The Bhagavad-gita course covers the entire content of the Bhagavad-gita, the most important text on yoga, spoken by Krishna some 5100 years ago.

The Yoga Sutras course goes through every sutra of the text, with translations and explanations based on Giridhari’s own highly rated published book, “Revolution”. Please note that this course is currently being produced, with classes already available and new classes becoming available every week.

The Bhagavad-gita study is based on the remarkable work of Giridhari’s spiritual master and Harvard PhD, Srila H.D. Goswami, in his Comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad-gita. Learn in detail each of the important topics of the Gita, with practical applications to transform your life, making it brighter, more focused and more joyful.


This complete study of the Bhagavad-gita is composed of 25 classes in video,
 and also MP3 audio, all made available in an exclusive online classroom, 
where you can watch or hear at any time, as many times as you want.

  • Introduction
    In this introduction of the course, Giridhari Das talks about his experience with the Bhagavad-gita and how it changed his life in the mid-nineties, as well presenting his spiritual lineage. He then explains how the course is going to work and starts with a general introduction to the Guide to Bhagavad-gita. The focus then turns to the description of the background of the Gita, its history and the Vedic cosmology behind it.
  • Purusha and introduction to the Gunas
    The first half of the class is dedicated to the topic of “purusha”, the term used to describe the eternal personal nature of who we are, the soul. The nature of the self is described, and the topic of reincarnation discussed. The second half of the class is dedicated to introducing the topic of the “gunas”, the modes of material nature, a key concept of the Indic view of reality.
  • The Power of Your Lifestyle Choices and Intro to Karma
    The first half of the class is used to finish the topic of the gunas, with emphasis on the power of your lifestyle choices—such as the type of food you eat, what kind of entertainment you pick, the people you have in your life, and how they massively affect your consciousness and thus your further options in life. Then the topic of karma is introduced, explaining the key point of how karma is generated and what karma really is.
  • How Karma Works and Intro to Yajna
    How and why karma binds the person is explained, with a focus on how to act with your mind in the here and how, in doing your dharma. The need to become detached from the result, allowing you to focus on doing your very best is explained. Then the topic of yajna is introduced with an initial explanation of what it means to offer your work, offer your dharma, as opposed to superficial religions offerings.
  • Yajna, Part 2 – Different Levels of Offering, Understanding the Spirit of Gratitude
    We examine different levels of offering from the downright evil to the divine. What different kinds of offerings do people in different influences of material nature make? What are the Devas? What is the difference between Devas and God? The beauty of being aware of where all our gifts come from and the spirit of gratitude is emphasized.
  • Yajna, Part 3 – Expanding Consciousness and the Difference Between Good and Spiritual
    As we go deep in the study of the meaning and practice of yajna, we study the difference between mundane goodness and true spirituality. Topics covered included the difference between religion and spirituality, the rational explanation of the why it’s natural to engage in yajna and a discussion on the spirit of bhakti, devotion.
  • Yajna, Part 4 – Impersonalism vs Personalism and the 3 Levels of Reality
    A thorough explanation of the difference between the impersonalist and personalist spiritual view is given. The personal aspect of God (bhagavan), with the concept of the different abodes of God, with their different forms, associates and mood is presented, with an explanation of the three levels of reality: material life, dream life and transcendence.
  • God, Part 1 – Introduction to the Topic of God
    We begin our study of how God is portrayed in the Gita. We discuss the difference between the concept of God in the history of in the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions and that of the yoga path, and the reasons why so many in the West are weary of anything related to God. We then look at two aspects of God in the Gita: God is one and God as the source of all.
  • God, Part 2 – God is Not Angry or Jealous
    We start by emphasizing that devotion is one of five main avenues of perfection in yoga. With lifestyle choices playing a major part, that means there are six separate avenues of endeavor in yoga. Only one of them is bhakti, devotion, and involves God. Thus, those who are not willing or ready to activate their devotional spirituality have plenty more to learn and practice. We discuss three important qualities of God as seen in the Gita: 1) there is zero punishment for not worshiping God, what to speak of mistaking doctrinal points—God is not jealous or angry, 2) God respects everyone’s free will and 3) God loves everyone equally, in full reciprocation.
  • God, Part 3 – Vibhuti Explained
