ISKCON Scarborough - Gita Jayanti-Friday 25th Dec 2020 - Virtual celebrations and reading of the verses starts at 6 pm!

Hare Krishna!
Please accept our humble obeisances!
All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
All glories to Sri Guru and Sri Gauranga!

This year is an unusual year. One of its many unusual features is that Christmas and Gita Jayanti, the speaking of Bhagavad-Gita (The Song of God), are celebrated on the same day.

Friday- 25th Dec 2020 is the day when we also celebrate Moksada Ekadasi.

One of the Vrata(vow) undertaken during Ekadasi is to read the Holy Scriptures.

What can be more glorious during Moksada Ekadasi day than reading Bhagavad Gita on the very day that marks the 5157th appearance day anniversary?

We (ISKCON Scarborough, ISKCON Toronto, ISKCON Milton) will celebrating this Gita Jayanti virtually in a grand manner by reading all the 700 English verses starting at 6.00 PM sharp!

The advent of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita(Gita Jayanti)
It was on this day 5157 years ago, that Sanjaya narrated to King Dhritarashtra the dialogue between Sri Krishna 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 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
