Gita Sutram (pronounced as Sootram)
( Shrimad Bhagwad Gita )
[01 to 14 May 2015]
P.P. M. M. Swami Shri Pranav Chaitanya Puriji Maharaj
About the Topic :
On each chapter of the Bhagwad Gita, a summarising Aphorism can be composed.
Each such Aphorism ( Sootra or Sutra ), concisely weaves together the central ideas of its own chapter also consistently linking it to the preceding chapter(s).
Thus eighteen Aphorisms are composed to weave together the philosophical thought contained in the eighteen chapters of the Bhagwad Gita.
The speciality of the Aphorism (Sootra / Sutra) is that in very few words it contain the essential idea, and at the same time clarifies the diversity of its meanings and possibile interpretations.
The tradition of Aphoristic literature has come down to us from ancient times.
The BrahmaSutra, YogSutra and Narad BhaktiSutra are some of the very well known aphoristic compositions.
Continuing in this grand tradition and seeking inspiration from the great sage Ved Vyas the Gita Sutram is a modern attempt at producing aphoristic literature humbly undertaken by the present lecturer Swami Shri Pranav Chaitanya ji.
Keeping in mind the needs of the times, the composition of the sutras is kept clear and simple. The author hopes that this composition will help in understanding and enjoying the philosophy of the Bhagwad Gita.
