Hastamalaka Stotram and Gita Chapter-15.
Hastamalaka Stotra is a composition attributed to Hastamalaka Acharya, one of the four celebrated disciples of Sri Adi Sankaracharya, and is the rare composition on which the great Acharya himself wrote a commentary too. A teacher writing a commentary on disciples work. Such is the importance he himself gives to this profound text.
Gita Chapter 15 is the Purushottam Yoga. It is one of the smallest yet one of the most complete & profound chapters of Bhagwad Gita.
The shlokas of both the above texts will be provided to all the campers in the form of a Camp Book. Apart from these two main discourses, there will be sessions of Conducted Meditation, Bhajans, Chanting and Cultural Programs.
All the sessions will be in Hindi.
