“When doubts haunt me, when disappointment stares me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn Bhagavad-Gita and I find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow.” –Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

You can check her YouTube channel for more information about Bhagavad Gita: Here She describes herself as ‘I am a Hare Krsna devotee from Sweden. Bhagavad-gita is such a fantastic book, there are always new levels to appreciate. That’s why I wanted to take it here, to the Internet. English isn’t my first language, but since ours is a very international community, I wanted to make videos both in Swedish, my own language, and English, the language “Bhagavad-gita as it is” was written in. I’m not the only one reading Bhagavad-gita on Youtube, but we all have different approaches. I’d like to show that the Bhagavad-gita is open to everyone, that, although it is revered as the spoken word of God directly, it is also approachable, relevant and applicable in life’.
“Bhagavad-gita makes me think, makes me laugh and gives me motivation in life. I hope you’ll have as much fun with this as I do.” –Labangalatika devi dasi.
