On the auspicious ocassion of Maha Shivratri (21st February 2020) Chinmaya Mission Mumbai, launched the Chinmaya Geeta Paaraayan Yagna.
Paaraayan is a sadhana where in one recites/reads the scriptures and completes it, within a specific duration.
The sadhana successfully concluded on the first day of Navaratri (17th October 2020).
Through the length of this sadhana, every morning, a video with the chanting of 3-4 verses of the Geeta, in sequence, was posted, along with their meaning, on 18 Whatsapp groups and one Telegram group, with an approx. total of 7000 members from all over the world who further forwarded it to their family and friends.
If you wish to start a Paaraayan of all the 700 verses of the Geeta, you can download the chanting, chapter wise, and save it.
The Geeta Maahaatmyam (Glory of Geeta) found in Varaha Purana says in verse 6:
Sahaayo jaayate sheeghram
yatra geetaa pravartate.
pathanam paathanam shrutam.
"Help comes quickly where the Geeta is recited and, O Earth, I ever dwell where it is read, heard, taught and contemplated upon!"
Lets chant the Geeta and live the Geeta-way-of-life.
Jai Sri Krishna! Jai Geeta ma! Jai Gurudev!
