I know what you’re thinking: it’s the end of the first work week of 2016 and here’s yet another post telling me what to do to start the year in the right way. Time to continue scrolling through my News Feed? I think not. Because the Bhagavad Gita is about genuine transformation. From the invisible world within.
In 2012, Time magazine listed the top ten most-broken New Year’s resolutions (not in any particular order):

Anyway, check out this short video and make the Bhagavad Gita your trusty companion for the year — don’t forget to subscribe!
