    LI, Wk 15: Three Excuses for Avoiding the Spiritual Journey

    Why do we become apathetic about spiritual practices? Rational excuses can disguise deeper causes. Bhakti practices, in particular, challenge us to confront our material discomforts—and often it is easier to pretend we are “One”. We should take care not to avoid the very relief we seek. [BG 4.9, 4.10] Topics include: - An explanation of "ego" or How material ego differs from the spiritual self - Why people reject the idea of an eternal self - Why people reject the idea of God as a person Additional topics: - Meaning of the chant Govinda Jaya Jaya - The Nine Stages of Bhakti - The Bhagavad Gita as a non-sectarian text Class notes available at www.gitawisdom.org/podcast Questions?
