Krishna speaks to Arjuna
Br. Shankara speaks on “Breaking Your Narrative.” Due to our karma, our DNA, our habits and tendencies — call it what you will — we seem to be caught in an onrushing and endless sequence of activities, sorrows, and joys. The scriptures call this way of life bondage.

In Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna explains why and how this illusory “narrative” of our life (which He calls Maya) has such a hold on us. He then offers His disciple Arjuna instructions on how to break Maya’s grip. Lord Krishna and others, including Amit Goswami, a quantum physicist, say there are specific steps we can take to interrupt and dis-empower the ruthless narrative that apparently drags us from lifetime to lifetime.