    We cover one of the most extensive topics in the Bhagavad-gita: vibhuti. These verses describe how everything comes from God and is in God, or the glory and power of God, as a means to understand the very concept of God for those with no previous knowledge or understanding of the topic.
  • God, Part 4 – Avatar and The Difference Between God and Soul
    We explain the concept of the avatar and how it fits into the previously explained three levels of reality. Then we go deep into the Sanskrit of the Bhagavad-gita to show the different terms used to differentiate the soul from God.
  • God, Part 5 – Rupa, the Forms of God in the Bhagavad-gita
    We finish the God section by exploring the deep and conceptually difficult topic of understanding God’s body, His form—rupa in Sanskrit. We take a close look at the famous Universal Form of God in Chapter 11 and how that differs from His two-handed form.
  • What is Yoga, Really? Part 1 – History, Jnana, Bhakti and Mindfulness
    We step back and look at yoga as a whole in light of the 3T Path, seeing all its parts and its history. We start with the concept of mental map and jnana. Then we mention how bhakti springs from jnana. The major focus of the class is the study of mindfulness, with a focus on the inevitable pains of letting the mind drift to the past in lamentation or the future in superficial desires, what we call the Paradigm of Reality vs the Fantasy Paradigm. Then we begin the explanation of dharma, of finding our essence and purpose.
  • What is Yoga, Really? Part 2 – Dharma, Inner Peace and Lifestyle
    Continuing our look into 3T Path view of yoga as a whole, we carefully study all 7 dharmas, or purposes, in relation to our 7 chakras, and the concept of how dharma is the basis for all-day-long yoga practice. We then describe the avenue of perfection of inner peace, where we take the time to describe how the cortex is hijacked by the amygdala, the animal brain, and how to avoid that, thus avoiding anger and irrational, violent behavior. We finish by explaining how lifestyle choices, the “guna choices”, determine one’s ability to work on the mind—on the 5 avenues of perfection.
  • Basic Definitions of Yoga in the Gita
    We take a look at what yoga means in its most direct sense in the Gita. We study first the very definition of the word. Then we go deep in the study of buddhi, showing how intelligence is identified as the key quality for progressing in yoga. Then we study yoga as samatvam (equality, equanimity) and lastly as sannyasa (renunciation).
  • Karma-yoga
    We explore the meaning and practice of karma-yoga, action-yoga. We cover the meaning of action, the need to act, the limits of renunciation, and the spirit of offering our lifeworks. We see how to make our life, our spiritual practice, in other words, how to live an enlightened life.
  • Jnana-yoga, Part 1 – Tattva, Vedas, Shastra and Krishna
    We now discuss jnana-yoga, knowledge-yoga. We examine how knowledge is presented in the Gita, starting with the important Sanskrit term, tattva, describing the three tattvas of yoga philosophy. We then discuss the concept of parampara—the chain of guru-disciple, the behavioral traits of a real yogi, and the qualities of a sincere student.
  • The Two Paths of Yoga
    We finish the discussion on jnana-yoga, pointing out the tremendous emphasis Krishna gives to the subject of understanding reality as a means to achieving liberation, on “seeing” spiritual truth. We then move on to the topic of meditation-yoga, explaining how meditation-only yoga is truly a separate spiritual path, the mystic powers which arise from it and how it compares with the path of enlightened, as we’ve been seeing in the Gita till now.
  • Bhakti-yoga, Part 1
    We begin understanding the position and meaning of bhakti-yoga, the yoga of devotion. We begin by analyzing why it’s the highest aspect of yoga, the meaning of bhakti and how yoga must cumulate in bhakti to be complete. We then discuss how devotion ties in with spiritual knowledge, how deceptively simple it is, and the need for constancy to attain true bhakti.
  • Bhakti-yoga, Part 2
    We describe the final nuances of bhakti-yoga and enter the multi-faceted descriptions of what liberation means in the Gita. We view analyze freedom from suffering and karma and then explore the positive visions of freedom to attain peace, divine grace and the brahman.
  • Liberation
    We finish our study by analyzing the final ways in which the perfection of yoga are described in the Gita, with focus on attaining the Supreme Destination, Krishna’s abode and nature. Then we describe how the Gita can be used in our day-to-day lives for massive self-improvement and self-realization.
  • Gita Flow - Summary of The First Six Chapters of the Gita
    We quickly summarize and flow through Chapters 1-6 of the Bhagavad-gita, giving us an understanding of the core message to be found in the descriptions of the soul and the different aspects of yoga.
  • Gita Flow - Summary of The Middle Six Chapters of the Gita
    We quickly summarize and flow through Chapters 7-12 of the Bhagavad-gita, giving us an understanding of the core message to be found in the presentation Krishna makes of Himself and bhakti.
  • Gita Flow - Summary of The Last Six Chapters of the Gita
    We quickly summarize and flow through Chapters 13-18 of the Bhagavad-gita, giving us an overview of the complementary information about the relationship of soul and God, about the Gunas, and the powerful its powerful conclusion.
  • Conclusion


