Gita Jayanti is the day on which Lord Krishna taught and gave Knowledge of life Geeta Gyan. The words that came out from the holy mouth of lord Krishna is what we called – “Shreemad Bhagvaat Geeta”. So Gita Jayanti is the day on which talk between lord Krishna and Arjun (one of the five brothers of pandava’s) is narrated by Sanjay to king Dhritrashtra.

It was the eleventh day (Ekadashi) of the bright half (Shukla Paksha) of the month of Margaseersha (Dec. – Jan.). So people and devotees celebrate Gita Jayanti on this day with devotion and happiness.

    GEETA IS A SACRED BOOK Geeta Jayanthi is an aspicious day. The teachings of Geet by Lord Sri Krishna is a way of life. Once you read Gaeeta and fallow the essence of it, one would really feel relieved from his problems. This IS my personal experience.
