The Rubin Museum screens documentary on Bhagavad Gita
Yesterday, I attended a screening of a documentary entitled The Bhagavad Gita at the Rubin Museum in NYC. I generally tend to be weary of these types of efforts, but had a good feeling about this one as my friend Gadadhara Pandit Dasa, the Hindu Chaplain at NYU and Columbia, was a speaker in the documentary and was also present for the following Q&A. My gut was right - the documentary was well done, and instead of presenting ludicrous interpretations that unnamed Hindu “scholars” tend to offer, it presented the Gita with a deep sense of respect and dignity.
