Any surplus left will be donated to ArshaVidyaCenter.org, or ArshaVidya.org, which are nonprofit organization that help to spread this message. If you prefer to make tax deductible contribution please write a check payable to Arsha Vidya Center. Shri Vijay Kapoor who is the main teacher at this center holds classes in Milpitas; you can view details at ArshaVidyaCenter.org.

For few weeks we viewed some DVDs. In speaking on Karma Yoga and Sanyasa Pujya Swami Dayanandaji has given an excellent introduction to the main message of the Bhagavad Gita. I encouraged you to take notes so that you can refer to the teachings as often as necessary to actively participate in discussions on the subject matter. After we have viewed these we will have a basic background with which to embark on a more detailed systematic study of the subject. These seven discourses are transcribed and available for review at
