How to Start A Bhagavad Gita - Self Study Group
1. Talk to few like-minded people in your friend and neighborhood circle about the idea of starting a Bhagavad Gita Satsang/Study group and arrange a meeting with the spiritually inclined people and decide time, place, and how often the group should meet.

Evenings and weekends are usually preferred time. The meeting place could be a local school, temple/church, conference room of an office building, or a public library.

You can meet at home if the spouse co-operates and she is also interested in Bhagavad Gita Study. The frequency of the meeting could be once a month, twice a month, or every Saturday/Sunday. The duration of Satsang should be one to 1.5 hours.
2. Few short Bhajans (3 to 4 only) should be included in the beginning or towards the end of Satsang. Guest speakers may also be invited if possible.
3. Select a Bhagavad Gita book that has verses and/or explanation in English and local language and is easy to understand by all.

Start with Chapter 1. Everybody reads one verse turn by turn. The person who reads the verses also explains what is his/her understanding of that verse. Then others who wish to participate in discussions are asked to give their explanation/ understanding and/or question or clarification.

Moderator makes sure that people dont start arguing/verbal fighting. After one verse is read and discussed, another verses is read and explained by another person or the moderator. Some people who do not want to discuss or feel shy about discussing, he/she should say "I will pass on". And the next person reads and discusses.

Water, tea or light Prasadam in the end may be served.
