The Mahabharata

Jeffrey Armstrong

Join us on a spectacular adventure as Vedic scholar and master storyteller Jeffrey Armstrong leads us through the Mahabharata, India’s greatest epic poem. Through this rich and many-layered story, you will re-live the classic period of India’s history when the avatar Krishna appeared on earth. The Mahabharata is written on three distinct levels: the physical, the psychological, and the transcendental. Jeffrey brings the story alive, skillfully explains the characters, the hidden meanings, and initiations within this 5,000-year-old yoga classic.

Offered as 5 satsangs and 4 workshops.
