Happy Gita Jayanti —The teachings of Bhagavad Gita
Happy Gita Jayanti! Today is the beautiful day that we celebrate the Bhagavad-Gita, literally the song of God. It is the exquisite 700 verse universal teaching on life and truth and on Yoga, the ultimate purpose of our life — to re-unite with the Divine. So many non-Indian and non-Hindu philosophers and scholars have also extolled the wisdom and insights the Gita offers on who we are and how to live. The Bhagavad Gita is conversation between Bhagawan Krishna and Arjuna about life purpose, dharma and duty on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, and is the guidebook for karma yoga, gyan yoga and Bhakti yoga. Whatever your religion and whatever your culture, the Gita will have something special for you!
