Uddhava Gita: Krishna’s Final Instruction

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
While the Bhagavad Gita is one of the most widely read classics in the world of spirituality, sadly its counterpart the Uddhava Gita remains overlooked by the majority. This course allows the student to walk down a previously unexplored path to understanding Krishna’s instructions on the purpose of life. Although there are parallels with the Bhagavad Gita, the context and approach differ: the Bhagavad Gita was spoken during the urgency of battle, whereas the Uddhava Gita was spoken prior to Krishna’s departure from this world.
Uddhava is a famous devotee and dear friend of Krishna, but even he could not understand why Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, had not prevented the destruction of His own dynasty. In this famous final conversation Krishna explains why the Yadu dynasty had to be destroyed, and in response to Uddhava requesting Krishna to take him back home, expounds the famous philosophy that is the Uddhava Gita.
The Uddhava Gita offers the reader philosophy, poetry, guidance, and ultimately hope for a more complete Krishna consciousness in which our lives are in harmony with our spiritual nature. Masterfully facilitated by Govinda das, this set of four seminars will examine the flow of the conversation, dive deep into Krishna’s instructions and their relevance to us, as well as examine famous pastimes such as the lessons from the 24 gurus, the teachings of Hamsa-avatara, and the song of the Avanti brahmana.
