"Teachings of Bhagavad Gita should reach all parts of India, world": Amit Shah

Kurukshetra (Haryana): Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday said that teachings of the Bhagavad Gita should reach all parts of India and the rest of the world.

Addressing the 'Sant Sammelan 2023' on the occasion of Gita Jayanti Mahotsav, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said, "Prime Minister Modi wished for an annual International Gita Mahotsav, which CM Manoharlal Khattar fulfilled in 2016. The teachings of Bhagavad Gita should reach all parts of India and the world."

"The Mahotsav has been a huge success since 2016. For the last seven years, Gita Jayanti Mahotsav has been successfully organised and is achieving its objectives," he added.

International Gita Jayanti Mahotsav is underway in Haryana's Kurukshetra. The event began on December 7 and will conclude on December 24.

The celebration of Gita Mahotsav brings a moral and cultural resurgence among the people. It becomes even more relevant today as we are living in challenging times.

The prime objective of celebrating the festival of Gita Jayanti is to enlighten the people with the immortal and intangible heritage of Bhagavadgita- the song celestial.

The Government of Haryana has been celebrating the Gita Mahotsav festival in collaboration with the Kurukshetra Development Board in the city of Kurukshetra since the year 1989.

Earlier in the year 2016, the Government of Haryana took a decision to celebrate the festival of Gita Jayanti as International Gita Mahotsav in which more than two million people visited Kurukshetra which in fact proved a milestone in the history of the celebration of Gita Jayanti in Kurukshetra.

Again in the year 2017, 2018 and 2019, the festival of International Gita Mahotsav was organized in Kurukshetra. (ANI)
