Jaya Guru Datta

As you all know Gita Mahayagna Program was initiated per the vision and blessings of our beloved Parama Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidanada Swamiji. As we all know the Bhagavad-gita is universally renowned as the jewel of India's spiritual wisdom. Spoken by Lord Krishna, to His intimate disciple, Arjuna, the Gita's seven hundred concise verses provide a definitive guide to the science of self-realization. No other philosophical or religious work reveals, in such a lucid and profound way, the nature of consciousness, the self, the universe and the Supreme. Sankaracharya, the profounder of advaita philosophy, acknowledged this in his Gita Mahatmya. He said that Krishna, the expert cowherd boy, extracted the essence of Vedas and Upanishads (which is compared to a cow) and presented that Nectarian milk for our benefit.

According to Scriptures just by chanting the Gita once, you will achieve the piety accrued from donating cows in charity to worthy recipients. If you read Bhagavad-gita daily, you will get the benefit of performing ashvamedha sacrifice.

 

On the occasion of Gita Jayanthi we are planning to conduct Bhagavad Gita Sampoorna parayana on Dec 2nd, 2017 at Durga Mandir , Route 27, Princeton, New Jersey.  On the day of the event we are going to have around 40 students (mostly kids) recite the entire Bhagavad Gita (all 18 chapters) from memory!! This is a fabulous feat and deserves all our support and appreciation. The event will start at 3 PM and end by 7 PM.

 

Mahaprasadam will be served after the event.

 

Let us all mark our calendars, participate in this rare event and get Pujya Sri Swamiji's blessings.

Sri Guru Datta
