Advent of Bhagavad Gita - Gita Jayanti - Dec 21, 2015

1:31:00 AM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav)

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.

Monday, December 21st, 2015 marks Gita Jayanti, the day when Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to Arjuna. The festival will feature the presence of Vaisesika Prabhu, so it will surely be a special evening that you will not want to miss!  Please join us on this most auspicious occasion with your whole family!
