural Study Group
As you are aware that, Guruji, has offered us all the techniques we need for salvation and it is up to us to follow them. Brother Chidananda in the Convocation 2006, on the topic "Balancing Our Material and Spiritual Goals" stated Guruji's program:
2. Right action or service,
3. Physical exercise,
4. Study the teachings,
Amongst others we need to make renewed efforts to study the teachings. Study
is one of the pillars of these teachings. Sister Nanita in question & answer
session of Convocation 2007 said that everything we need is in the Bhagavad
Gita, the Second Coming, and the lessons. Keep reading and studying. Get his
knowledge inside so when you need it, it will be there.
Guruji has given us two beautiful scriptures – the splendid commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita and the Bible. Guruji says that the entire knowledge of the cosmos is packed into the Geeta. Wherever one is on the way back to God, the Gita will shed its light on that segment of the journey.
We have formed this study group to encourage us all to have a group study of
As a member of YSS/SRF, this invitation has been extended to you.
Please join us in studying these holy scriptures and use this forum to discuss doubts, and motivate each other in regular scriptural studies.
Please restrict your postings and discussions to the 2 books only...
1. God Talks With Arjuna (GTWA)
2. The Second Coming Of Christ (SCOC)
A member can make an effort to read minimum ONE LINE, (Maybe at random) from the scriptures and IF he/she thinks its an important point then share it with the group.
One can read a paragraph (Maybe at random), and IF he/she thinks that the 5 line paragraph has 2 lines worth sharing or 1 line or the entire paragraph worth sharing, then please feel free to share accordingly.
The idea is to make the "Scripture Reading" a daily habit.
Of course, sometimes, if you didn't have time to read and hence could not post, its ok, too..:)
