Bhagavad Gita & Stoicism: Overcoming Desire The Bhagavad Gita contains ideas that can also be found in Stoic philosophy.

The Bhagavad Gita often referred to as the Gita, is a 700-verse Sanskrit scripture that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata, and the Gita is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Krishna. Stoicism is predominantly a philosophy of personal ethics informed by its system of logic and its views on the natural world. According to its teachings, the path to happiness for humans is found in accepting the moment as it presents itself, by not allowing oneself to be controlled by the desire for pleasure or fear of pain, by using one's mind to understand the world and to do one's part in nature's plan, and by working together and treating others fairly and justly Join our LIVE STREAM NOTIFICATION SQUAD to be notified via email when a stream starts: http://subscribe.basedshaman.com/live-stream Become a Channel Member today!
