By | November 21, 2011

    Bhagavath Gita Prardhana
Om pardhaya prathibodhitam  Bhagavatha Narayanena swayam
Vyasena gradhitam purana  munina madhye Maha Bharatham
Adhvaitamruta varshineem  Bhagavatheem Ashtadasadyayaneem
Amba twamanusandadami  Bhagavath Geethe Bhavadweshineem
The Bhagavath Gita contains divine words emanating from the lips of God Himself.  Its glory is infinite,unlimited.  None can really  describe it.  Gita contains the essence of all the four  Vedas. Even though the  style is so simple and elegant, the thought behind those words is so deep that even a lifelong constant study does not show one the end of it. The virtues, glory, essential character, truth,  mystery,  worship of God,  topics of action and knowledge have been discussed in the Gita. By taking a plunge [holy dip ] in the sacred waters of the Ganga and through the practice of japa of the Gayatri, man attains liberation,no doubt,whereas the student of Gita liberates not only himself but others as well.
                 The Gita is a perfect quality example [epitome ]of all the scriptures and Gita always emphasizes on practice. The complete essence of this Bhagavath Gita cannot be got even after the mastery of Gita but  only by repeated practice in our daily lives.Mastering Gita 108 or 1008 times is of no use.Whatever statements have been made in it are true to the very letter.Atleast follow one word  from this and experience the essence of it.
                 Gita always emphasizes on limited food, sleep and work.Before practising Gita definitely follow these instructions. Inspite of practising this in our daily lives, we  do  experience  difficulties  of  the  past  karma, but the rest of our lives should be spent in a useful way like I do. It is my desire and wish that all of you will definitely follow my path and mould your lives according to its teachings.
Margasira Suddha Ekadasi   — Birth of Gita.
                  I am truly blessed that i too am born on this land ,where the Gita has taken its birth and for this i must have done a lot of good deeds in my past birth.
I consider Gita my ”MOTHER, FATHER  and  GURU”.
                  On this auspicious day i am definitely going to do the parayanam of the 18 chapters at Sanjeevini Peetam.  Lord Hanuman is very fond of Bhagavath  Gita. He was one of the four people to have heard the Bhagavath Gita from Lord Krishna directly and seen the Vishwaroopa  form.  I am sure he will definitely listen to our parayanam too, if it is said with total sincereity and devotion.  I would like all the devotees to do the parayanam of these chapters at their respective homes.  For those who find it difficult to do the parayanam of  all 18 chapters, parayanam of chapter 12 and 15 can be done.  No particular prasadam has to be done for this Jayanthi.  The real prasadam is buying Gita books,high lighting its essence and distributing the books to everybody.
Practise Gita,experience peace and prosperity coming into your lives.With constant meditation and Hanuman smaranam i wish you all the best in your present and future.
