Bhagavad Gita

Today, Shukla Ekadashi of the Hindu calendar, is Gita Jayanti, the birthday of the Bhagavad Gita. Must be one of the only books to have its birthday celebrated. One of the best places online to explore this ancient text is The Gita Supersite, India’s first cultural informatics project. Had contributed to it when I was at IIT Kanpur

“From a clear knowledge of the Bhagavad-Gita all the goals of human existence become fulfilled. Bhagavad-Gita is the manifest quintessence of all the teachings of the Vedic scriptures.” – Adi Sankara

“When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagavad Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. Those who meditate on the Gita will derive fresh joy and new meanings from it every day.” – Mahatma Gandhi
