The Gita Jayanti day, or the Day when the Gita was revealed to the world, is celebrated traditionally on the 11th day of the bright half (Sukla Paksha) in the month oiMargasira.The pious Gita is a composition of the dialogues exchanged between Krishna and Arjuna, just before the Mahabharata war. Later it was integrated in Mahabharata by Ved Vyas. It is composed of more than one hundred thousand shlokas. The Gita comprises three distinct sections that illustrate the three terms of the Mahavakya of the Sama Veda – Tat-Tvam- Asi.

The contents of Gita stress over the developing of an attitude of non¬attachment like a lotus-leaf not wet by water. The one who places all his actions to the grace of god will not be affected by sin. Non-attachment grows out of Satya which is a divine attribute. On Gita Jayanti special Puja and rendition of the Bhagavad Gita is performed. People pray to Lord Krishna to shower his grace on all his devotees.
