Gīta Jayanti International Networkers Our Mission
“All Hindus have full faith in the universal teachings of Mother Gīta. It is the mission of the Gīta Jayanti devotees to propagate the mass singing of the Gīta as an annual global spiritual event that unites all Hindus, and indeed all humanity, in devotion to The Supreme.”

Our Vision
“Every Gīta beilever must own a copy of the Śrīmad Bhagavad Gīta and recite from it every day. We firmly believe that when the scientific wisdom of the Gīta becomes common knowledge to the people of the world, very quickly, all quarrels, fights, wars and global disasters will come to an end.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Notes:
* 'Gīta Jayanti' is the anniversary of the Ekādaśī day when the Bhagavad Gita was first recited by Sañjaya to Dhṛtarāṣṭra. This was 11 days after Lord Kṛṣṇa had privately spoken it to His intimate devotee Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukṣetra, at Jyotisha Tirtha, Kurukshetra District, Haryana State, India, 51 centuries ago. * 'Ekādaśī' occurs twice every lunar month. It is the Eleventh Day of the waxing moon and the Eleventh Day of the waning moon (eka=1, das=10). Lord Viṣṇu created the Goddess Ekādaśī to control Pāpa-puruṣa (Sin personified). "Whoever does not eat grains on Ekādaśī is freed from all sins and never enters into hellish regions." - Padma Purāṇa, Chapter 14, Kriya-sāgara-sāra * Mokshadā Ekādaśī is the 11th day of the waxing moon in the lunar month of Mārgasīrsa (usually Nov/Dec) of the Pāñcāṅgam (Vedic Calendar) whereas Vaikuṇṭha Ekādaśī or Guruvāyur Ekādaśī appears in the Tamil Calendar on the 11th day of the waning moon which occurs in the Vedic solar month of Dhanus (Sagittarius, or Mārgazhi in Tamil). In some years, the dates for both events will coincide, but in other years, they will fall exactly one lunar month apart.
