Gita Jayanti – Mon. Dec 21st
Gita Jayanti is the birthday of Bhagvad Gita, the sacred text of the Hindus. It is celebrated on the Shukla Ekadasi, 11th day of the waxing moon of Margashirsha month (November-December) in the Hindu calendar. It is believed the “Bhagavad Gita” was revealed to Arjuna by Sri Krishna Himself in the battlefield of Kurukshetra (in present day Haryana, India). The text is written in third person, narrated by Sanjaya to King Dhritarashtra as it transpired between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. Sanjaya, the secretary of the blind King Dhritarashtra, had been blessed by his Guru, Vyasadev, with the power to remotely view the events taking place on the battlefield as they transpired.
Bhagvan Krishna Puja and Gita Jayanti program will commence at 7:00 PM.
Purnima – Sun. Dec 24th
On Purnima, “Satyanarayan Vrath Katha” is performed. Among the kathas that are prevalent, “Shri Satyanarayan Katha” is the most popular. Satyanarayan Vrat is the easiest and the most in-expensive way of self-purification and self -surrender at the feet of Hari. One who observes Purnima with full devotion and faith is sure to attain his heart’s desire. Our Shastras state that during hte “kalyug” , the fruit that one gets by hearing the Satyanarayan Katha is enormous . The Katha is dedcated to Lord Vishnu in his manifestation as Lord Satyanarayan . “Satya” means truth , “Nar” means Man and “Ayan” means a place .Thus the place where truth resides in man is call Satyanarayan. The “Satyanarayan Katha” and the “Vrat” helps us overcome vices like lust , anger, greed , attachments and ego.
Puja commences at 7:00 PM.
