Friday 15th December - Gita Jayanti - Reciting Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad-Gita, the ancient sacred text is considered a perfect summary of all Vedic philosophical teachings outlining the fundamentals of Yoga, Unity with The Supreme.

The Gita was spoken by Lord Krishna Himself to His best friend Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, 5,000 years ago. The Bhagavad-Gita, literally means "The Lord’s Song" and is a conversation between Krishna and Arjuna but meant for the whole world’s benefit.

On the anniversary day (or close to), devotees gather to recite all 700 verses together remembering this sacred conversation. It's a wonderful opportunity allowing participants to gain greater incites into this sacred wisdom text and a wider understanding of the flow of transcendental knowledge within.

We are holding our Gita Jayanti this Friday 15th December (the last Friday program of 2023) starting promptly at 19.00. Together we will read the english translation only (for the sake of time) and it usually takes around 2-3 hours with a good pace and no distractions. Please note - we won't have time for our usual full prasadam (blessed food) feast, but we will have snacks.

If you have a Bhagavada Gita please bring it along to read with us.

We look forward to seeing you there!
