This Sunday I’ll be reciting the entire Bhagavad-gita at the temple with many other devotees of Lord Krishna. It’s something we’ve been doing for several years now, though it normally takes place on the Sunday closest to the Mokshada Ekadasi when the Bhagavad-gita was first spoken.
The Bhagavad-gita is 700 verses long and the recitation will take quite a few hours. Although it’s quite a sacrifice we’re expecting capacity attendance.Everyone will follow the verses as they’re chanted, and either read the English translations to themselves or chant along with the Sanskrit.
It’s all being broadcast online and we’ve set up a site where you can watch it or – better still – join in for a few minutes, an hour, or for the whole thing.
We’ll begin at 9.00 am London time and will probably finish around 2.00 pm. Before each chapter His Holiness Bhakti Purusottama Swami will be explaining the significance of the chapter.
