The ancient yogis knew that the body is limited and taught yoga as a way to realize lasting tranquility and life satisfaction. One text used was The Shreemad Bhagavad Gita: The Song of Love. Chidananda Jaganath will be discussing this 18 step journey to inner peace based on the newly published commentary on this original book of yoga.

The original text in the Shreemad Bhagavad Gita: The Song of Love was written over 5000 years ago and contains the original mindfulness practice. This latest publication of this work contains the English translation with a fresh commentary given by Paramahamsa Vishwanda on each verse. Using modern day scenarios, today’s seekers and practitioners of yoga find applicable wisdom for such things as: meditation, overcoming life challenges, the practice of ahimsa (non-violence) and the benefits of vegetarianism.


After graduating from college with a business degree, Chidananda was hired at a major investment banking firm. While there, he realized that his true dharma was not in the world as an investment banker, but as a monk devoted to his spiritual growth and the service of others. Chidanada has spent the latter part of his life at Shree Peetha Nilaya under the guidance of Paramahamsa Vishwanada. He has been studying the teachings of the Gita from the Vedic traditions of India, gaining deep insight into its hidden meaning and timeless practices that are particularly relevant to our current world. As a former investment banker, he uses experience to take the ancient teachings and skillfully apply it to modern living.
