Gita Jayanti - Advent of the Bhagavad Gita on December 2, 2014

3:17:00 PM By RG

Over five thousand years ago, Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna, discussing the fundamental principles of life. The Gita lucidly explains the nature of consciousness, the self and the universe. It contains both the essence of India's spiritual wisdom and the answers to questions that have been posed by philosophers for centuries.

Today, that same Bhagavad-gita has been translated to numerous languages and is read by millions of people around the world, revered in academic circles, and studied by spiritualists of all backgrounds.

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 marks Gita Jayanti, the day when Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna. We will be celebrating this occasion by reading the entire Gita in Sanskrit and English, separately. The reading will begin at 6:00pm and will take approximately two-three hours, which will be followed by a vegetarian feast.

Please join us on this most auspicious occasion with your whole family!

Festival Schedule (subject to change):

6:00pm: Sanskrit reading will commence in the temple room, English reading will begin in Srila Prabhupada's Quarters
8:00pm - 8:30pm: Arati and Kirtan
8:30pm: Vegetarian Feast will be served
