About the Greater Purpose of Geeta Competition
From the recitation of the Bhagavad Geeta arises the desire to know its meaning. Thence arises the Knowledge (of the Self). From this Knowledge arises fulfillment. Hence an individual must recite the Bhagavad Geeta.
The study of the Geeta is the key to opening the vast treasure of God’s love for us. It starts with chanting, then study, and over time, assimilating (embracing) that same love wholeheartedly and completely. Geeta Chanting allows one to begin this journey here and now, and opening themselves to the embrace of the infinite love.
Bhagavad Geeta Chapter 2 (Verses 1-38)
Sankhya Yoga (The Yoga of Knowledge)
Welcome to a special year in Geeta Chanting Yajna!
As a tribute to our Pujya Gurudev, every Chinmaya Centre shall strive to celebrate Geeta Chanting Yajna in a grand scale. Our Gurudev believed that everyone should learn the Bhagavad Geeta and live the Geeta in their life. May everyone succeed in their pursuit to learn Bhagavad Geeta!

To motivate Children and Adults to chant the Geeta and ultimately bring this philosophy into their lives beyond all religions.
