The Bhagavad Gita chanted in English & The Perennial Philosophy

The extract from the  Bhagavad Gita which, for me, summarizes the core mystical heart of all of the great world wisdom traditions ( & Perennial Philosophy) is;

“Like two birds of golden plumage, inseparable companions, the

individual self and the immortal Self are perched on the branches of the

selfsame tree. The former tastes of the sweet and bitter fruits of the

tree; the latter, tasting of neither, calmly observes.

“The individual self, deluded by forgetfulness of his identity with the

divine Self, bewildered by his ego, grieves and is sad. But when he

recognizes the worshipful Lord as his own true Self, and beholds his glory, 

he grieves no more.”

We now have both the text of the Bhagavad Gita in English  HERE and chanted in English by Kumuda HERE – what a story! –  (see video below).  Enjoy them together.  

Wonderful – what a gift from Kumada and Swami Nirmalananda Giri for those interested in the cause of interfaith understanding and Perennial Philosophy.
