A Psychological Webinar Inspired By ‘The Holy Geeta’

Date : 14 Dec 2021

On the occasion of Bhagavad Gita Jayanti 2021, Atha Centre for Psychotherapy organized a special webinar on “Discover 7 Potent, Psychological Mantras from the Bhagavad Gita”

The unique webinar was conducted by Asira Chirmuley, director of Atha and a sevika of Chinmaya Mission, and Lakshmi Sivaraman, an intern at Atha and student of M.Sc Applied Psychology at Chinmaya Vishwavidyapeeth.

It was a heartfelt tribute to Shri Krishna, Bhagavad Gita as the essence of Eastern psychological wisdom and to the commentary by Swami Chinmayananda, titled ‘The Holy Geeta’.

The session started off with an explanation about Gita Jayanti, why it is celebrated and what makes the Bhagavad Gita such a special scripture for seekers and therapists alike. Asira and Lakshmi shared that they held ‘The Holy Geeta’ commentary as their sole inspiration for this webinar.

Through the webinar they successfully blended Asira’s psychotherapeutic expertise and wisdom with Lakshmi’s budding enthusiasm and experiential perspective of Indic spiritual wisdom, thereby giving the audience the following 7 powerful Mantras for holistic well-being:

1) Introspection
2) Sadhana
3) Integrity
4) Equanimity
5) Acceptance
6) Satsang
7) Connect with the Divine!

The positive feedback from the viewers indicated that the webinar was a huge success. The takeaways from the session and link to download the free ebook of ‘The Holy Geeta’ were emailed to over 1000 people by Atha Centre for Psychotherapy.

The Bhagavad Gita is a scientific guidebook for mental well-being. This webinar was a significant step in making the Indian psychological community give it a good thought which will lead to greater discoveries in the future.
