Gita Jayanthi - Dec 12th
Post date: Nov 09, 2013 2:5:36 AM
Gita Jayanthi is on December 12th. We will be doing mass distribution of Bhagavad Gitas. Devotees can sponsor cases of Bhagavad Gitas for $200. Each case contains 20 Bhagavad Gitas. One can also sponsor 1/2 box for $100.
It is said in the Sastras:
gita-dana prabhavena, sapta-kalpa-mitah samah
visnu-lokam avapyante, visnuna saha modate
"The potency of presenting the Gita as a gift is such that the soul, having achieved a place in the planet of Lord Visnu , then associates with that Supreme Lord Visnu in divine ecstasy."
We request everyone to come forward and take advantage of this auspicious time by sponsoring and/or distributing Bhagavad Gitas.
