The first six chapters have been classified as the Karma Yoga section as they mainly deal with the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the Ultimate Consciousness through actions. The middle six chapters have been designated as the Bhakti Yoga section as they principally are pertaining with the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the Ultimate Consciousness by the path of devotion. The final six chapters are regarded as the Jnana Yoga section as they are primarily concerned with the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the Ultimate Consciousness through the intellect.

I have picked up copies of the Bhagavad-Gita many times in the past, but found the knowledge somehow locked away from my ability to truly comprehend its deeper meanings. This seminar blew the door wide open. Jeffrey wove the fine threads of yogic knowledge and devotional wisdom together in an unforgettable and life-altering way. I didn’t want the series to end!
