Gita Jayanti is observed on the 11th day (Ekadashi Tithi) of the Shukla Paksha Margashirsha month. On this day, devotees celebrate the birth anniversary of the holy Srimad Bhagavad Gita. According to religious belief, Lord Krishna preached the Gita to Arjuna on the day before the Mahabharata war.
Why do we celebrate Gita Jayanti?
It is said that the birth anniversary of no holy book is celebrated in the world. But the birth anniversary of the Shrimad Bhagwat Gita is celebrated. The reason given behind this is that other texts have been compiled by humans but Shrimad Bhagwat Gita was born from the mouth of Lord Shri Krishna himself.
