Today is Gita Jayanti – December 17, 2010 – Bhagavad Gita Jayanthi

Gita Jayanti falls on the Ekadashi day of Shukla Paksha (11th day of the bright half) of the Margashirsha month (November-December) in traditional Hindi Lunar calendar. It is believed that the discussion between Sri Krishna and Arjuna took place on the day and which later became popular as the Bhagavad Gita.

The Bhagavad Gita is a piece of art of strange beauty and its stands apart from everything else, in a class all by itself. It is liquid poetry expounding solid philosophy. In the lucidity of its meter it crystallizes some of the rarest gems of moral and spiritual values. Its breezy discourses have a firm style. The fluidity of its eloquence falls like merciful rain upon every broken personality, making it whole by its magic touch. It is not a book of science, and yet, it is very scientific in its approach to the theme. It has not the airy nothingness of familiar philosophical discourses, and yet, all philosophies seem to meet within its ample stretch.Swami Chinmayananda

The secret of success as told by Krishna to Arjuna in Bhagavad Gita

Today is Gita Jayanti - the day when Sri Krishna and Arjuna held the discussion which later came to be known as Bhagavad Gita  We should be so completely absorbed in work or study as to become unaware of everything else, even of its results. To achieve the best results from what we do, we should be focused on the action with undivided attention. Action should be done sincerely without worrying about its results. The results of the action will be greater if we put all attention and energy into the action itself and do not allow our energy to be diverted by thinking of results. The result will depend on energy put into action. We are asked not to worry about results during the course of action. The secret of living a meaningful life is to be very active, and do our best without thinking of our own selfish motives or even the results. A Self-realized person works for the good of all.
