On the auspicious occasion of Gita Jayanti 2019
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to our dear Srila Prabhupada.
In the Bhagavad Gita chapter 10 text 35 Lord Krsna says that “Of months, I am November and December.” Also December is the time when the Lord spoke our most sacred scripture, the Bhagavad Gita.
This auspicious event is known as Gita Jayanti and to observe it, devotees all over the world unite in a loving and unified effort, to sponsor and distribute as many Bhagavad Gitas as possible to the general mass of people. This is also a wonderful opportunity to give Bhagavad Gitas as gifts to our family members, friends and colleagues.
ISKCON Philadelphia has always been one of the leading temples for book distribution going all the way back to 70s. I pray that you can all come together during this auspicious time and keep the spirit of book distribution alive, by participating in this year’s Gita Jayanti Mahotsava. Although I am not there to join with you, I will be going out starting this Tuesday to distribute Bhagavad Gitas that have been sponsored by loving devotees here in the Atlanta area.
Your sponsorship of a case or more of Bhagavad Gitas, will be a blessing to the residents of Philadelphia. Devotees from the congregation are planning to distribute these sponsored Gitas in the coming days. This is the greatest blessing that we can bestow upon the conditioned souls, and it gives the greatest pleasure to our dear Srila Prabhupada.
