Gita Chanting Celebration 2019

This year the Gita Jayanthi was on 8th Dec, 2019.  We celebrated in our school on 7th Dec, Saturday.  Bhagavad Gita is the gist of Mahabarat.  If we want to live nobly, successfully and purposefully then the study of the Gita is must.  Gita is the book for living.  We celebrate Gita Jayanthi because Gita contains the philosophy of our culture, of our organization, of our work.

         Mananeeya Eknathji used to study Gita daily.  He brought the whole nation together for the construction of Vivekananda Rock Memorial as per the directions laid out in Gita, particularly the qualities of a Bhakta in the 12th Chapter.  Due to this reason, 12th Chapter slokas from the Bhagavath Gita was read.
          We started with three ‘Omkaras’ at 10.30 am.  Six students from 7th and 8th standard chanted the slokas and it was followed by standard 1 to 12.
Eknathji used to say,
          ‘Opportunities are Duties’.  According to his quote, we utilized this opportunity on Gita Jayanthi, chanted the slokas and got the blessings of Sri Krishna.
