The "Gita Jayanti" special event was celebrated at the Shri Laxmi-Narayan Mandir in Brisbane with about 100 Devotees, despite the rainy season. Devotees from the ISKCON Brisbane Temple recited the full Bhagavat Gita Shlokas from 1.00pm to 4.00pm, followed by the Pravachan by respected Pundit Tripatiji on the "Advent of Gita Jayanti". The Bhajan Team also pleased the Lord and all Guest Devotees with sweet Kirtan and Bhajans of the Supreme Lord. The Maha Prasadam was sponsored by Mr & Mrs Patel of Brisbane. The Holy Book "Gita" was also donated by the Hare Krishna Devotees on this auspicious day. May Lord Krishna bless everyone. Hare Krishna!

Gītā Jayanti Brisbane kī........ JAYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Thank you Ashmita mātājī for your wonderful seva of making this video available for all of us!

 

Many many thanks to HG Bharat Solanki Jī who spontaneously supported and helped make this event come to pass!  Hare Krishna!

 

One tiny comment, if I may, based on my past experience..  The pace (speed/tempo) appeared to me to be okay for adults who are already familiar with the Gītā, but i think it was too fast for children and the beginners-in-sanskṛt, who would have been left lagging behind.  

 

From your report, I gather that the entire Gītā was completed in 3 hours.   Normally the speed that I keep to takes us 4 and a half hours to complete - my focus always is participation - so that the children and the newly-interested persons (the ones who need the most encouragement) get that chance to become absorbed in the chanting.  There is a natural tendency for the ones who know to lead, and gradually, without realizing it, speed up along the way.  I just hope that in future, some less experienced ones might be called upon to lead, say one chapter each, and they would then naturally slow the tempo down.  We have experimented many times before... and when we slow it down, or get all the children to sit together at the front and get every single person present to join in, then, no one feels that it is slow or dragging - that is the power of the mṛdaṅga and kārtals!   Just some inputs for future consideration.  May everyone in Australia come to learn this wonderful art of singing The Divine Song Of God!  Haribol!
