Hello dear friends, On Friday 9th November, we are celebrating the supremely auspicious day of Gita Jayanti, the anniversary of the day that Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad Gita to His dear devotee, Arjuna.
(The actual day of Gita Jayanti is Saturday 10th November, however, we will celebrate it on Friday 9th, since we are all coming together for the Friday Night Gita anyway.)
To mark the occasion, we will be holding a special program at the temple in which we will recite the entire Bhagavad Gita! By hearing this ‘Song of God’, we will become completely purified and enlightened.
Since Krishna and his words are non-different, just by hearing and reciting the Bhagavad Gita, we are directly associating with the Supreme Personality of Godhead Himself!
The program will commence at 5pm and the recitation will continue til 8pm, after which we will serve a vegetarian meal (prasadam). NB. We humbly request all qualified cooks to bring with them a preparation, otherwise the usual cooks will spend all their time cooking and miss out on the reading. Please let us know if you can bring something.
Please come along and take full advantage of this great festival! P.s please bring your Bhagavad Gita with you if you have one!
Thank you very much, your servants,
Caitanya Vallabha das and Jagannathesvari devi dasi
