Our Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda worked tirelessly for forty years, propagating the message of the Bhagavat Geeta. Pujya Gurudev said that the Bhagavat Geeta is the “Handbook for everyday living”. In order to bring this philosophy into the life of these children, the Bhagavat Geeta Chanting competition was created, to motivate children and adults to learn to chant the Geeta and ultimately bring this philosophy into their lives.
Pujya Guruji, Swami Tejomayananda explains the grand vision behind this project as “Chant – Study – Know- Live. Chanting introduces one, to such a noble text. This kindles the curiosity to know more about the meaning and the contents. This in turn, leads to study. The knowledge gained thereby is translated into actions and thus becomes a way of life.
Chinmaya Mission Los Angeles has been conducting Geeta chanting competitions since 2000. The first three winners from each category receive trophies. Special recognition is awarded to deserving participants.
Gita Chanting Competition 2017 was held at Chinmaya Rameshwaram on Saturday, April 22nd.
