Gita Jayanti is the birthday of Bhagavad Gita, the sacred text of Hindus. It’s celebrated on the Shukla Ekadashi, 11th day of waxing moon of Margashirsha (Agrahayan) month of the Hindu calendar. It is believed the “Bhagavad Gita” was revealed to Arjuna by Krishna Himself in the battlefield of Kurukshetra (in present-day Haryana, India). The text is written in the third person, narrated by Sanjaya to King Dhritarashtra as it transpired between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. Sanjaya, the secretary of the blind King Dhritarashtra, had been blessed by his Guru, Veda Vyasa, with the power to remotely view the events taking place on the battlefield as they transpired.


Gita Jayanti is observed on the 11th day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) of Margashirsha month as per traditional Hindu calendar. Gita Jayanti 2020 date is December 25. It is believed that the Bhagavad Gita was rendered by Lord Krishna to Arjuna on this day. Gita Jayanti falls on the Shukla Paksha Ekadashi day of the Margashirsha month (November – December).

The discourse of Bhagavad Gita took place just before the start of the Kurukshetra war. This is the brief history prior to that:

After several attempts at reconciliation failed, the war was inevitable. Out of pure compassion and sincere love for His devotee and best friend, Arjuna, Lord Krishna decided to become his charioteer during the battle. The day of the war finally came and both armies gathered on the battlefield face to face. Just as the battle was about to start, Arjuna asks Lord Krishna to drive the chariot to the middle of the battlefield between both armies to have a look at the opposing armies. Seeing his Grandsire Bhishma who raised him with great affection since childhood, and his teacher Dronācārya who had trained him to become the greatest archer, Arjuna’s heart began to melt. His body started to tremble and his mind got confused. He became unable to perform his duty as a Kshatriya (warrior). He felt weak and sickened at the thought that he would have to kill his relatives, his friends and revered persons in this confrontation. Being very despondent, he told his friend Krishna of his sudden change of heart and turned to Him for advice. The conversation that ensued, Lord Krishna’s advice, messages & teachings to Arjuna, lolo is what is known now as the Bhagavad Gita, ancient scripture and non-sectarian philosophical work.

Bhagavad Gita on the Self Realized Soul

Bhagavad Gita on the Self Realized Soul
He who has attained stability of mind
through the practice of Yoga,
and who considers the whole spectacle
with the same regard,
he sees the Self in all beings,
and he sees all beings in the Self!
He who sees Me in all things,
and who sees all things in Me,
he is never separated from Me,
nor am I ever separated from him!
He who is established in unity,
who worships Me who dwells in all beings,
that yogin – whatever his way of life –
also dwells in Me! (Gita VI, 29-31)
