Both, And: The Inclusive Worldview of the Bhagavad Gita
Thursday, February 16, 2012
Is God transcendent or immanent, beyond or within the world? What is the key to spiritual realization—a focus on Absolute Reality or Manifest Divinity? Which is better: active works or silent meditation? Wisdom or devotion? Join Dr. Christopher Key Chapple and Rev. O’Brian to discover how the Bhagavad Gita advances, and holds, teachings that at times seem contradictory but point to a holistic worldview that is liberating by its very nature. Dr. Chapple is professor of Indic and Comparative Theology at Loyola Marymount University and the editor of the comprehensive Winthrop Sargeant translation of the Bhagavad Gita.
