The Gita for empowered living
Whether you consider yourself a singer or not, join in with Jane as she explores modern melodies for the Sanskrit verses of chapter 7 of the Gita.
Welcome to this session which is dedicated to helping you feel more empowered.
The aim of each session is, like a good meal, to 'feed' and nourish you with the taste of these pure ancient words. When you hear the words - directly spoken by a Teacher from the distant past, listen carefully. They have healing potential in them. When you sing them, you inherit the inherent light that is in each word and you become a part of that splendour!
Verse 10 translation:
Know Me, O Arjuna, as the eternal seed of all beings; I am the intelligence of the intelligent; the splendour of the splendid objects am I!
Jane will sing the words and then invite you to join in.
Verse 10 Sanskrit:
Beejam maam sarvabhootaanaam, viddhi paartha sanaatanam;
Buddhir buddhi mataam-asmi, tejas tejas vinaam-aham.
Beejam maam sarvabhootaanaam - repeat
Viddhi paartha sanaatanam - repeat
Buddhir buddhi mataam-asmi - repeat
Tejas tejas vinaam-aham - repeat
To conclude, Jane invites you to close your eyes and meditate on the sparkle of your own inherent light. Feel yourself becoming more settled and balanced, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Imbibe your mind with the affirmation: ‘I am the tree of wisdom. My roots are deep, my light is splendid’.
We shall finish this session with the three sounds of OM, followed by the three most potent words of the Gita: Om Tat Sat which denotes our aspiration to uphold the truth (sat) and the divinity within each of us.
