Dear reader

The summer festival season is on and its been an exciting few months…kids are home and family and friends get together. For the last 60 days…we’ve been stationary in Vancouver and Jeffrey has been avidly working on his Bhagavadgita translation, with new discoveries each day on just how badly the Sanskrit has been mistranslated – but more on that in later months.

We are also preparing for the fall-winter touring programs which starts end of Aug. We look forward to reconnect with old friends we cherish, and to meet enthusiastic new students. Check our travel schedule and see if we are going to be in your area.

Full listing: view them here.

IN BRIEF: Jeffrey is scheduled to be in Vancouver, California, Corona, Los Angeles, Hawaii, India and Bali. Sorry the Bahamas was postponed to 2017 due to Jeffrey’s December India tour. 


FYI: Here’s an example of a clarified translation of an important verse in the Bhagavadgita:

This is from the ‪#‎Bhagavad‬‬ Gita Chapter 2 verse 13 which says: "Dehino smin yatha dehe...kaumaaram yauvanam jaraa....tathaa dehaantara praaptir.....dhiras tatra na muhyati......" Which is translated: "Just as a person grows in their 'deha' or physical body from childhood, to youth, to adulthood and then to old age, so at the death of the 'deha' (the burnable part), the 'dehi' or immortal self migrates to another deha (five element body). One who understands this process is not confused by these changes.... (From the forthcoming translation of "The Gita Comes Alive" by Jeffrey Armstrong) Note the double aa in a transliterated sanskrit word is held twice as long as a single a.

More infomation on The Gita Comes Alive can be found here
