gitajayanti 20156

The Bhagavad Gita is a transcendental dialogue between Lord Sri Krishna and His devotee Arjuna. Spoken at the outset of a great battle, it is an encyclopedia for humanity.

In contrast to the atheistic scientist’s purely physical (and hence incomplete) description of everything, Bhagavad Gita makes a distinction between the spiritual self and the material body.

The mind, intelligence and senses are discussed in terms of their strengths and limitations, and guidelines are given for their intended use.

Recite the entire Bhagavad Gita… in 5 hours!

Refresh your soul in the company of His Holiness Sivarama Swami & His Grace Gauri das. The entire 700 verses of the Gita will be recited, and chapter summaries will be presented. A fire yajna will be conducted throughout the recitation.

Gita Jayanti offers the opportunity to celebrate the appearance of Bhagavad Gita and to distribute this gem to many others. You are invited to sponsor Bhagavad Gitas and distribute them to your friends, family and colleagues. Alternatively the Temple on your behalf will place them in schools, universities, hospitals or prisons through its various programmes.

Please note that due to limited space, a maximum of 2 persons per sponsorship can participate in the temple room recitation, (1 person for £51 sponsorship). Additional space will be provided in other rooms equipped with video feeds.
