Gita Jayanti 2017

November 29, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

You are invited to celebrate Gita Jayanti on Moksada Ekadasi, the day on which the Bhagavad-Gita was spoken by Krishna to Arjuna on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra.

Celebrations will include Arati, Kirtan, Special Yagna (Fire Sacrifice), Recitation of the Bhagavad-Gita, and Prasadam.

You are welcome to sponsor a chapter of the Bhagavad-Gita for $108 and offer oblations in the Yagna! Please contact the following devotees for further details:
Madhupati Dasa – (973) 519-3374 | Devakinandan Dasa – (917) 626-1348 | Simheshwar Dasa – (732) 690-3147

The Bhagavad-Gita is a conversation between Arjuna, a supernaturally gifted warrior about to go into battle, and Krishna, his charioteer. In the course of giving Arjuna all manner of spiritual and material advice, Krishna explains karma, the self, the Supreme Self, the purpose of yoga, the difference between our self and our material body, how our environment affects our consciousness, and how to attain the perfection of life.

The Gita appears as a central chapter in the Mahabharata, the history of greater India. It is the essence of Vedic knowledge and one of the most important books of Vedic literature.
