Gita Talks in Johannesburg

Date : 02 Mar 2024

Chinmaya Mission Johannesburg hosted a six-day Jnana Yajna by Swami Abhedananda, from 25 February to 1 March 2024 on the topic “Karma Yoga – Unravel the Secrets” based on the third chapter of the Bhagavad Gita.

The people of The City of Gold (as Johannesburg is known), were indeed thirsty for the sweet nectar of Mother Gita, and Swami Abhedananda quenched that thirst, with his humorous, enchanting and enlightening talks!

Each morning began with the deeply thought-provoking class on Panchadashi, and the day ended with evening Gita classes where the essence of Karma Yoga was unveiled. The devotees were treated, each evening, to a sumptuous dinner, lovingly prepared by the Ashram families, and then had an informal Q&A session.

Between classes, enthusiastic and devoted families hosted Swami Abhedananda in their homes for lunch bhiksha, together with the Brahmacharins and the Ashram sevaks. The beaming faces of the host families clearly showed their love and support for Chinmaya Mission.
