"If the Upanishads present the aim and purpose of human life, the Bhagavad Gita indicates the way to attain them and live a life of fulfillment. By faithfully following that path shown by the Bhagavad Gita, man can make his life sublime, leave behind him footprints on the sands of time." - Parama Pujya Sri Swamiji
After the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple's Kumbhabhisheka in the summer of 2015, His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji emphasized the importance of Bhagavad Gita and instructed everyone to study the holy Gita. Continuing the divine vision and sankalpa of Parama Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, the goal is to have the kids and adults memorize or at least fluently recite all 18 chapters (700 Verses) of Srimad Bhagawad Gita.
We are planning to conduct professional recitation claseess (free) at Sunnyvale Hindu Temple from 5pm to 6pm on weekly once Saturday.
Following His directive, 41 kids of ages 7-17 already memorized the entire Bhagavad Gita (18 chapters consisting of 700 shlokas) within 10 months. Many witnessed the grand event when these children recited the entire Gita from memory on July 17, 2016. Enjoy these 2015-16 Sampoorna Bhagavad Gita Parayana videos to gain further insight into the July 2016 event:
