Bhvagad Gita Chapter 2 - versus 20 thru 30 was discussed in the class.  In the previous class on Sept. 23rd, we discussed that conceptually human body is made up of Atma (soul) as the inner seed, covered by ego, mental body and physical body (senses) respectively.   Today, we continued the discussion on the physical characteristics of the soul.  Students read the versus 20 thru 30 and identified that soul does not have any physical characteristics.   Soul is invisible, indestructible and does not have any physical shape, mass or color. It resides in given body (animal or human) for a period of time. 

This was followed by the presentation on Discrimination by Milan Malhotra.  Students debated on the topic: "is discrimination an inherent human flaw".  Students recognized that there is fine line difference between actual discrimination and perceived discrimination due to lack of qualifications of an individual or group of individual.  Students also discussed on strategies on deal with discrimination.
