Gita Jayanthi 2011

Gita Jayanti is considered to be the birthday of the Bhagavad Gita and is celebrated on the eleventh day (Ekadashi) of the bright half of the month of Margaseersha (December-January), according to the Hindu almanac. It is believed to be the day that Sanjaya narrated the dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna to King Dhritarashtra.

In Swami Sivananda’s words, “The Gita Jayanti marks one of the greatest days in the history of mankind. Nearly six thousand years ago on that day a dazzling flash of brilliant light lit up the firmament of human civilization. That flash, that marvellous spiritual effulgence, was the message of the Bhagavad Gita, given by the Lord Himself on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. Unlike ordinary flashes of light which die away after a split-second, this brilliant flash of that memorable day has continued to shine through the centuries, and even now illumines the path of humanity on its onward march to perfection”.

At the Bahrain Satsangh, this year the Gita Jayanthi was celebrated in two sessions – on the 8th and 10th of December at Sureshji & Radhikaji’s residences. We had a combined Satsangh and hence over 60 people participated in the celebration. The speeches were moderated by Vaishaliji (first session) and Somasundaramji (2nd Session).

As always, many of the talks were given by first time speakers and a number of these were young children. The very effective speeches by first time speakers was also testimony to the following oft repeated verses in the Dhyana Sloka..

‘Mookam karoti vaachaalam pangum langhayate girim;
Yatkripaa tamaham vande paramaanandamaadhavam’

I salute Lord Krishna, the supremely blissful one, by whose Grace makes a dumb man can become eloquent and a lame person cross over mountains!

Our thanks to Parameshwaranji for making the Audio of these talks available to us quickly.
