The Teachings of the Bhagavadgita
by Swami Krishnananda

Publisher's Note

The Teachings of the Bhagavadgita is a series of ten discourses given by His Holiness Sri Swami Krishnanandaji Maharaj to the students of the Yoga Vedanta Forest Academy, Basic Course-9 during the months of May and June, 1982.

In these profound expositions, Sri Swamiji Maharaj takes the students of the Academy and all readers of this series step by step through the profound depths of the Bhagavadgita. These talks are a more condensed version of the much larger series of talks given earlier, which was published in 1980 under the title The Philosophy of the Bhagavadgita. Though there are similarities in the layout of both presentations, there is a sense of uniqueness expressed in these talks with the emphasis on instructional teachings, which all seekers of the truth will find very useful and a most wonderful compliment to the earlier published work.

Every attempt has been taken to keep the words as close as possible to the transcription of the audio recordings in an attempt to place the reader back in time, in the presence of its delivery in 1982. Each discourse is linked to the audio file.
