Gita Jayanti – 30th of November 2017

Gita Jayanti – 30th of November 2017

Gita Jayanti in 2017 falls on the 30th of November, Thursday; based on Ekadashi day per Hindu calendar and corresponding occurrence of the moon. It is celebrated on different dates each year, but normally in the end of November and mostly in December. The Bhagavad Gita (holy book) is regarded as the most sacred Hindu script. ‘Jayanti’ means birth, so it is the Birthday of the Hindu holy book Gita (also sometimes spelt – Geeta). And the event-celebration is termed Gita Jayanti. Gita in Hinduism is like, the Bible for Christians, Quran for Muslims, Guru Granth Sahib for Sikhs, Torah for Jews, Tripitaka for the Buddhists, Avesta for Zoroastrianism, Agam for Jainism, Aqdas for Bahai etc. Hinduism is regarded as the oldest religion in the world. Though, today only about 15% of the world population follows Hinduism. But in many contexts and globally, Buddhism (refers to 4 Vedas of Gita), Sikhism, Jainism etc are considered as part of, branch or overlapping with Hinduism, per ancient roots, resemblance etc. The systems, customs, followings, enchanting, practices, calendars, script meaning-learnings etc. are quite similar.

Gita Jayanti is primarily celebrated in India and Nepal, but also remotely in some other parts of the world like Singapore (organized by the Singapore Hindu Endowment Board), Malaysia etc., and devotees of Lord Krishna the world-over. It is celebrated especially as decorations and/or lightning of temples (particularly of Lord Krishna, ISKCON etc.), chanting of yantras-mantras, bhajans-poojas, prayer ceremonies, offering of Prasada (Sanskrit word; meaning sacred, religious food, sweets), holy  dips in sacred waters like Kurukshetra pond, some devotees fast, perform folk dance (e.g. http://kurukshetra.nic.in/GitaJayanti/gitajayanti.htm) etc.

India’s President Mr. Ram Nath Kovind recently said:”Bhagavad Gita provides solutions to inner conflicts (Dwandh)”. Gita helps to distinguish between what is right and what is wrong, to follow the upright path, connection with the Almighty God etc.

Bhagavad Gita (or simply called Gita) is a 700 verse (called Shaloka) Sanskrit (language) scripture. It covers Mahabharata, aspects of Dharma (duty, work, religion etc.), Yogs (righteous joining-coming together of different aspects), Moksha (liberation, freedom), etc. It is expected to have been written around 4th century BC.
