HINDU FASTS & FESTIVALS : 17-2.
17. GITA JAYANTI-2.
The Gita is the most beautiful and the only truly philosophical song.
It contains sublime lessons on wisdom and philosophy.
It is the “Song Celestial”.
It is the universal gospel.
It contains the message of life that appeals to all, irrespective of race, creed, age or religion.
The Gita was given to us about six thousand years ago through Arjuna, an Indian prince, by
Sri Krishna, the Lord incarnate.
The teachings are based on the Upanishads, the ancient, revealed metaphysical classics of India.
The Gita shows a way to rise above the world of duality and the pairs of opposites, and to acquire eternal bliss and immortality.
It is a gospel of action.
It teaches the rigid performance of one’s duty in society, and a life of active struggle, keeping the inner being untouched by outer surroundings, and renouncing the fruits of actions as offerings unto the Lord.
