December 20th commerates a very special day especially for Vaishnavas (worshippers of Bhagwan Vishnu). It's the auspicious day of Sri Vaikuntha Ekadasi and also Gita Jayanti. Vaikuntha ekadasi marks the day the doors of the holy abode of Bhagwan Vishnu is opened for devotees and Gita Jayanti marks the anniversary of the day Sri Krishna sang unto Arjuna and the world on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, the Srimad Bhagvad Gita.

The Gita as it's known worldwide is the direct word of God. Modern day scholars refers to it as the instructional manual on how to live life. It's used widely by today's motivational speakers due to it's context which solely deals with knowledge of the self, understanding one's being and coming to realize the inner potential and strength. It's the base of Sanatan Dharma. It owes it origin to Bhagwan Sri Krishna engaging in a conversation with Arjuna on the battle field in the famed book called the Mahabharat. This great text has proven itself to be personal to all aspirants that has truly made a world impact.
