It was a five days programme, conducted by Swami Sri Krishnananda ji. 22 devotees from Chandigarh, Delhi, Punjab, UP, Haryana, W.B. and MP attended the programme. One SRF devotee was from Russia.

The main objective of this retreat was to develop a deep interest among devotees to pursue the study of the Bhagwad Gita scripture through GTWA because the same would help them in their spiritual practice as taught by Guru ji.

On the first day, the programme started with Gita Chanting and opening satsanga. Gita Chanting and satsangas were conducted by Swami ji on all the days in the forenoon. Satsanga focused on Gyana Yoga, Raj Yoga, Karma Yoga and Bhakti Yoga based on the commentary of Guru ji as given in the “God Talks With Arjuna”.

Devotees were asked to study, individually, some specific chapters of GTWA and note down their doubts and questions.  In the afternoon daily, Swami ji answered various questions/ doubts submitted by devotees.

During the day, Swami ji emphasized upon the practical application of four Yogas in our day to day life. He said that none can escape activity (Karma Yoga) and discrimination or wisdom to select the right activity comes from Jnana Yoga. It is the Raj Yoga which teaches us quality of balanced living. He stressed upon the need for constant introspection of whatever goes on in our life.

Bhakti Yoga leads the devotee on a spiritual path with the assistance of a Guru. Swami ji disapproved the idea of spiritual robots and drew our attention to various measures which would inculcate devotion in us—like music, observance of rituals, japa, fasting and practicing selfless love.

After dinner, devotees enjoyed a video show on Mahbharata focusing on the dialogues between Lord Krishna and Arjuna.

There were also Bhajan sessions on two days which gave a very inspiring and devotional touch to the whole programme.

Besides, energization exercises and meditation (group and individual) were done every day, both in the morning and evening.
