Volume 1 of a 4 volume set. Chapters 1-4 of discourses spanning at least 3 years of classes and covering all 18 chapters of the Bhagavad Gita, Babaji Bob Kindler, follows the tradition of Sutradhara. The sutradhara is simultaneously the connecting thread running through the verses of scripture and the one who makes the connection for the listener. In this fashion, Babaji has highlighted verses in each chapter that are especially significant teachings of the Blessed Lord, Sri Krishna, for this day and age. In his own unique style, Babaji extracts the teachings of these verses and translates them into systematic methods for removing obstacles to our spiritual growth, attaining self-mastery, recognizing the traits of illumined beings, and more. Though some verses receive more attention than others, all verses of the Gita are included in this series.
