Swami Paramarthananda Lectures

During the last week of April, Pujyasri Swami Paramarthananda delivered a series of lectures, over seven days, in Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Coimbatore, on the subject of Uddhava Gita. It was actually a continuation of the lecture series begun a few years ago.
Uddhava Gita is the very final teaching of Lord Krishna before He gave up His worldly body and went back to His abode. It is a teaching conveyed to Uddhava, who was a close friend and a strong devotee of Lord Krishna. This Uddhava Gita shows many similarities to Bhagavad Gita which was a teaching from Lord Krishna to his good friend and cousin, Arjuna. Swamiji pointed out these key aspects of Uddhava Gita and then did a recap of the first few chapters of Uddhava Gita (already covered in the previous years before Covid). He then picked up the thread from the fifth chapter. Undoubtedly the attendees felt lifted up to a highly philosophical and serene plane throughout these lectures. Such was the power of the subject and the spiritual radiance of Swamiji.
