PM greets people on Geeta Jayanti

Geeta Jayanti is observed every year on the Shukla Ekadashi, the 11th day of the waxing moon of the Margashirsha month of the Hindu calendar.  The day is also considered as the birthday of the Bhagavad Gita. This year, the Gita Jayanti marks the 5159th anniversary of the Bhagavad Gita, the holy text of Hindus, and will be observed on 3 December 2021. On this day, “Bhagavad Gita” was revealed to Arjuna by Krishna Himself on the battlefield of Kurukshetra (in present-day Haryana, India).

The Bhagavad Gita is believed to have been revealed to Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra by Krishna. It is written in the third person, as narrated by Sanjaya to King Dhritarashtra as it transpired between Krishna and Arjuna. As a result of the blessing, he received from his guru, Ved Vyasa, Sanjaya was able to remotely view the events taking place on the battlefield as they unfolded.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has greeted the people on the occasion of Geeta Jayanti.

In a tweet, the Prime Minister said;

“भारतामृत सर्वस्वं विष्णोर्वक्त्राद्विनिः सृतम्।

गीता गंगोदकं पीत्वा पुनर्जन्म न विद्यते।।

सभी देशवासियों को गीता जयंती की अनंत शुभकामनाएं। श्रीमद्भगवद्गीता सदियों से मानवता का मार्गदर्शन करती आई है। अध्यात्म और जीवन-दर्शन से जुड़ा यह महान ग्रंथ हर युग में पथ प्रदर्शक बना रहेगा।”
