Amrita TV's Bharatadarshanam Achieves A Landmark 2000 Episodes

On March 19, 2013, 12:49

Amrita TV’s Bharatadarshanam, a rejuvenating spiritual discussion on the Bhagavad Gita that strives to interpret the sacred verses and explore its relevance in the contemporary world, has reached the laudable milestone of 2000 episodes. On air continuously for the last 8 years at 7.30am Monday to Friday, it is one of the longest running shows on Amrita TV that started its telecast on the very day the channel was launched into the viewer’s orbit.

 

The Gita is a small but cardinally important section of the massive Mahabharata epic, consisting of just 700 compact verses organized into 18 chapters, but these contain the very quintessence or core of India’s ancient scriptural wisdom. It is a highly complex philosophical allegory that deals with the strife between good and  evil, taking place on several planes, on a literal level in the fratricidal battle unfolding on the great plains of Kurushektra and on a figurative plane in the moral conflicts constantly being waged in the mind of every human being. Mr.Thuravoor Viswambaran, who had been conducting the show since the first episode annotates the verses in his inimitable style, explains the intricate texts by placing it against the backdrop of the present day political and social milieu, footnoting it with cross references to Greek, Chinese and Egyptian texts to make it easily understandable to the viewers.
