Shrimad Bhagavad Gita Jayanti or Gita Day is observed as the birthday of THE BHAGAVAD GITA.  It is the day when the Bhagavad Gita was rendered by Lord Shri Krishna to the virtuous warrior Arjuna on the first day of the famous 18-day battle in the Mahabharata and as such marks one of the greatest days in the history of mankind.

This year, the date of Gita Day is Tuesday, December 18th.  It is celebrated on the 11th day of the waxing phase of moon (or Ekadashi Day of Shukla Paksha) in November-December (or Margasheersh month of the Hindu calendar).   The Mahabharata confirms that Lord Shri Krishna told the Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna in Kurukshetra (in the present-day Haryana, India) battlefield in 3137 BC. According to specific astrological references in the Vedic scriptures, the year 3102 BC is the beginning of Kali-Yuga which began 35 years after the battle, 5000 years ago.

The Bhagavad Gita is written in third person, narrated by Sanjaya to King Dhritarashtra as it transpired between Lord Sri Krishna and Arjuna.   Sanjaya, the secretary of the blind King Dhritarashtra, had been blessed by his teacher Guru Veda Vyasa, with the power to remotely view the events taking place on the battlefield as they transpired.  It comprises of 700 verses in Sanskrit in 18 chapters (chapters: 25 - 42) of the 6th book of the great epic Mahabharata.

Bhagavad Gita is a universal gospel and clarion call for action.  Its theme invokes real-life issues transpiring in the mind and discusses them by rooting itself in the present.  The greatest aspect of Bhagavad Gita is that it inspires a person to look at life refreshingly and constantly prompts to take decisions based on sacred human values.
