Join us for Grand Gita Jayanthi Celebrations on Saturday, Dec 7th.

Shastra Dana Seva opportunity:

On occasion of Gita Jayanthi, throughout the month of December, we will be distributing free Bhagavad Gita copies. This is possible by Shastra Dana sponsorships from Lord Krishna's devotees. Lord Krishna after speaking Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna states the following in the 18th chapter (verse 68 & 69):

"For one who explains the supreme secret to the devotees, devotional service is guaranteed, and at the end he will come back to Me. There is no servant in this world more dear to Me than he, nor will there ever be one more dear."

Bhagavad Gita has the power to illuminate our hearts and provides us the wisdom through which we can remain undisturbed and happy in challenging situations of life. It has solutions to all problems in life and gives us instructions so that we can be happy in this life and after life.

Highest benefit we can give to others is by giving the highest giftThe Bhagavad Gita. To contribute, please select an option below (Note: one box of Bhagavad Gita has 20 books)
