Chant Geeta, Enchant Krishna! 
National Geeta Chanting Competition 2024 
Chapter 12 

Vision & Objective of Gita Chanting  

Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda ji explained that the Bhagavad Gita is the “handbook for everyday living”. In order to bring this philosophy into children, Teenagers, Youth, Adults and Seniors, the Bhagavad Gita Chanting competition was pioneered by Chinmaya Mission.  Bhagavad Gita chanting and competitions are vehicles for inspiring and motivating participants to learn and memorize the sacred verses of Srimad Bhagavad Geeta.   

Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda explains the grand vision behind this project as follows:   

“Chant – Study – Know – Live”. Chanting introduces one to such a noble text. This kindles the curiosity to know more about the meaning and the contents. This in turn, leads to study. The knowledge gained thereby is translated into actions and thus becomes a way of life.”  

About the verses: 

The 12th Chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, the 'Yoga of Devotion', begins with Arjuna asking the Shri Krishna, 'Between the worship of Ishvara with form and without form, which method is superior?' Shri Krishna recommends former for most devotees as the worship of the formless is very difficult. He points out that the key quality is single-pointed devotion.  

Shri Krishna then goes to list the steps to attain oneness with Ishvara. He ends the Chapter by telling us who the Lord considers to be his devotee. Many a times we hear people say I am the devotee of the Lord, but here Lord says who is my devotee and lists the various qualities a devotee has. By attaining even one quality could open the door for acquiring the others.
