HARI - HAr GhaR GIta

Bhagawad Gita is the essence of all Upanishadic knowledge encapsulated to cater to the welfare of the mankind across eons, through selfless service, devotion and knowledge. Parama Pujya Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, during the first consecration celebrations (Kumbhabhishekam) of Kārya Siddhi Hanuman Temple in August 2015, emphasized the importance of Bhagawad Gita and instructed everyone to study Gita. Following HIS command 175+ students of ages 5-49 memorized the entire Bhagawad Gita of 18 chapters consisting of 700 shlokas. As a humble tribute to their Sadguru Pujya Sri Swamiji, these kids have formed into groups and have taken a resolve (HARI - HAr GhaR GIta) to spread the importance and benefits of Srimad Bhagawad Gita Parayana to various households and organizations
