Happy Gita Jayanti
Gita Jayanti is celebrated as a major festival in Hinduism because according to Hindu mythological belief, Gita itself is a very sacred scripture that was narrated by Lord Krishna himself to Arjuna.
Gita Jayanti 2022 year celebrates the 5159th anniversary of Gita, but Gita is a timeless and universal manual of life. Bhagavad Gita played a pivotal role in inspiring the freedom struggle of Bharat and its impact on the evolution of the Bharatiya thought process in 20th and 21st centuries.
But this has hardly been discussed in our textbooks as well as the public discourse due to the domination of colonial and Marxist schools of historians in Indian academia. These two schools painted the Bhagavad Gita merely as a religious text.
Bhagwad Gita is a manual of human excellence meant for humanity and understanding it is essential even to shape the glorious remerging Bharat.
Let's realize our full potential by applying #bhagwadgita timeless teachings in our life!
