About Sri Rama Gita
Do you want to fly to freedom?
Are you stuck in your life and feels like that silk worm that created its web from its own saliva and is now bonded and is lost?
We all feel throughout our daily life these lack and limitations with occasional fleeting moments of happiness and yearn for that permanent love, peace and freedom.
Well if you are seeking that bliss without even moving an inch from your current life situation then come and listen to this free public discourse by our own Swami Shrikarananda on Ram Geeta (a divine dialogue between lord Rama and his younger brother Lakshmana narrated beautifully in Tulsi Ramayana).
Lakshmana asks the lord; what is self knowledge, what is dispassion and what is this illusion (maya) and what is devotion? How can I be free from my sorrows, infatuations and delusion? These are some of our own questions and feelings in daily life, which we are confused about and are lost in our ignorance. Lord starts his answer by saying – I , mine , you and yours are the root cause of our sorrows and how to overcome these, please come and attend this divine yagna….