I’ve found that my practice of the path of yoga was enriched by the study of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, to further deepen my understanding. I liked it so much, I published a translation and commentary of the Yoga Sutras! 

When you sign up, you’ll get access at no further cost to my new Yoga Sutras course, which I’m currently recording and giving my students access to, one class a week.



I absolutely love this course. Discovering the Bhagavad-gita has been an immense help on my daily spiritual path and Giridhari is a very good and thorough teacher, with a great sense of humour.


The Bhagavad-Gita course has been more than just a course but a spiritual journey which I have been following for over a year. 
 The books which are part of the course, “A comprehensive Guide to Bhagavad-Gita” and “The 3T Path” are easy to follow and understand. Giridhari is a wonderful teacher and guide, always available to answer questions and give detailed explanations to any queries. This course has been a life changing experience to me as it connects Bhakti-Yoga to everyday life. 
Truly grateful for this gift.


A great course from a great teacher! A "must have" knowledge for everyone who is on the path of Yoga, spiritual awakening and self-realization. Giridhari is an absolutely charismatic teacher, with a unique, contemporary approach which makes the understanding of deep concepts easy and enjoyable. A life-transforming course, that has helped me to become more mindful, centered, compassionate and connected to the Divine.


I love this course! Although I grew up with the Gita, I always found it difficult to understand and hence lost interest, but the way Giri simplifies everything and explains every text and verse so beautifully, it all made so much sense. 
Also, the fact that I could access the course in my own time, however many times, was perfect for me. What an amazing Teacher (Guru). Blessed to have come across this course. Thank you.


Mary Walsh
I have and I am still enjoying the course. So much has been learned or relearned. 
 There is a lot in the way of spiritual richness. 
 I tend to think that much has been lost not just in this life but lives past. And also depending on one's belief system. The course and the topic of study make sense. 
 Religion is a beautiful thing if it is used as guidance to bring people to God. The problem is when Religion is use as a tool for oppression and control.


Sneha Lakshminarayanan
Hi Giri, this course has been one of the many blessings I’ve got. Whenever I am down with daily challenges your videos have always uplifted me. 
Also, disciplining one’s life is a challenging task and listening to your classes and also the videos on YouTube it gives me a way to help discipline myself and my soul! Thank you , you are such a God send! Hare Krishna!


Kauselliah Peterhans
What I had learnt so far that all is not lost and still got time to turn the table. Giri is helping us to understand and provide us with wisdom at ease and ample time for contemplation. Merci.


Love the course and how it is presented. Ample opportunity for questions and discussion. Giri offers is an open and welcoming environment to learn and grow.


Maria Mercedes
Classes with Giridhari have been so worthwhile! He has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable, and always keeping it light! You are amazing at what you do!
 Your passion and dedication is beyond words! Thank you!


