Every year, the birth of Srimad Bhagwad Gita is celebrated as the Gita Jayanti. A visit to Kurukshetra during the festival is a spiritually elevating experience. The environment of the town is immersed in sanctity.

Geeta Jayanti The event celebrates the treatise on 'karma' that Lord Krishna, the main protagonist of the epic, delivered to Arjun in the divine moment. Mythology has it, that Kurukshetra was witness to the Mahabharata battle fought between the Pandavas and the Kauravas. In the battle of right versus wrong, Lord Krishna was the charioteer of Arjun. As the forces came to stand before each other, Arjun was filled with anguish. His brothers, kith and kin stood against each other for battle. At that point of time, Lord Krishna delivered the celestial song of Gita Updesh, the path of selfless 'Karma' (action), 'Gyana' (knowledge), and single-hearted devotion to the Lord, to the wavering Arjun.
