Gita Jayanti

Gita Jayanti And Mokshda Ekadashi

Gita Jayanti is the birthday of Bhagvad Gita, the sacred text of the Hindus. It is celebrated on the Shukla Ekadasi, 11th day of the waxing moon of Margashirsha month (November-December) in the Hindu calendar. It is believed the “Bhagavad Gita” was revealed to Arjuna by Sri Krishna Himself in the battlefield of Kurukshetra (in present day Haryana, India). The text is written in third person, narrated by Sanjaya to King Dhritarashtra as it transpired between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. Sanjaya, the secretary of the blind King Dhritarashtra, had been blessed by his Guru, Vyasadev, with the power to remotely view the events taking place on the battlefield as they transpired.

Mokshda Ekadashi, Gita Jayanti

एकादशी का उपवास समस्‍त गृहस्थों के लिये बहुत ही महत्‍वपूर्ण और लाभदायक है । पूज्य बापूजी कहते है कि “उपवास” का अर्थ होता है “उप-वास” अर्थात भगवान के समीप रहना । व्रत का उद्देश्य आत्‍मशांति और आत्‍मानंद का अनुभव करना है । अल्‍प भोजन से मन और बुद्धि अधिक प्रभावी ढंग से कार्य करने में समर्थ होते है ।
