Gita Talk–An Experiment in Online Book Discussion

Hi, Everyone.  I’m looking for a few volunteers to participate in an online book discussion.  We’ll read through the Bhagavad Gita together and discuss it on my Elephant Journal blog, with simultaneous posts to Yoga Journal Community.

All you’ll be committing to is reading the book and making a comment on each of my blog posts, which will come out chapter-by-Chapter about once a week.  (The book is short–only 205 pages.)

The discussion will, of course, be open to anyone,  just like any other blog.   But I want to make sure I have a core group of participants before I get started.

Please let me know if you’re interested.

I’m also interested in a really catchy name.  So far my favorite is “Gita Talk”.

  1. Can do Bob… I tend to read bits and pieces on a regular basis anyhoo!

  2. Great, Tobye. Thanks for your support. I think this could be really interesting.

  3. When does it start?

  4. What about “Gabby Gita” or “Gita Gabs”?

  5. Bhagavad Blowhole? -kinda’ funny?

  6. Hi, Brooks. I’ll give everyone two weeks to get the book and read the introduction (thru page 35). Then we’ll start by discussing that.

    In the meantime, I’ll be putting out a blog today to get everyone’s going in impressions of the Gita and what experience they’ve had with it already, if any.

  7. Hi Bob

    Just discovered your site, it’s fantastic! Would it be too late for joining Gita discussion? Gita Talk sounds good.
