Bhagavad Gita Jayanti is a very important day for Hindus. That day, the book sacred to Hindus, Bhagavad Gita was born i.e. Gita Jayanti is the day when Lord Shri Krishna said the Gita to Arjuna. It is celebrated on Shukla Ekadashi on the 11th day of the Margashirsha month of the Hindu calendar.
The “Bhagavad Gita” was revealed by Krishna himself to Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. Now this place is called Kurukshetra in the Indian state of Haryana. Kurukshetra is the holy and main religious place of Hindus. This book was written by a third person by what was narrated by Sanjay to King Dhritarashtra, because the Geetha was described between Lord Krishna and Arjuna. Sanjay was blessed and empowered by his teacher, Ved Vyas, to see events on the battlefield from a distance.
Geeta Jayanti is celebrated as a festival. The Gita Jayanti festival is celebrated all over the world by all devotees (followers of Sanatana Dharma) of Lord Krishna. The Gita contains around 700 verses which provide knowledge on many important aspects of life. Those who want to progress spiritually study the Geetha.
Most people also fast on this day because it is Ekadashi day (Ekadashi fasting is the eleventh day of the moon and Amavasya) – it happens twice every lunar month. On this day, bhajans and pujas are held. In places where this festival is celebrated in a big way, plays and Gita singing competitions are held to show children a way to encourage their interest in reading Gita. Yogis, monks and scholars give lectures and organize this holy book. Letters, booklets and books containing the essence of the Gita are distributed to the public. The distribution of free copies of the Gita on this holy day is especially auspicious.
