Gita Jayanti Mahotsava 2020

Celebrating the advent of Srimad Bhagavad-gita

Akhanda Gita Parayana:

The auspicious day on which the Bhagavad-gita was revealed to Arjuna by Lord Krishna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra over 5000 years ago and who enlightened him about the ultimate goal of life, is celebrated as the Gita Jayanti. To mark this special occasion ISKCON Bangalore in association with various Bhajana mandalis and Satsangs across the globe organizes a special online event ‘Akhanda Gita Parayana’ – Online chanting of 700 Bhagavad-gita verses.

In the current situation of the pandemic in the country and in the interest of public safety, this year the recital of Bhagavad-gita will be held through 2 different online platforms from 5 a.m. onwards on Sunday, Dec 27th, 2020.  A total of 8 times of 700 verses of Gita chanting will be made as an offering to Their Lordships Sri Sri Radha Krishnachandra on the Hare Krishna Hill.

Glories of Chanting Bhagavad-gita

From Gita Mahatmya by Adi Shankaracharya

gita-shastram idam punyam, yah pathet prayatah puman
vishnoh padam avapnoti, bhaya-shokadi-varjitah

TRANSLATION
One who, with a regulated mind, recites with devotion this Bhagavad-gita scripture which is the bestower of all virtue, will attain to a holy abode such as Vaikuntha, the residence of Lord Vishnu, which is always free from the mundane qualities based on fear and lamentation.

gita su-gita kartavya, kim anyaih shastra-vistaraih
ya svayam padmanabhasya, mukha-padmad vinihsrita

TRANSLATION
Because Bhagavad-gita is spoken by the Supreme Personality of Godhead, one need not read any other Vedic literature. One need only attentively and regularly hear and read Bhagavad-gita. In the present age, people are so absorbed in mundane activities that it is not possible for them to read all the Vedic literatures. But this is not necessary. This one book, Bhagavad-gita, will suffice, because it is the essence of all Vedic literatures and especially because it is spoken by the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

sarvopanishado gavo, dogdha gopala-nandanah
partho vatsah su-dhir bhokta, dugdham gitamritam mahat

TRANSLATION
All the Upanisads are like a cow, and the milker of the cow is Lord Shri Krishna, the son of Nanda. Arjuna is the calf, the beautiful nectar of the Gita is the milk, and the fortunate devotees of fine theistic intellect are the drinkers and enjoyers of that milk.
