All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

We have two very auspicious events happening on the same day coming Saturday- December 10th 2016.
- Advent of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita(Gita Jayanti)
- Moksada Ekadasi
One of the Vrata(vow) undertaken during Ekadasi is to read the Holy scriptures.
What can be more glorious on this Moksada Ekadasi than reading Bhagavad Gita on the very day that marks the 5153rd appearance day anniversary.
We at ISKCON Scarborough will be celebrating Gita Jayanti in a grand manner coming Saturday – December 10th 2016 by reading all the 700 English verses starting at 6.00 PM sharp!
Advent of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita(Gita Jayanti)
It was on this day 5153 years ago, that Sanjaya narrated to King Dhritarashtra the dialogue between Sri Krshna and Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra at the place now known as Jyotisha tirtha, 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.
Anyone who gifts a Bhagavad-Gita to a deserving person on this day is bestowed profuse blessings by Lord Krsna
There will be a grand Ekadasi feast served after the whole recitation.
On the auspicious occasion, we welcome you, your family and friends to join us at ISKCON Scarborough to recite the entire Gita verses and to partake the unlimited blessing of Sri Sri Radha Gopi Vallabha.
