Gita: 2.20 - 2.29 Recitation

10 min - Practice


James leads us in a call-and-response of verses 2.20 - 2.29 of the Bhagavad Gita. In verses 20, 22, and 29 we encounter a different kind of metre—with longer quarters and more syllables. He repeats those verses back twice, whereas for verses 2.21 & 2.23 - 2.28, he repeats back once.

Follow along with us with the attached PDF transliteration of Chapter 2. James begins chanting verse 2.20 located halfway down on page 18.

About This Video


What is the significance of the different metre?  Is it more of a descriptive narrative?  Whatever its purpose I really like it - it seems to me to be of a slower rhythm, and when I listen without looking at the text it always takes me by surprise
