Gita Jayanti – A significant day in India

by Subhechcha Ganguly

The Bhagavad Gita, a collection of conversations between Shri Krishna and Arjun, is regarded as the sacred text of Hinduism and is cited by individuals from all walks of life.On the Ekadashi Tithi of the month Margashirsha’s Shukla Paksha, or the impending Mokshada Ekadashi, this holy text was first written. Gita Jayanti is another name for the day. The Gita’s 5159th birthday will be commemorated this year.

Significance of Gita Jayanti

The birth of the Hindus’ holy book is commemorated on Gita Jayanti. The holy text is a collection of conversations that Arjun and Shri Krishna had while fighting at Kurukshetra.The Gita is a collection of 700 verses that makes up the Bhishma Parva of the renowned Indian epic Mahabharata.The brave Pandava warrior Arjuna first lacked the bravery to face his adversaries, who were his cousins and loved ones because they were individuals he grew up with, on the battlefield. He had to participate actively in the conflict, though, in order to restore Dharma and put an end to their wrongdoings. And later, after learning about his Karma, which Lord Krishna teaches to him in the revered Gita, he was able to control his emotions. As a result, Arjuna was able to develop and condition his mind.

Puja Vidhi

Aim to awaken two hours before sunrise, or during Brahma Muhurat. Don clean clothes and take a bath. Pray to Shri Krishna and Arjun while presenting the holy book with rice and flowers. Fold your hands in adoration of the Bhagavad Gita and then follow the Gita Path ( Reading the Gita). On this day, reading the Gita or listening to the holy book being recited are both regarded as religious activities. It is regarded extremely lucky to read even one poem or to begin the book now onwards.