Dejan Ljatifi
Prior to coming across Giri‘s Bhagavad Gita course, I have studied various other spiritual traditions and philosophies, but I did not find such a beautiful, internally consistent philosophy and way of living anywhere else.
Most content about the Gita that I found online is also good. But I often had to immerse myself in figuring out culture-specific differences in the use of vocabulary and ways of storytelling which made it more difficult for me to grasp the actual teachings in the right context.
And that’s really where Giri shines, he delivers the invaluable life lessons from the Gita in such a way that’s helping me to understand and integrate them in the right context for my specific life situation.


Gavin Begbie
Finding your courses and reading your book 3T has had a profound impact on my life. Thank you Giri.


Geeta Bhardwaj
Thanks Giri, I am very fortunate to have found your group. You make it so easy to understand Bhagavad Gita with practical examples. Your group is very accepting. I have not been a regular but I am a part of your group and it is very comforting.


For seekers who want to learn about spirituality in its most ancient and complete form, to deeply understand the path of self-realization, the nature of the soul, God, reincarnation, and where we’ve come from and where we’re going.
For yoga practitioners who have realized that yoga is a lot more than just postures and now want to uncover the enormous potential of yoga and understand what yoga really is.
For yoga teachers who need to understand the tradition correctly to be able to help their students more thoroughly, creating an important differential in an increasingly competitive market.
For the curious and educated who want to understand the Bhagavad-gita, one of the most important books in humanity.

My name is Giridhari Das, or Giri for short. I am a self-help and spiritual teacher, author, and speaker. I have been practicing bhakti-yoga, the yoga of devotion, and working with self-development for over 25 years. My mission is to present the 3T Path, a transformative process to meet and transcend the challenges of life in the 21st Century, based on the knowledge of yoga found in both ancient Sanskrit texts and the latest research in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience. The 3T Path can be easily understood and applied as a means of self-improvement and self-realization in the world today.
I was born in Prague in 1969 as Gustavo Dauster, the son of a Brazilian diplomat. A few years later my family and I returned to Brazil, where we stayed until I was 9 years old. Then we moved to London where I lived for the next 8 years and studied at an American High School. Later I spent a year in the USA at Brown University and, after permanently moving back to Brazil, completed my degree in economics.
My career was just beginning when I was introduced to the bhakti path through a business contact. He spoke to me about Krishna consciousness, and his wife gave me a copy of the Bhagavad-gita As It Is. I was impressed with the knowledge I found there and I soon took up the daily practice (sadhana) myself.
In 1993, I met my spiritual master, Hridayananda Das Goswami Acharyadeva, and after developing a close relationship with him as his disciple I took formal initiation in 1998, receiving from him the spiritual name, Giridhari Das.
For many years, I participated actively in ISKCON in various positions of administration and leadership in Brazil. For 10 years I was in charge of the Brazilian branch of the BBT, the publishing house of the Hare Krishna movement, and after that I served for several years as president of the governing body of ISKCON Brazil.
Today I own and run a Yoga Resort called Pandavas Paradise in Chapada dos Veadeiros in the highland plateaus of central Brazil. I live there with my wife, Charana Renu Dasi (Rhiannon Dauster), and our two young sons, Bryn Govardhana and Macsen Krishna. I met Charana in Wales in 2007 while touring with my spiritual master. She has also been practicing and teaching bhakti-yoga since 1999.
I enjoy teaching students and guests at our yoga resort and at other spiritual centers in Brazil and around the world, and for many years I have been teaching and guiding people through email, but more recently I began to feel the need to reach out to a larger audience and in 2014 started a YouTube channel for that purpose. I have also published 4 books on yoga and self-realization.
The focus of my teaching is the 3T Path, a systematic, modern presentation of the ancient path of self-improvement and self-realization in yoga and Krishna consciousness. I developed the 3T Path after many years of dedicated study and practice, to share my experience and realizations in bhakti, and to address the needs and challenges of people today.
