“When disappointment stares me in the face and all alone I see not one ray of light, I go back to the Bhagavad Gita. I find a verse here and a verse there and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming tragedies – and my life has been full of external tragedies – and if they have left no visible, no indelible scar on me, I owe it all to the teaching of Bhagavad Gita.” — Mahatma Gandhi
The importance of reciting, studying and contemplating on the verses of the Bhagvat Gita cannot be stressed enough.Reciting and memorising verses of the Bhagvat Gita can especially benefit all the children in the world. This is true even if Bhagvat Gita is by hearted without understanding the intricacies, which one can appreciate at a later stage of development.
“gita sastram idam punyam, yah pathet prayatah puman
visnoh padam avapnoti, bhaya sokadi varjitah”
One who, with a regulated mind, recites with devotion this Bhagavad-gita scripture which is the bestower of all virtue, will attain to a holy abode such as Vaikuntha, the residence of Lord Visnu, which is always free from the mundane qualities based on fear and lamentation.
