Essay Assignment

The essay assignment for the Bhagavad Gita is as follows:

1. What are the 1-3 principles/ideas (“life skills” you may see them as) that resonate with you from the Gita? Why?

2. Order these 3 from which you will work on first, second, third over the next 6 months.

3. For each principle/idea what’s an actionable plan – 1-5 actionable things you can do in working on implementing these ideas.

4. Are there any principles you don’t agree with? Why?

5. Are there any principles you do agree with but would be things you would attempt to implement after items determined in #1 above.

Please keep in mind that in addition to making the Gita “actionable,” we will also come back to this essay as we complete the Sutras and discuss the 8 limbs. You’ll then work on creating your own code of ethics.
