Bhagavad-Gita with Shankara-Bhaṣya by Swamini Svatmavidyananda Saraswati

 The Gita is a timeless treatise of mokṣa, liberation of oneself from a life of becoming, known as saṁsāra. We will be studying this text verse by verse, with selected reading of the Adi Sankara’s commentary to best internalise the vision of Vedanta.
