My Bhagavad Gita
Please Note: I am a Rabbinic Jew, an independent minded Breslover, a member of Der Alte Weg Chassidus, and a committed Zionist. My presentations on the world's religions are not Avodah Zarah -- i.e. the Halachic prohibition of Jews observing the religions of the other nations. Some people are born into a culture, religion, etc. and never question what they receive. I respect that. Others of us challenge and question what we have been taught, seeking ever deeper understandings. If religious/spiritual attainment is as important as all the religions say, then certainly it is a virtue to study and understand what one believes, not as parrot who repeats what has been said, but as an intelligent person whose beliefs and faith are rooted in knowledge. I know what I believe, and I know why I believe it.
I have invested most of my sixty plus years to studying the world's religions as part of my personal quest for attachment (devekut in Hebrew) with the Holy One, Who Alone is Blessed. I hold a Masters degree in World Religious Studies, an Interfaith counselling degree, and various ordinations and certificates from diverse religious systems. More than book learning however, I have endeavored to understand the religions "from the inside," as the practitioners do. I have found much good in the Sanatana Dharma, as well as some negatives. The same is true of all religions of course, including my own. Here I will be sharing some of my information on the Sanatana Dharma including my translation from the original Sanskrit of the "Bible of India," the Srimad Bhagavad Gita.
