The Complete Yoga of Action and Knowledge

suryalila logo
The Bhagavad Gita is perhaps the most important text in Vedanta.  It’s one of the three main source texts: the Upanishads and the Brahma Sutras being the other two. It draws its main ideas from the Upanishads. It encompasses; Karma Yoga, Dharma Yoga and Jnana Yoga.  It is a dharma shastra as well a moksha shastra.  Shastra means a weapon, and it means ‘scripture.’  Why is the scripture a weapon?  Because it protects you from great suffering.  It’s a dharma shastra and a moksha shastra because it covers the two topics that are the subject matter of the Vedic texts; Karma Yoga and knowledge yoga, in other words; experience and knowledge. Bhagavad Gita, deals with the relationship between action and knowledge, so it’s got everything.  That is the beauty of it!

About Arlindo Moraes

 Arlindo teaches Vedanta under the lineage of James Swartz. His style of teaching is simple, clear and direct. Arlindo is a refined and gentle soul and the teachings are unfolded in a kind and loving manner. Arlindo was born in Brazil and in his twenties, after having had a challenging upbringing, he went to India and became a devote of Osho, and later spent time with H.W. L. Poonja in Lucknow. He was also strongly influenced by the teachings of Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadhatta Maharaj. After a lot of deep soul-searching, meditation and contemplation Arlindo realised his true nature and began to teach. However, it wasn’t until he was exposed to the teachings of Vedanta in the form of James Swartz’s book “How to Attain Enlightenment, that he knew he had found a whole and complete teaching methodology to actualize self-knowledge. Arlindo is a dedicated disciple of James Swartz and is endorsed to teach Vedanta in his lineage.
