Gita Mahotsav (Sanskritगीतामहोत्सवromanizedGītāmahotsava), Gita Jayanti, also known as Mokshada Ekadashi or Matsya Dvadashi is a Hindu observance that marks the day the Bhagavad Gita dialogue occurred between Arjuna and Krishna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.It is celebrated on Shukla Ekadashi, the 11th day of the waxing moon of the lunar month Margashirsha (December–January) of the Hindu calendar.

The Delivery of the Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita ("The Song of God") is a prominent Hindu scripture which forms a part of the epic Mahabharata.The text itself is structurally divided into 18 chapters, containing 700 shlokas or couplets.

The Bhagavad Gita is presented as a dialogue between Arjuna, a prince, and Krishna, the embodiment of God. The contents of the scripture are derived from the Upanishads and discuss different paths of jnana (knowledge), karma (action) and bhakti (devotion) and how they lead to moksha (ultimate liberation) of the soul. The dialogue takes place just before the start of the Kurukshetra War. After several attempts at reconciliation failed, war was inevitable. The day of the war finally came, and the armies faced off on the field of war. Just as the battle was about to start, Arjuna asked Krishna to drive the chariot to the middle of the battlefield, to look more closely at the opposing forces. Seeing that the opposing side consisted of his relatives, teachers and friends, Arjuna was left in a state of moral dilemma about fighting them and sought help from Krishna. The conversation that ensued, Krishna's advice, messages and teachings to Arjuna, is what is known now as the Bhagavad Gita.

Keeping this tradition alive, VIVEKANANDA KENDRA VIDYALAYA, RANGAT, observed Gita Jayanti on 22nd December 2023.This day was celebrated at VKV ,Rangat , with complete devotion. Our Principal, Shri CH Shanmuga Rao paid homage to Lord Krishna and delivered a speech on the  importance of Bhagavad Gita.  .He also encouraged all to read & follow Bhagwad Gita in their life.  One of our Teachers, Miss Rinku presented a speech ,hilighting the importantance Bhagavat Gita in our daily life.
