About Bhagavad Gita:
It was on this day over 5000 years ago, that Sanjaya narrated to King Dhritarashtra the dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra , and thus made the glorious teachings of the Lord available to the people of the world, for all time.
Srimad Bhagavad Gita shows a way to rise above the world of duality and the pairs of opposites, and to acquire eternal bliss and immortality. It is a gospel of action. It teaches the rigid performance of one's duty in society, and a life of active struggle, keeping the inner being untouched by outer surroundings, and renouncing the fruits of actions as offerings unto the Lord.
Srimad Bhagavad Gita is a source of power and wisdom. It strengthens us when you are weak, and inspires us when you feel dejected and feeble. It teaches us how to resist unrighteousness and follow the path of virtue and righteousness.
The teachings of the Gita are broad, sublime and universal. They do not belong to any particular cult, sect, creed, age, place or country. They are meant for all. They are within the reach of all. The Gita has a message for the solace, peace, freedom, salvation and perfection of all human beings.
We once again warmly welcome each one of you to join us tomorrow evening at 6pm to partake the blessing of Sri Sri Radha Gopi Vallabha
With best wishes from,
3500 McNicoll Avenue, Unit #3, Scarborough
