Geeta Jayanti & Tapovan Jayanti 2019
Sunday, December 8, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
Join us for the double celebration of Geeta Jayanti & Tapovan Jayanti! On this auspicious day, all 700 verses of the Bhagavad Geeta will be chanted by study groups of Chinmaya Mission UK. The Bhagavad Geeta is considered the most important and influential Hindu scripture for its philosophical, practical, political, psychological and spiritual value. Bhagavad Geeta Jayanti, or simply Geeta Jayanti, marks the birth of this holy book. Geeta Jayanti is an annual celebration to commemorate the day when Lord Krishna rendered His philosophical teachings – immortalized in the epic Mahabharata – to Prince Arjuna on the first day of the 18-day battle of Kurukshetra. This day also marks the birthday of our revered Swami Tapovan Maharaj. Please join us for the celebrations. The event will conclude with a lunch mahaprasaad. Sponsorship opportunities are available!
