Gita Jayanti, Festival of the Bhagavad Gita - Sunday December 11

Bhagavad Gita (Song of God) is the crest jewel of India’s ancient wisdom. Five thousand years ago Lord Krishna spoke these 700 verses to His friend and disciple, Arjuna. They have illuminated and guided the path of Indian civilization ever since.

Part of the celebrations will be a ceremony in which offerings will be placed on the sacred fire while chanting each of the 108 principal verses. There will be a drama called “Dracula Gets A Gita”, music, dancing and feasting. A power point presentation on the big screen will tell you ‘everything you always wanted to know about the Gita.’ Hot meals will be served throughout the evening.
