The Gita Jayanti is celebrated on the eleventh day of the bright half of Margashrisha (November-December). It is believed that on this day Lord Krishna taught Arjuna the sacred lore of Gita on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, and thus made available to the whole of human race the Song Celestial.
Bhagvad Gita forms a part of the famous epic Mahabharata.
At the beginning of the great war between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, Arjuna, touched with pity for the possible slaughter and bloodshed of friends and relations, appealed to Krishna for guidance. Krishna had refused to take up arms on either side but accepted to become Arujua's charioteer.Then lord Krishna Gave the Knowledge of life and beyond the life to him. He told each and every thing about the life of a human being. This knowledge made bright way to Arjun that time and now the people across the country adopts Gita Saar in their life. People who adopt Gita Saar in life will never get unhappy and stressed, it is said. Krishna urged Arjuna to follow his dharma or duty as a soldier and a Kshatriya, forgetting all other considerations. It immediately dispelled all his doubts and gloom, and he engaged himself whole-heartedly in the performance of his dharma.
The Gita makes it crystal clear in no uncertain terms that the path of salvation lies in action performed without desiring its fruits, which should be dedicated at God's lotus feet. This is real nishkam karmayoga, which leads to attainment of true happiness, peace of mind and freedom from passions. By devoted actions, without attachment to their results, one gets ones desires uprooted, and finally attains perfect serenity of soul and quiescence in the Supreme Soul at the time of death.
On the Gita Jayanti day, the Gita is read, recited and discourses are held on its various philosophical aspects People fast and worship Krishna and the Gita, and resolve to study and imbibe the spirit of Gita with far greater efforts. As a matter of fact, a pocket edition of the Gita must always be kept, and its selected verses repreated whenever there is such an opportunity, because the more we study it, the more enlightened we are.
