2.17 - 2.18 Fight Skillfully

15 min - Talk


James recites and translates verses 2.17 - 2.18 of the Gita. Krishna imparts that our essence is undying consciousness and imperishable, and encourages us to fight and engage with our whole being. In Chapter 2, James sings "Bella Ciao" to illustrate that when we have the courage to stand up for what we believe in, nothing is ever lost, and to let your life be celebration of truth.

I like thinking of this "fight" as "engage", and yes Yoda is one of my favourite Star War characters, he is small in stature, not agressive, a great fighter when he needs to be, physically, and a great teacher.  And that when you die there is a residue of your time here that lives on, that can benefit others.  The flower at the top of the mountain.  Beautifully put, thank you so much James !
