Former Student’s Feedback:
Rishikesh Dilip Kulkarni
Former student of IISc, Bangalore M.Tech ( 2009- 2011); Presently: post doctoral researcher in the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland.
I almost regularly attended the Bhagvad Gita classes and my life was not the same anymore. The discussions were so profound that they changed me as a person for all good and led me conduct my educational duties in a more fruitful and purposeful manner. The purity of the atmosphere made me realize the impurities present in me and made me try to correct them. This institute in a true sense made me want to be a good human being.
Indian Institute of Science
The classes are so informative and attracts scientifically oriented minds as well as spiritually interested ones, for those who think about the purpose of life, the origin of our existence and where are we destined to reach. I have therefore been greatly benefitted by associating with BI, and at the same time realize the responsibility of carrying further BI's mission.
Indian Institute of Science
The course is very helpful in my life. The knowledge in the Gita is very hopeful, reassuring and inspiring. It gives a very nice perspective to view things and not get mentally entangled in problems. I try to remember some of the verses of the Gita when I face some difficulty. I used to feel very peaceful while listening to the Gita classes. The classes used to relieve a lot of stress for me. Overall the course was excellent. The powerpoint presentations and weekly summaries were very nice.
