Thematic Explorations of the Bhagavad Gītā: a close reading of how various themes unfold and develop in the Gītā towards the intensification of our loving relationship with Kṛṣṇa.

First Satudays | 11:00am-1:00pm

Every 1st Saturday, here at the Berkely Temple, Cogen Bohanec Phd student from the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) will host a lecture on the Bhagavad-Gita.

Here is his Bio: Cogen Bohanec has studied the Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava tradition for nearly a decade, both academically and as a devotee. As a PhD student at the Center for Dharma Studies (CDS) at the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) in Berkeley, his dissertation research involves constructive Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇava eco-theology. Cogen has translated Sanskrit literature for over eight years academically, with over five years at UC Berkeley, and has studied both Yoga and Sanskrit in India. He holds a MA in Buddhist Studies from the Institute of Buddhist Studies (IBS), has worked on translating parts of the Pāli Canon, and has spent nearly two decades teaching a variety of Eastern Religions (Yoga, Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, etc), physical yoga, and Shotokan Karate.

We are pleased to welcome Cogen and Hope Bohanec and the rest of the GTU cohort to ISCKON Berkeley to bask in the purifying vibration of the Bhagavad-Gita. First class will begin April 1st; from 11am-1pm.  If you are as serious scholar bring your notebook and study materials, or if you just want to absorb some Krsna Katha you are more than welcome to sit and hear.

Hare Krsna.
