On this day, 5000 years ago, on the battlefield of Kurukshetra, the Supreme Lord delivered the most confidential and topmost knowledge of devotional service to His lotus feet in the form of the Bhagavad-Gita to His dearmost devotee Arjuna, and to humanity at large, in order to help all devotees understand the purpose of life and the way to surrender to Him.This day is also called Mokshada Ekadashi. It generally come in the month of December.
As stated in the Gita-mahatmya, if one properly follows the instructions of Bhagavad-Gita, one can be freed from all miseries and anxieties in this life, and one’s next life will be spiritual.
As we know that Bhagavad Gita is a book which is as opulent as Lord Krishna himself as it is the words directly coming from the mouth of Lord Krishna.
People reading this book even once experience a positive in their life this festival is all about spreading this positiveness in our society,our locality and also imbibe it in our hearts too. This festival is like a gift for those who want to earn spiritual merits in their life as it is said if any one even distributes one Bhagavad Gita it is equivalent to distributing 1000 Bhagavad Gita in any normal days of the year. At the same time one who hears or reads also gets 1000 times more spiritual benefits than any normal days so it is the best time for a New person to experience the positive vibes in their life by taking directly the infusion of lessons of perfectness with the science of practicality to understand this, to experience this it does not take a very big sacrifice for anybody, especially for those who are totally engrossed in material life and cannot understand at times that whatever they are doing is going in the right direction and will lead them to success in life
Sometimes we may even approach to spirituality but few common questions do comes in our mind which blocks our path, so for the convenience of all here are some questions answered for all the beginners
