Union Home Minister Amit Shah Advocates Global Dissemination of Bhagavad Gita’s Teachings

Union Home Minister Amit Shah emphasized the need for the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita to reach every corner of India and beyond, speaking at the ‘Sant Sammelan 2023’ during the Gita Jayanti Mahotsav.

During the event, Shah highlighted Prime Minister Modi’s vision for an annual International Gita Mahotsav, a wish fulfilled by Chief Minister Manoharlal Khattar in 2016. Shah stated, “The teachings of Bhagavad Gita should reach all parts of India and the world,” noting the success of the Mahotsav since its inception in 2016.

The ongoing International Gita Jayanti Mahotsav in Haryana’s Kurukshetra, which commenced on December 7 and will conclude on December 24, serves as a platform for moral and cultural resurgence. In the face of contemporary challenges, the celebration of Gita Jayanti holds significance, aiming to enlighten people with the timeless heritage of Bhagavadgita—the celestial song.

Haryana’s Government, in collaboration with the Kurukshetra Development Board, has been organizing the Gita Mahotsav festival in Kurukshetra since 1989. The decision in 2016 to elevate it to the International Gita Mahotsav witnessed over two million visitors, marking a historic milestone.

The festival continued in 2017, 2018, and 2019, drawing attention to the enduring relevance of the Bhagavad Gita’s teachings and fostering a global understanding of its profound wisdom.
