AGM and The Gita, a conversation with Parul Jani

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Blake's reaction to and rendering of the Bhagavad Gita, first translated into English in 1785. Hindu and Western theology.


In 1785 the Bhagavad Gita was published for the first time in English by the
East India Company. Through one of Blake’s lost drawings The Bramins (‘the
subject is Mr Wilkin translating the Geeta’) we know Blake read this first
translation by Charles Wilkins, yet the argument of The Gita reappears in
Blake’s work in a curious and contrary form. How Blake read this great work
of philosophy illuminates how he transformed everything he encountered.
Parul Jani spent seven years in India studying the ancient Vedas and now
teaches the philosopy of Vedanta to international audiences.

The AGM will immediately precede this Talk.
